Yes, but it isn’t that I don’t remember how to spell it and have to recall the song to remember. It is that when I say the spelling in my head it just automatically comes out in the rhythm and tone of the song. That also started happening to me with “bananas” after that damn Gwen Steffani song.

I'm good without the song. :)

I predict Hyde-Smith will win a close race. It feels like all the making of the Moore-Jones races without the serious allegations.

Hyde-Smith has hinted at possessing just enough Mississippi-DNA-racism to probably win.

My grandma had a different funny little song about it. It involved saying "curly letter" for the esses. I don't remember the whole thing though.

M-I crooked letter
Crooked letter I
Crooked Letter
Crooked letter I
Humpback humpback I
Mississippi!

This I had heard. It's not the cadence I recall for spelling the word, but I do remember the mnemonic.

I forgot to add Espy. Mississippi is not as racist as people think. Espy has more to offer all people in Mississippi than Hyde-Smith and I believe people in Mississippi know that. Espy is a step forward. Hyde-Smith is at best same ole same ole.

Some McDaniel supporters are hoping Espy wins because it will give McDaniel another shot in two years.

Ouch. You are correct, of course, but I'm ever the optimist; I hope Espy will win despite the fact that the State's Election Dept. is blatantly and transparently rigged Red.

Racism is like pregnancy. One is or one isn't

Espy was previously one of Mississippi’s Congressmen so he is familiar to the voters in the state.

And what pray tell is the definitive "racism" test? Is there like a little cross that becomes ablaze when the subject of the test pees on it?
