What an ass

Former GA congressman Newt Gingrich.
"The American people believe English should be the official language of the government. ... We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto," Gingrich said to cheers from the crowd of more than 100.

And this guy is considering getting into the 2008 presidential contest. The GOP just doesn't get it. Demographic trends point to Hispanic voters -- you know, Spanish speakers -- will be the dominant minority group in the US in the next decade. They haven't learned the lesson from California when the state GOP passed legislation denying all kinds of benefits to immigrants. California has been SOLIDLY Democratic ever since.
