Dumb as a bag of hammers

Tom DeLay Supporters

Prepare to have your mind blown. I'm serious. This one will leave you
scratching your head in bewilderment.

We all know that Tom DeLay is still in deep doo-doo over allegations of
corruption and money laundering. Fortunately for Tom, he's still got a
few supporters left who think he's not a lost cause. They've come
together to create a website called DefendDelay.com, the purpose of
which is to raise money for his legal defense. How nice.

Recently DeLay has come under fire from Robert Greenwald, the creator of
Outfoxed, who has just released a new movie called The Big Buy: Tom
DeLay's Stolen Congress. As you might imagine, it's not particularly
complimentary to the Former Hammer. So in an effort to discredit
Greenwald, DefendDelay.com has posted at the top of their home page
<http://www.defenddelay.com/site/c.fuIWLhMTJrE/b.1084881/k.BE08/Home.htm>
a video of Greenwald "crashing and burning" in an interview with...
Stephen Colbert.

Now, most people with half a brain are well aware that Stephen Colbert
isn't really a conservative, he just plays one for laughs on TV. It
seems, however, that most of DeLay's supporters have less than half a
brain and are therefore not familiar with such lofty concepts as
"satire." As you might expect, the interview is full of silly questions
like, "Who hates America more, you or Michael Moore?"

So why on earth have the brilliant minds behind DefendDelay.com posted
this joke interview at the top of their website? There are two possible
options:

1) They actually believe that this is a real interview. If they don't
know who Stephen Colbert is, they might just have fallen for his
schtick. Which would not only make them extremely dumb, but would also
demonstrate just how good Colbert's satire is. But perhaps a more
reasonable explanation is:

2) They know it's not real, but they think that anyone who wants to
donate to Tom DeLay must be an utter moron. In this scenario, the
creators of DefendDelay.com know that the Colbert Report is a comedy
show, but they also know that people who are willing to cough up ten
bucks for DeLay's defense fund will probably watch the interview and
think that Colbert is a real conservative "nailing" Greenwald.

Either way, there's some serious idiocy going on here.
