Late To The Fiesta

Newt Gingrich, in an attempt to court conservative Hispanics, launches a bilingual news/opinion site. Benen reminds us:

It was [Gingrich] who, in giving a speech to a Republican group in 2007, described bilingual education as teaching "the language of living in a ghetto." He's also mocked the idea of printing government documents in anything but English, and promoted English-only measures. In 1995, Gingrich said bilingualism poses "long-term dangers to the fabric of our nation" and that "allowing bilingualism to continue to grow is very dangerous." And earlier this year, it was Gingrich who blasted Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as a "racist" [...] But now that Republicans are worried about losing the Latino vote for the indefinite future, Gingrich is going to help bring the GOP message to the Latino community? Good luck with that.
