No Speakie Common Logic

Tim Funk in the Charlotte Observer zings senators Dick Burr (R-NC) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) for political cortortionism. Both senators voted for declaring English the national language and for Sen. James Inhofe's amendment to the Senate immigration bill that "nobody will have the right to ask the federal government to provide services or materials in any language other than English."

But both senators have features on their official Senate websites that allow visitors to choose options "En Espanol." There one can presumably read all about how Republicans are playing on fears of illegal immigrants.
