English only

The Senate, clearly lacking more constructive things to do:

voted on Thursday to designate English as the national language. In a charged debate, Republican backers of the proposal, which was added to the Senate's immigration measure on a 63-to-34 vote, said that it was equivalent to establishing a formal national anthem or motto and that it would simply affirm the pre-eminence of English without overturning laws or rules on bilingualism.

You know, since they have now declared the United States an English-speaking country, maybe next they can pass a resolution that the U.S. is a heterosexual country. That ought to take care of that whole gay marriage issue once and for all.
