Did they run out of actual celebrities to use this season? 

You can file this under, what the hell? You heard that right, Rick Perry will be taking his dancing 'skills' to the dance competition show on ABC. The season is set to premiere on September 12th. I have to imagine Rick Perry will be doing a Texas two-step at some point during the season.

This season also features rapper Vanilla Ice, NFL star Calvin Johnson and Olympian Ryan Lochte. I am not a 'Dancing with the Stars' fan, but I am unable to find another politician that has been on the show. Could this be the start of a trend? Got to keep an eye on that one.
