Tom DeLay’s Homepage Photo Is an Odd Choice


Let’s break down the photo that currently graces the homepage of, the website of the former House majority leader and soon-to-be contestant on Dancing With the Stars. We have a somewhat paunchy-looking DeLay sporting a creepy, satisfied grin, his hand resting against the waist of his pants. He’s standing behind a woman — his dancing partner, we assume — who is awkwardly slumped over with an exhausted look on her face. And, finally, there’s a woman who glares at DeLay disapprovingly. We’re certain somebody more imaginative could come up with a backstory for the moment this photo is capturing, and we’ll let them do that. But regardless, if you’re Tom DeLay, why on earth would this be your photo of choice?
