Anything for a Vote

Gosh, searching for hypocrisy on Capitol Hill is like looking for a logical fallacy in an Ann Coulter book: child's play.

Raw Story is reporting on an article in Roll Call about how a bunch of Republican Senators who have supported anti-immigrant measures such as makingEnglish the offical language of the United States have bilingual websites.
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who wrote a resolution on the national anthem being sung in English, has a section of his site titled, "El Senador Alexander." Senators Wayne Allard (R-CO) and Jim DeMint (R-SC), both strong proponents of a 'get tough' immigration policy, also have their sites in both English and Spanish.
Oops. These guys pander to American nativists to capture the anti-immigrant vote, but they don't want to alienate Spanish-speaking voters, either. Are they counting on a wellspring of self-hating Hispanics? ¡Que loco!
