Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) was his own biggest critic the day after he turned in a sub-par performance on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

The ex-lawmaker, whose nickname is "The Hammer," was drilled by the judges; partner Cheryl Burke and he only received 18 points for their tango. That score placed them last among the four pairings on Monday night's episode.

He tweeted today:

Well, last night was a disaster. I was so good at dress rehearsal, I must have jinxed myself. Cheryl was fantastic. Thx for the prayers.

DeLay and Burke are currently ranked 12th out of 13 pairings and are in danger of being eliminated from the contest.
