Read This: The Fat Lady Sang Edition
Good afternoon, everyone. As you may have heard, Tom DeLay has bowed out of "Dancing With the Stars" (three weeks in, he's got two -- count 'em, two! -- broken feet, which sounds horrible . . . but we guess that's what one can expect after taking on a professional dancer's exercise routine at age 62).
As Lisa de Moraes tells it, we were probably spared. On Tuesday's show, the former House majority leader ignored the advice of his doctor so he could samba to War's "Why Can't We Be Friends?" while dressed like a disco Uncle Sam. But his injuries took a toll, and DeLay got the second worst score of the night.
That wasn't terribly unusual, though. De Moraes reminds us what happened during the show's first week of competition:
DeLay's rump cost him points.
He wiggled it.
In front of the camera.
Dressed in granny pants.
To the Troggs' "Wild Thing."
It was horrible (sob).
While you're washing that image off your brain, here's what else today's Style section has to offer: Blake Gopnik breaks down the art that the the Obamas have chosen for the White House. Steve Harvey shills for layaway at the Greenbelt K-mart. Hilary Mantel gets the Man Booker prize. And as for Jude Law's Broadway turn as "Hamlet," take it or leave it.
