Former Texas Governor Rick Perry got the Texas-sized boot off  last night on Dancing with the Stars.

After a hardy try, 66-year-old Perry was told to go back to Texas because of his pedestrian type routines, which lacked any technical ability whatsoever. After he learned his fate, Perry hugged his partner Emma Slater and whispered in her ear how sorry he was.

As he faced the judges and the audience, he told them the two reasons he decided to participate on the show. One was to highlight the ongoing veterans’ issues and the other was to be able to dance at his daughter’s wedding on October 15th. It looks like he will certainly be able to dance with confidence at his daughter’s wedding.

“Thank you, guys,” he added.

He will return to dance on the season’s finale.

Until then, so long, Rick. Good Texas try!
