El Hipócrita habla por su recto

(AP) A Spanish language version of the national anthem was released Friday by a British music producer, Adam Kidron, who said he wanted to honor America's immigrants.

When the president was asked at a Rose Garden question-and-answer session whether the anthem should be sung in Spanish, he replied: "I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English, and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English."
And yet, in both of the presidential elections that Mr. Bush ran in, he flaunted his fluency in Tex-Mex Spanish to woo the Latino vote away from the Democrats.

We already sing "Happy Birthday" and "Merry Christmas" in other languages, why not start every baseball game with the Spanish version of the national anthem, then at the seventh inning stretch, we can all stand up and sing "sáqueme al partido de béisbol..." (Doesn't it just roll off the tongue?)
