      Well, I think calling her racist is a bit too strong. Whoever thought up
      that campaign advert was obviously ignorant and stupid.

      I doubt she's racist against Slavs; her adopted son is from Belarus.

      And one of the third-party candidates is Donna Ivanovich, but I don't see
      her throwing a fit. And she's in the Constitution Party, which is the
      party that makes right-wing Republicans seem like Marxist socialists.

      Both Hanaway and Carnahan (the daughter of Mel Carnahan, who WON the
      Senate race against John Ashcroft--even after Mell died before the
      election!) are similar backgrounds and platforms, so I'm sure both sides
      are scraping to find some differences to highlight between the two.

      I know how elections go in Eastern Europe: a damn sight better than here
      the past few years. :)

        Greg,

        Now you are adding political comments on this list? After you banned a couple of members who did the same??????? I must voice my concern about this, what is good for the goose, is good for the gander. Perhaps you should eliminate yourself from this list for the same infraction.

          Steady on, John; me thinks you're getting a tad too sensitive. The topic
          of the posts were about perceived racism of someone about Eastern
          Europeans brought up in a political race. I was merely pointing about the
          charge of "racism" seemed a stretch considering the fact the woman adopted
          a child from Belarus. I didn't comment on the political aspect of the
          race. I don't live in Missouri; I don't care.

          It wasn't a 'political post'. The focus wasn't politics; it was the charge
          of racism. I don't understand your criticism.
