Still whippin' votes

No one is better at whipping votes in the US House than Tom DeLay. Somehow I doubt he can be as good at Dancing with the Stars:

However, that is exactly what the former Republican congressman nicknamed "The Hammer" is doing in retirement according to a letter he sent to supporters today. This time he has his sights set on country music singer Sara Evans' campaign to best the competition on ABC's hit show, "Dancing with the Stars."

DeLay's letter urges his supporters to watch and vote for Evans, who performed at the 2004 Republican National Convention and has a history of supporting Republican candidates. "Sara Evans has been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and represents good American values in the media...we have always been able to count on Sara for her support of the things we all believe in. Let's show Sara that same support," writes DeLay.

This is probably one of the reasons why lots of folks didn't like Delay: he politicized everything. On the other hand, politicizing everything may have been one of the reasons for his success.
