The Senate voted Thursday to make English the national language of the United States. Sort of.
Moments after the 63-34 vote, it decided to call the mother tongue a "common and unifying language."
Democrats...said the proposal would curtail rights established by an executive order President Clinton issued to extend language assistance to individuals not proficient in English.
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada went further:
"I really believe this amendment is racist. I think it's directed basically to people who speak Spanish."
Excuse me, Senator.
Shouldn't that be "at people who speak Spanish"?
