Had Roman-style vomitoriums actually ever existed, this video -- snippets of Tom DeLay dancing with Cheryl Burke for Dancing With the Stars -- might have been an ideal addition: certain to send you fleeing to talk to your Uncle Ralph on the big white telephone.

As it is, even Bill O'Reilly wonders if this isn't "the worst thing ever". And says it puts him in a mood for classical music. Then, of course, he calls him a "patriot" for having the courage to do this.

Actually, it reminds me of the old joke about the last words of the moronic redneck: "Hey everbody, watch thee-yis!"

The reaction of CNN anchor Kiran Chetry was actually about right: "It reminds you of your uncle who's had a little too much to drink at a wedding or something, doesn't it?"

We apologize in advance to our readers for their nausea.
