As you may have heard, former Republican House Majority Leader Tom "The Hammer" Delay has decided to take up dancing while waiting for his charges of money laundering to play out. Yes, Delay has joined the cast of 'Dancing With The Stars.' (Or Dancing With The Creeps, as one writer put it.) Delay is 62, has had no formal dance training, and according to a Fox News report, his favorite dance is the Texas Two-Step. Now, ABC has released promotional photos of Delay and his 'Dancing With The Stars' partner Cheryl Burke practicing for their hot September debut. Delay looks cheerful in the pictures, and they certainly hint of interesting things to come. As Executive Producer Conrad Green, of the show said in a recent interview: "We wanted someone sort of iconic and who the audience would have strong feelings about."
