Friday Afternoon Open Thread: The Americano

Newt Gingrich's new site devoted to providing US Hispanics with a bilingual news source with a different take.
"Hispanic Heritage is as rich today in the United States, as it was back in the 1850s when the first bilingual newspapers were printed," states Newt Gingrich. "We think The Americano will provide a much needed traditional values viewpoint that will honor that heritage."
The big question? Was the site created with a 2012 run in mind? What say you, FHQ readers?

Newt has some different ideas on the immigration issue, but he still wants to make English the only language with subsidies for English-only education. He will have more guest workers, but everyone here illegally will need to go back to their country of origin to apply for their permit. It is definitely a ploy for 2012, but I don't think it will work with the Hispanic voter.

I've heard that The Americano will devote half its content to discussing what a racist Justice Sotomayor is.

And here I was contemplating posting a clip from the SNL Thursday night show last night for some Friday fun. But I think Jack just topped it with that one.

Kudos, my friend. Kudos.
