Bump and freakin' update:
President George W. Bush has long opposed making English the country's national language, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said on Friday,
"The president has never supported making English the national language" Gonzales said
As opposed to:
White House spokesman Tony Snow said Friday that President Bush supports both measures.

Original post:
Whether or Not English Is America's National Language Dominates Senate Debate
My favorite part?
"What the president has said all along is that he wants to make sure that people who become American citizens have a command of the English language," Snow said.
That's pretty funny coming from a guy who speaks like this:
"I aim to be a competitive nation."
"If the Iranians were to have a nuclear weapon they could proliferate."
"And so I'm for medical liability at the federal level."
"I hope you go you know I hope you go back to the ranch and the farm is what I'm about to say."
"The best place for the facts to be done is by somebody who's spending time investigating it."
And here's more.

Well, if that wasn't trivial enough:
Senate Votes Hike in Indecency Fines
With no dissent, the Senate late Thursday approved a bill to raise indecency fines 10-fold to $325,000 per violation for television and radio broadcast stations that air profane or indecent material between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., prime family viewing hours.
The legislation was inspired by the 2004 Superbowl halftime show, during which singer Janet Jackson briefly exposed one breast in what she later called a "wardrobe malfunction."
Because god knows a nipple is more of a threat to our society than torture, murder, corruption and illegal spying.

Which brings us to the most dangerous thing facing America today:
Ban on Gay Marriage Advances in Senate

A Senate panel advanced a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage Thursday as the committee chairman shouted "good riddance" to a Democrat who walked out of the tense session.

"If you want to leave, good riddance," Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) told Sen. Russell D. Feingold (D-Wis.), who refused to participate because, he said, the meeting was not sufficiently open to the public.
Of course there's no need for openness when you are marginalizing 10% of the population. Nyet!
