When asked to comment on the Spanish version of the National Anthem — a bogus controversy that’s been ginned up by bloggers and talk radio all day long — President Bush responded, “I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English.”

I guess Dubya doesn’t remember all those campaign rallies, both in Texas and elsewhere, when he spoke Spanish to his audiences in an effort to prove that he’s El Hombre.

The lesson? Singing the National Anthem in Spanish, bad. Pandering to voters in Spanish, good.
