Tom DeLay and all Those Uppity Blacks in Congress

I won't offer one word of excuse for what Cynthia McKinney did. She was wrong. She should never have hit a police officer. I don't care if he called her every vile racist name in the book. She put herself in the position of going from victim to offender in one swift punch. I have no sympathy for her at all. Not one little bit. I hold her to that same high standard that I would hold any other elected member of congress. No exceptions.

All that aside. I will also say that I believe racism is rampant in the halls of the capitol. I'm just not so certain it is the Capitol Hill police that are the racists. Take this quote from Tom DeLay found in just about every media source printing the story. I found it in
USA Today. It can also be found in The Washington Post.
"Cynthia McKinney is a racist," Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, said on Fox News Channel's Fox and Friends, a day after abandoning his re-election bid under a cloud of ethics charges. "She has a long history of racism. Everything is racism with her. This is incredible arrogance that sometimes hits these members of Congress, but especially Cynthia McKinney."
Did you catch that? Read it again - especially the part that starts with, "This is incredible arrogance that sometimes hits these members of Congress...". What members would these members be, Tom? Would these be the women members, the white male contingency, the under 40 crowd or maybe, just maybe these arrogant members of congress are the blacks? What do you say, Tom? Is that what you meant by these members?

What about the white members, Tom? I mean sheesh, can you imagine a white man being arrogant? Can you Tom? I know it's difficult to imagine anyone being arrogant about something they are entitled to in the first place. I guess once these blacks make it to congress it just goes to their heads, isn't that right, Tom? The only "big house" they belong in is one with bars, isn't that right Tom?

Come on Tom. You know you want to say it. The truth really does set you free, Tom. Go ahead. Let it all out. Black's don't belong in congress and when they get there with their nappy hair in corn rows and their arrogant attitudes it just serves them right when they get into trouble. I mean, afterall, we can't expect much from them since they are inferior to the great white race, isn't that right Tom?

So, now, the man who is under indictment for arrogantly assuming that rules and laws were not meant for him, who has been admonished by the ethics committee three times for arrogantly acting outside the rules of congress and who was arrogant enough to run a primary race just to raise money for his campaign so he can use it for his legal defense - this man is calling people of a different race arrogant. There's no denying that Tom DeLay is a racist. It's all right there in black and white.

Isn't that right, Tom?
