The only thing stoopider than the perennial efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban American flag burning are the perenial efforts to make English the official language. As opposed to, say, Farsi or Klingon.
That's what the Senate did (again) last week in passing an amendment to the immigration "reform" bill sponsored by Sen. James Inhofe, N-Okla. (That's Neanderthal-Oklahoma), declaring English to be the U.S.'s "national language" and calling for a government role in "preserving and enhancing" the place of English.
E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post takes a pretty good swipe at the whole blatantly racist affair here.
