Sob! Tom DeLay Leaves “Dancing With The Stars”

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay made his debut on “Dancing With the Stars” with the cha-cha and made our hearts beat to the rhythm of “Wild Thing.” But now, at the urging of doctors and ABC producers, DeLay will withdraw from the competition after being diagnosed with stress fractures in both feet from dancing. He reportedly wears foot braces when he’s not in the ballroom, but the samba he performed Monday seemed worth the discomfort to him. “What’s a little pain when you can party?” DeLay said before his last dance. Take care of your feet, Tom. We want you well enough to dance the Texas two-step for the season finale. [NPR]
