  •  The cable networks are very busy (8+ / 0-)

    This morning while waiting to see the Democrats speak out in what apparently was a press conference, I was subjected to at least three viewings of Tucker Carlson dancing with a professional dancer, apparently for some reality show.  Same shot, over and over again.  This is what MSNBC considered important.  And the Dems, well we got to see brief snippets with no audio.  Shoot me now.

        he whipped it off at the start of the number.  He really sucked.

        •  Yes, he was just as nerdy as he always is (5+ / 0-)

          But they loved him on MSNBC.  Thought he handled himself in a "dignified" manner, i.e., he was not making any suggestive moves.  As if he could.

          to take ballroom dancing in childhood (I am not WASP, but I DID take it for two years...and was awful) because it's requirement for squiring debs around.

          My first hsuband attended a fancy prep school tht graduated Sargent Shriver and Nelson ROckefeller.  His Mom insisted he be an escort at the Intl Deb Ball. He and three buddies shwoed up for the first get-together, relaized the girls were either snotty, unattractive or bimboes,  drank beer, then went to a local pool hall instead.

            I went to a private girls boarding school (last 18 months of high school) and they didn't make us dance - but they DID teach us etiquette.  Ugh.

            I dated a Junior National jitterbug champ and champion Irish dancer in college - he taught me all the latin dances, swing, shag and disco - I LOVED it.

              I enjoyed it, but wsn;'t much good at it. We'd liek to take lessons but can barely afford a fast food jaunt these days. SOme day....

              I had nuns.  We had a charm class.  The woman who taught it was practical, when asked how you et libster gracefully, she siad, "You can eat lobster or you can eat gracefully."

              First hsuband was an odd mixture --reared to be  Preppy upper class twit, but paid for hsi black belts by walkign dogs for the bery expensive call girls in hsi building, and ended up forming  an interrracial preppy gang because they all got tired of being beaten up by thte very a;rge, very mean Puerto Rican gang whose territory bordered the SIlk Stockign Distric tof NYC.   Hung out in Cenral Park with hippies.  Equallya t home in suit and tie or  Tee and jeans.   A fencer and an SCA fighter who could charm the birds out of trees.
