One Big Bag of Weird

delay_ burke_dancing_with_the_stars.jpgThere are a lot of different kinds of weird. There’s the weird of realizing what had to happen between your parents to make you. There’s the weird of managing to be all tied up after 162 games. But then there’s the weird that, as my old Sunday school teacher would say, transcends all understanding. That’s right, I’m talking about the weird of watching Tom Delay on Dancing With the Stars.

Tom Delay. The Hammer. The man who was able to achieve a veritable cat-herding feat by first organizing the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives and then by keeping them in line. The man who helped redistrict Texas to such an extent that no Democrat will ever win outside their existing district for the next generation. And now he’s doing the rumba.

Let me explain this in layman’s terms. It’s like Ty Cobb quitting baseball to lead a civil rights campaign. Ok, maybe it’s not that extreme but it’s also not that far off. Perhaps it’s more like A-Rod leaving his gorgeous wife to date an over-the-hill pop star. Yeah, that sounds about right.

However, all of this oddness led me to an almost stunningly brilliant idea for another long-serving representative. Picture it: Nancy Pelosi leaves the Congress to lead a b-boy pack that takes America’s Best Dance Crew by storm. Hey, weirder things have happened. Just ask your parents.

Ty Cobb leading a Civil Rights Campaign is like letting Barry Bonds use steroids whenever he wants. Wait he already does? Oh….

I’m with Peter. Why are you watching “Dancing with the Stars?” I figured you for a C-Span kind of guy.

That was a great game, Allen. I really thought the Tigers were going to win, both when they were ahead 3-0 and then when they took the lead in the 10th. I also think they got hosed on that hit-by-pitch call, that ball clearly brushed him. But I don’t think I will ever see a more dramatic game in my entire life.-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.blogspot.com
