• Minnesotans Might Soon Have to Start Speaking English

    Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said recently that his state might want to consider making English its official language

    At a news conference outside the governor's residence, Pawlenty said that as the country becomes more diverse, some people might question which language to use in official documents. He said it might be helpful to clarify that the official language is English.

    Spokesman Bruce Gordon said Pawlenty made the comments when asked about his support for so-called English-only measures, such as one recently approved in the northern suburb of Lino Lakes… The Republican governor, who is testing a possible run for president, didn't elaborate on his position or offer any new proposals.

    Yes, this will certainly clear things right up! I'm sure all the Spanish-speakers will go, "Oh, why didn't you say that before? We will speak English then!"

    Good move, Gov. Pawlenty. Somebody needed to remove those silly barriers to full assimilation.
