Irony Impaired

Who says disgraced House Minority Whip Tom "The Hammer" Delay doesn't have a sense of humour? Well, actually...

Apparently Tommy D. is not hip to Steven Colbert's satirical schtik on the "Colbert Report" (both T's are silent!) in which he paradies a bombastic Bill O'Reilly-esque TV pundit. Uh, Tom, there was this obscure little ballsalicious bitchslap of Dubya at the White House Corros Dinner last month that attracted a bit of notice...

Delay's legal defense fund has sent out a fund raising letter touting Colbert's "takedown" of Robert Greenwald, creator of the movie "The Big Buy: Tom DeLay’s Stolen Congress."

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?" ThinkProgress reports.

"You're an entrepreneur, and I honour that, of course the product you're pushing is the destruction of America. Good luck with that!"

Check out the video at the top of the DefendDeLay website!
