Political Spanish

From a recent Slate article by C.  Suellentrop on Thursday’s prez-primary debates:



The best thing Dean does during the debate is refuse to pander to the Albuquerque audience by spewing tortured Spanish, as Lieberman, Edwards, and especially Kucinich do.


Which is to say, the one time Dean spoke Spanish, it was so unforced that Suellentrop didn’t notice he wasn’t speaking English!  I was pleased that someone spoke Spanish without offending my ears.  Give me a minute and I’ll write up some details on the bilingual aspects of the debate.
