It's minority pandering time!

Only a week to go, so now we get to watch the candidates speak broken Spanish and hope the effort alone pays off. It's kind of pathetic, in a way.

Bush actually speaks pretty good Spanish- he does not need a translator.

Reminds me of the Democratic primary debate where each candidate made a statement in Spanish.

Correct.
And at the convention while Bush spoke Spanish the hall erupted in-

VIVA BUSH,
VIVA BUSH!!

Anyone who speaks Spanish can do something I can't do.

Kerry speaks French fluently as well. Although, Jon Stewart had a great thing about this last night showing Bush and Kerry speaking Spanish, French and Hebrew to different constituents.

It's a damn shame we can't say the same for his English skills.
