Poynter's Al Tompkins has this item:

Interesting Twist

Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, points out:

Several senators who opposed their chamber's immigration bill and favored giving special protections to the English language have Web sites in -- of all the darn languages -- Spanish!

* Sen. John Cornyn, Texas
* Sen. Lamar Alexander, Tennessee
* Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona


I, of course, would note that of those three sites, only Sen. Kyl uses permanent cookies.
