Speak English!

U.S.
Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, feels your pain. (Or is it xenophobia?) Under
his proposed English Language Unity Act, the federal government would
be required to conduct all its affairs in English.

“This
will obligate the federal government to preserve, protect, and enhance
the role of the English language within our government,” said Inhofe.

The measure’s House author is Iowa Republican Steve King, which, we
suppose, makes this bill all about King’s English.

Never
mind that English is already the United States’ de facto language.
Uh-oh! What’s Inhofe’s policy on foreign language phrases like "de facto" in an
American publication?
