You misquoted him. He said that bilingual education is a standard for "people living in a ghetto." That's a big difference from saying Spanish is a "ghetto language."

The exact story:

What do I think of it? I think we need ESL classes to help people assimilate and Gingrich is being unrealistic.

I can't help it that you think 300 pounds isn't fat, Fist. It wasn't meant to be an insult, just stating the facts, bloke.
