Rick Perry is doing "Dancing with the Stars"?!

Fine with me. It's good to dance.

He'll be competing with Olympians Ryan Lochte and Laurie Hernandez.

Tom Delay did it too. When he was done in electoral politics. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see how "Dancing with the Stars" is a good warmup to a primary run against Ted Cruz for the Senate.

He's an exonerated felon, what has he got to lose?

Big Mike said...

Am I alone in predicting a win for the gold medalist gymnast?

The person most obviously missing is JoJo Fletcher, the most recent Batchelorette.

I suspect that ABC has forbidden DWS to use any more of the recent Batchelors or Batchelorettes, because the DWS experience seems to split up the engagements.

The big exception was that Bachelor and DWS star Sean Lowe did get married to Katherine Giudici.

Big Mike at 4:37 PM

DWS should stop using gymnasts and ice skaters.

MadisonMan said...

Marilu Henner and Maureen McCormick too! And Vanilla Ice.

I'd love to be the group that decides the lineup. They have a great sense of who is hot and who is likely to pique interest.

Fun to picture him completely flubbing and responding with "Oops."

Doing some Internet research about former Bachelor and DWS star Sean Lowe, I discovered to my dismay that I missed a recent Celebrity Wife Swap episode that featured:

# Lowe and Catherine (née Giudici) Lowe

and

* former Bachelor Jason and Molly (née Malaney) Mesnick

Each couple became engaged on The Bachelor and then eventually did an episode of Celebrity Wife Swap together !!

How cool is that !!!!

Here is how an ABC webpage summarized the CWS episode:

-----
When it’s time for the swap, both Catherine and Molly are unsure of what they are getting into but soon after arriving to their new homes, they immediately recognize the new men in their lives since Molly even attended Catherine’s televised wedding.

Soon after meeting their new husbands, Catherine stumbles into the role of working mom helping take care of [Jason's and Molly's two-year-old daughter] Riley and as substitute co-host on Molly’s radio show, while Molly takes on Catherine’s responsibilities of taking care of Sean’s every need without taking into consideration her own interests and personal needs in Dallas.

When it’s time for the rules change, both women are ready with everything from a chest wax and doggie car seats to baking cookies for Riley.

I hope I can find this episode on my cable TV's "on-demand" lists.

The asshole up thread who called Perry "an exonerated felon" needs to go back to school and learn what "exonerated" means.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Godfather, I was being sarcastic. Do you want me to go into detail? Obviously he was horribly abused by what I can only call the "justice" system.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Meanwhile, Marilu Henner AND Maureen McCormick? How do I get on?

In my dreams? Yes, that will work out nicely...

As Ace of Spades would say, I'll be in my bunk.

The Drill SGT said...

slam dunk for the gymnast. She has a male professional to handle the basic stuff and fling her 100 lb body around.

gold for Laurie Hernandez.

rehajm said...

Marilu Henner and Maureen McCormick too!

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

Did you see the smokin' promo shot of Henner? My stars...

Birkel said...

I just wish the Bread and Circuses were more entertaining.

David Begley said...

And don't forget the Dems in Austin brought criminal charges against him for doing his job regarding spending. I admire Rick.

David Begley said...

Bad Lt

You can be sarcastic but be precise in your language and facts.

Case dismissed on the pleadings.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Who wants to see a dunderheaded dildo who can't even figure out how to wear a pair of glasses properly, dance?

Oh yeah. The Professor does.

Lady, he can't even talk. I highly doubt his ability to coordinate his leg and arm and back muscles is any better. The most grace he ever exhibited with a lady was shutting up.

Kate said...

I only watched DWTS once to cheer on Cloris Leachman. Can Perry bring the Cloris magic?

Anyone can vote for the obvious gymnast. I like to vote for the klutz with heart.

Not funny because it implies he was convicted of a felony but what hard-drinking Aggie Yell Leader would ever do something serious like that? He is harmless except when he tries to put two sentences together without a teleprompter and then he only harms himself.

Well, if the voting machines were not hacked already, they are now. Homeland Security placed in charge of national elections, superseding the Constitutionally ordained State process.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

I'm on board with all this now that I've figured out that Rick Perry is not Tom Ridge.

Limited blogger said...

Luckily its only the Texas 2 step... he wouldn't have remembered the 3rd...ba dum tsh!

Marc Puckett said...

Panem et circenses , indeed, bread and circuses. Maybe that Trump fellow and President Clinton can decide the 2020 presidential contest by means of a dancing contest, televised in prime time.

traditionalguy said...

I bet Perry wins the whole thing. He was a college cheerleader and has an astute set of social skills. Dancing with a partner should be easy for DaRick.

Crazy Jane said...

Maybe we should have tried to interest Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in this Dancing with the Stars thing. I'd pretend to watch, if it would make the ratings look better, and we could have some credible candidates in November.

"Did you see the smokin' promo shot of Henner? My stars..."

Wow! What legs!

Caroline Walker said...

Rick perry. Governor mcdreamy.

Char Char Binks said...

It's a chance for Ryan Lochte to redeem himself after he lied and called being held and forced to hand over money at gunpoint "robbery".

Bad Lieutenant said...

Well, getting into the weeds on the legal, ianal, but he was accused of a felony correct? Arrested, indicted? And then was he not exonerated? What then does exonerated mean? Found innocent, and so he's not exonerated because it never went to trial? Then what is he? What Vindication has he had? Where does he go to get his reputation back? That's terrible!

Anyway it was outrageous what was done to him. But, I imagine it is liberating.

Best mugshot ever, BTW.
