And The Racist Asshole Of The Month Award Goes To...

....that bastion of morality Tom Delay. Take a look at what he had to say about Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. What an asshole.

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who on Tuesday abandoned his re-election bid under a cloud of ethics charges, weighed in on Wednesday, saying McKinney "is a racist."

"She has a long history of racism," DeLay, R-Texas, said on Fox News channel. "Everything is racism with her. This is incredible arrogance that sometimes hits these members of Congress, but especially Cynthia McKinney." -excerpt from an Associated Press article by Mark Sherman


Who the hell is he to comment on anyone else's behavior?

Republicans have been foaming at the mouth at this opportunity to tear down an influential Black woman. They've even stooped so low as to make derisive, and might I add racist, comments about her more natural hairstyle as if they had nothing but praise for her signature braids. I'm sure not one of those White Congressmen who have been on The Hill a while doesn't expect the Capitol Police to recognize them as they pass through the doors. They would be just as indignant as McKinney at not being recognized after years of service. It's been noted over and over that many Congresspersons do not wear their Congressional pins to identify themselves. What makes McKinney different? Oh yeah, that's right, she's Black and female. The good ol' boys couldn't let her get away with all that uppityness. How dare she carry herself with the dignity and self respect that should come with having a seat in Congress?

Piig, I agree with you on all but one point...this is just the 7th of April and the month is young. I am sure that there will be more to be considered for the "award." I am thinking that by the 30th, we will have to hold a "run off."

Unfortunately, B. Jane, I think you're right. Racists are like cockroaches - they crawl out of the woodwork in even the best of places.

Piig, ironic that you made the association with cockroaches. DeLay has a degree in biology and prior to entering politics was a friggen pest exterminator. LOLOLOL Perhaps he learned his tactics from associations with the creepy-crawly kind. hehehehe
