My friend and blogging colleague J has already mentioned the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars and the unfortunate inclusion of Tom DeLay in the cast.
Interestingly enough, this is not DeLay's first time at the rodeo, so to speak. In 2006 he attempted to mobilize his followers against the surprisingly popular Jerry Springer, whose (to me) unexpected flair for self-deprecatory humor kept him in the contest far longer than his actual dancing skills should have.
In any event, I suspect I will only have to avoid the show for one week. Fortunately there is no way to vote against a participant or I'd have to spend my work hours writing an automatic voting program.
