Bringing "The Hammer" down on McKinney

The former House Majority Leader weighs in on the McKinney kerfuffle:

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."

Not sure who exactly Tom means by "these members," or for that matter how he would characterize McKinney's "long history of racism." Maybe he's referring to McKinney's being a Marxist, which is how mkchicago (hyperbolically?) characterized her recently. Perhaps he'd care to elaborate on how her voting record advocates a classless society where workers collectively own the means of production.
