Senator Larry Craig, Senator from Idaho, says he is ready to do some fancy footwork on next year's "Dancing With The Stars".
"They said anyone could enter", Craig told me. "If they'll allow me to dance with a male partner. I think we have a fair chance of winning.
"I've got a terrific partner I met at a stall in Spokane, Washington last year, one of the guys from that group that sang "Macho Man", I can't remember their name. It'll come back to me. Anyway I'm all set to begin with him as my partner.
"Oh yeah, the guy I'm talking to now was once in the group, 'The Village People'. I think that's what they called themselves. Can't remember now if he was the Indian or the cop, but he can sure dance.
"I just saw Hillary on TV and it reminded me of her book about the village idiot or something, never read it, but that helped me remember "Village People".
When I contacted a rep from "Dancing With The Stars", he would not say yes or no, only "We're looking into it, trying to get it all straight before making any final decisions."
At last report, Craig's partner from the Village people says he may not be able to come after all. "I may be considered a professional dancer."
This hasn't discouraged Senator Craig in the least. "I'll have to check with some of my old summer interns that once served under me."
Of course, this is Hollywood so if Senator Craig does NOT get a male partner, the show could well be Boycotted.
