Which Insult Is Unlike the Others?

The WaPo editorializes:

NEW YORK radio host Don Imus is an equal-opportunity insulter. He called noted African American journalist Gwen Ifill a “cleaning lady.” He called a columnist at the New York Times a “quota hire.” He’s labeled Vice President Cheney a “war criminal.” But none of those comments has landed Mr. Imus in as much hot water as the offensive, racist and sexist remarks he made last week about the women’s basketball team from Rutgers University.

How does calling Cheney a war criminal enter into this discussion about racism?
