The Obama-Polish connection

By Matthew Day in Warsaw Last Updated: 2:30PM GMT 18 Nov 2008

"Have you heard that Obama may have a Polish connection? His grandfather ate a Polish missionary."

Writing in his blog, Mr Czarnecki, an MEP, quoted the Polish foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, as saying the above.
In an episode that could potentially strain relations between Warsaw and Washington, Radek Sikorski, an Oxford-educated politician who has lived in the US, was reported to have made the jibe by an opposition politician, Ryszard Czarnecki.
A spokesman for the Polish foreign office conceded that Mr Sikorski had made the controversial comment, but denied that the foreign minister had intended to insult Mr Obama, whose father was Kenyan.
"Mr Sikorski did not tell a racist joke," said Piotr Paszkowski, the spokesman. "He was only giving an example of the unpalatable and racist 'jokes' that surround President Elect Obama." Source
