I frequently get the feeling that residents of the Greater DC area are the only people who recognize Members of Congress on the street. I mean, do most people know what their own Representative looks like, let alone someone else’s? But without trotting out that old “Hollywood for Ugly People” canard, I think it’s fair to say that Washington celebrities are not everyone else’s celebrities.
Which is why it tickles me to no end when those celebrity worlds collide: Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) is going to be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. Oh yeah, baby. (He’s photo/bio number 16 in that gallery.)
