LAS VEGAS – Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle told dozens of Hispanic high school students last week that "some of you look a little more Asian to me," inducing gasps from the crowd and marking the latest eyebrow-raising remark she has uttered on the campaign trail.
Angle, a Republican in a close contest against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, met Friday with the group at a Las Vegas high school after students expressed anger with her campaign's anti-illegal immigrant message.

"What we know, what we know about ourselves is that we are a melting pot in this country. My grandchildren are evidence of that. I'm evidence of that. I've been called the first Asian legislator in our Nevada State Assembly."
She also said this. I think that, once again, some one's words are taken out of context. I understand the "melting pot". I believe, as she stated, that we shouldn't be able to discern some one's ethnic make-up after a while. We all melt into one culture in America. I got it. What is so difficult about it?

Good Lord- SA or HR.....what a choice. Lots of folks are an amalgamation of genetics. SA should just close her trap for the next 2 weeks.
