Achtung, Amerikaners!!Ales klar, Herr Kommissar:
Whether English is America's "national language" or its national "common and unifying language" was a question dominating the Senate immigration debate. The Senate first voted 63-34 to make English the national language after lawmakers who led the effort said it would promote national unity.
But critics argued the move would prevent limited English speakers from getting language assistance required by an executive order enacted under President Clinton. So the Senate also voted 58-39 to make English the nation's "common and unifying language."
"We are trying to make an assimilation statement," said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-Tobacco) ...
Missing from this AP report is another Bush/GOP assimilation statement requiring the adoption of a new National Anthem ... and you won't believe how appropriate the candidate is:
Hello, uh-uh oooh
Vienna calling, na na na na na
Hello, uh-uh oooh,
Vienna Calling, na na na na na
Two, one, zero - der alarm ist rot
Wien in not - cha, cha, cha
Vienna Calling ...
Then again, juxtoposing Bush and the Republican Party's blatant Hitlerism with a hit pop-song by Falco is probably a real big insult to Falco. Had his SUV hadn't lost that fight it had with a double-decker bus in the Dominican Republic back in 1998, he'd still be alive today to tell Americans, "We've got something in common -- 'Rock Me Amadeus' is the worst thing to happen to me just like Bush is the worst thing to happen to you and Iraq."
Javoord-erm, I mean, AY!
