No One Minds If Tom DeLay Does Another Celebrity Reality Thing Right?

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Histrionic criminal Tom DeLay is not quite ready to leave you and your television alone already! Since the FCC criminalized his hip gyrations on Dance, Star, Dance, he will now join Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. He will play an “Expert”—for serious—to whom contestants will get to pose questions during their “lifelines.” At least it sounds like there will be fewer sequins involved this time around, so there’s that… [TV Newser]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Hawaiiexpat

    My lifeline question to “expert” Tom Delay…..correctly spell ASSHAT.

  • Terry

    I thought old Tom would take a cushy job as a lobbyist for pharmaceutical companies, make a fortune, and generally stay out of the news. What went wrong?

  • ManchuCandidate

    So “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” has questions on Corruption, Roaches and Douchebaggery?

  • pampl

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen “Who Wants..” but I don’t think they ask questions about how to launder money?

  • PsycGirl

    Probably he’s there to help with questions about code words: New York liberal = Jew, that sort of thing.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    As long he’s not shaking his ass at the camera, but then, flapping his gums is probably worse.

  • FMA

    So it’s been established that DeLay will do anything for money.
    Tell us something we didn’t know.

  • JamesMichaelCurley

    [re=444134]Terry[/re]: Still got those money laundering charges hanging out in Ronnie Earle’s “To Do” basket.

  • Noodle Salad

    “OK, Mr. Delay, for $500 the question is, in the event that a woman suffers from a serious heart attack, leaving them brain-dead, kept alive only by a machine for years, who should be allowed to determine her fate? A) A Republican house majority leader B) Obama’s death panels C) Her spouse D) A medium channeling the spirit of Ronald Reagan.”

  • bureaucrap

    Tom Delay is a walking argument in support of Death Panels.

  • JMP

    Can’t he join Blago on Celebrity Apprentice: Corrupt Pols Edition? Just think of all the money getting embezzled out of Trump’s empire…

  • George Will&#39

    For the love of all that is good in the world of dance, would someone please Blingee that photo!!

  • Mr Blifil

    The Mariana Islands are

    A) A swank business resort

    B) A racy playpen for evangelical conservatives and Republicans to get they freak on with underage hotties

    C) A Child Labor cesspool

    D) Phone Jack Abramoff

  • Terry


    Ronnie Earl is a tenacious fellow, too.

  • rocktonsammy

    As long as its ‘Celebrity Drop the Soap in the Prison Shower.’

  • zhubajie

    I keep expecting him to start a Health and Wealth mega-ministry.

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=444145]Noodle Salad[/re]: Oh oh, D) Ronald Reagan’s Corpse, once they’ve rinsed off Jonah Goldberg’s twinkie-induced semen.

  • UnattendedConsequence

    There is nothing – nothing – that we mercuns will not pay to see.

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=444158]zhubajie[/re]: The Bugman would be an excellent addition to that all-star line-up of republican flunkies currently doing the motivational speaking rounds. Add Bernie Kerik, and whatever you can dream, you can do.

  • norbizness

    The last time I called Tom DeLay “dumber than a sack of wet, disoriented mice,” I was sued by the wet mice.

  • Oldskool

    When no one asks him a question, because they’re trying to win money, what will he do?
    I’d like to see him prance around in a tutu before and after commercials. You know he’d be up for it.

  • Rascalcat

    The only thing I would rather see than Tom Delay pointing in my direction and mouthing “Wild Thang” is Caribou Barbie competing for the love and affection de jour of one Bret Michaels

    Alt Text: “YOU! I WANNA TAKE YOU TO A GAY BAR!!!1!”

  • Seanyboy

    … pretty sure you have to have taken a queer cinema class in college to get the “Dance, Girl, Dance” reference. And, since 98.5% of Wonkette readers have, well played!
