In an interview with CNN, Sarah Palin spoke with a reporter about her feelings on immigrants. And let’s just say she wasn't the most politically correct with her response...
"I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America? A. You better be here legally or you’re out of here. B. When you’re here, let’s speak American.”

My first reaction...



It should be noted that she was speaking plain “English" to the reporter...or is that her version of American speak?

And... if she was speaking American, as a proud Alaskan, was she also speaking Alaskan? A state that contains several indigenous languages? Shouldn’t she know all the languages of her land?
So to all of you Australians, Canadians, and other "so-called" English speakers. Before your next visit to the U.S. perhaps you should take a few language courses in “American.” Gotcha'
Meanwhile, Donald Trump (everyone’s fav!) has said he would consider Palin for a post in his administration if he was elected as the President. Let’s hope she can learn how to speak Washington D.C. before this new stage in her career.

Nothing about Palin makes sense except the sensational need for people to laugh at someone. It's garbage. And she is just playing into the media's hand as a total wacko. @InPlainSight I totally agree. But again, I don't have all the information and everything.
She is one of those political figures that will wrongfully go down in history as defining American politics. It hurts my soul.
@shannonl5 @nicolejb indeed, that's what makes the U.S. So unique, we're a very diverse group
@jibarito that's very true! And important to point out. Because we're made up of so many different colonies and immigrants we really couldn't have an official language at any point in our history. In some areas, the 'official' language would be French or German... not to mention all of the languages spoken here before the mass European migrations.
Exaclty! We have so many languages and cultures here @jibarito!
