Tom DeLay Turns to Stephen Colbert for Support

I swear, these people just can't seem to get their facts straight.
I am beginning to think that the total lack of empathy these folks exhibit affects their ability to comprehend obvious satire. And you would also think that after the grilling the Republicans received at the White House Correspondents Dinner, they would have figured out by now that Colbert is NOT a blowhard right-wing pundit - he just plays one on TV. The leading item on the Defend Tom Delay Web Site is Colbert's interview with Robert Greenwald, who produced the movie, "The Big Buy: Tom DeLay's Stolen Congress". For those who have somehow managed to miss the Colbert Report on the Comedy Channel, Colbert plays the part of a flag waving, O'Reilly-esque, faux ultra-conservative political pundit.

Although this looks legit on the surface, I am checking further to make certain this site is not a sophisticated fake. They have certainly done their best to saturate the popular web-search engines with drivel from this pathetic site, and there exists a secure page (HTTPS) for those who might be stupid enough to make a donation to his legal fund. HA, HA, HA - Fat Chance! A cursory examination of the domain registration reveals this:

If I were Colbert, I would cut short that two-week hiatus/vacation and pump this lunacy for all it's worth. Truthiness lives on...
