Memo to the folks behind Tom DeLay's legal defense fund: Stephen Colbert is a comedian. And when he sits down with Robert Greenwald, the producer of "The Big Buy: Tom DeLay's Stolen Congress," and asks things like, "Who hates America more, you or Michael Moore?" -- well, that's what we call "satire," and it probably isn't the best fodder for the fundraising e-mail you just sent to a bunch of your supporters.
