Question of the Day
The best way to learn English is to jettison Spanish-language media, said California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“You’ve got to turn off the Spanish television set,” the Austrian-born Republican told 300 members of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists on Wednesday night.
“It’s that simple. You”ve got to learn English,” said Mr. Schwarzenegger, whose native language is German. “I know this sounds odd and this is the politically incorrect thing to say and I”m going to get myself in trouble. But I know that when I came to this country, I very rarely spoke German to anyone.”
The governor said tutoring and after-school programs are essential but emphasized that immigrants should avoid a Spanish-only life and learn English.
“They’re busy working. They don’t have time to,” countered Pilar Marrero of the Spanish-language newspaper La Opinion.
Folks in Texas have a few notions about welcoming Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on her campaign stop there today.
Dick Collins, founder of the Dallas-based anti-Hillary “educational” group Stop Her Now, will fly a giant aerial banner over downtown Dallas this afternoon. The New York Democrat’s plane is due to stop and refuel sometime during that period.
“We want to make sure Senator Clinton receives a proper Texas welcome,” Mr. Collins said. “Our mission is to follow Hillary across the country, exposing her liberal ideology. Senator Clinton makes this easy when she drops into our back yard.”
The banner is rumored to say something along the lines of “rescue America from the radical ideas of Hillary.” The group has a substantial Web site, a blog, MySpace and Facebook pages and its own YouTube channel.
“Our Facebook group boasts more members than Senator Mike Gravel, Senator Chris Dodd, Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee, Representative Tom Tancredo, and Representative Duncan Hunter. We have become the most interactive presidential education Web site on the Internet,” Mr. Collins said.
CNN has embraced YouTube and Google with a trusting flourish.
“This is the future,” CNN executives said yesterday as they revealed plans to allow everyday voters to get all Wolf Blitzer-y and submit debate questions via YouTube, suggesting that submissions be “compelling, personal and relevant.” And no longer than 30 seconds.
