DeLay's Sad Legal Team Doesn't Get Satire - They're Publicizing Stephen Colbert in Email Blasts
Tom DeLay's legal defense fund is using an interview between Stephen Colbert and Robert Greenwald, creator of "The Big Guy: Tom DeLay's Stolen Congress" to discredit the film and pay for DeLay's legal bills. They don't get satire! This is from Think Progress:
A good sign that Tom DeLay doesn't have the facts on his side: the top source for his latest defense against his critics is Stephen Colbert.This is pathetic (and sad) on so many levels...and deliciously funny.
This morning, DeLay's legal defense fund sent out a mass email criticizing the movie "The Big Buy: Tom DeLay's Stolen Congress," by "Outfoxed" creator Robert Greenwald.
The email features a "one-pager on the truth behind Liberal Hollywood's the Big Buy," and the lead item is Colbert's interview with Greenwald on Comedy Central (where Colbert plays a faux-conservative, O'Reilly-esque character). The headline of the "fact sheet":
DeLay thinks Colbert is so persuasive, he's now featuring the full video of the interview at the top of the legal fund's website. And why not? According to the email, Greenwald "crashed and burned" under the pressure of Colbert's hard-hitting questions, like "Who hates America more, you or Michael Moore?"
Apparently the people at DeLay's legal fund think that Colbert is actually a conservative. Or maybe they're just that desperate for supporters.
