DeLay knows exactly what he's doing. Recall the fundraising letter that hit the mailbox the same week he announced his resignation. Why do you think the video still remains on the site after we've all thrown our lampoons at it?
Tom DeLay and his fundraising apparatchiks studied P.T. Barnum extensively. They get the joke.
