Tom DeLay cites the Colbert Report

In a desperate attempt to rebut the allegations raised by Robert Greenwald in his new documentary, The Big Buy, Tom DeLay's team cited Greenwald's appearance on the Colbert Report.

Think Progress has the story:


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”:
"HOLLYWOOD PULLS MICHAEL MOORE ANTICS ON TOM DELAY. COLBERT CRACKS THE STORY ON THE REAL MOTIVATIONS BEHIND THE MOVIE."
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?”
