ENTER BUSH ... simon ... according to Barrio Boing Boing, "... in his book American Dynasty, Kevin Phillips notes that during Bush's first presidential campaign, he would often sing the national anthem in Spanish. From pg. 142: 'When visiting cities like Chicago, Milwaukee, or Philadelphia, in pivotal states, he would drop in at Hispanic festivals and parties, sometimes joining in singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' in Spanish, sometimes partying with a 'Viva Bush' mariachi band flown in from Texas.'"

Hay ... que Bush ...

ENTER ARROZ ... On NPR's "Mixed Signals" blog, Mara Liason writes,
"[I]n fact, the U.S. government appears to be promoting a number of foreign language versions of the national anthem. The State Department Web site posts four Spanish versions and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says she's heard rap, country and classical versions. On CBS' Face the Nation (PDF transcript), she says the 'individualization of the American national anthem is quite under way.' "But Condi, the president wants the anthem sung in English! Talk about mixed signals."
