Palin, commenting on Arizona’s controversial immigration law, had remarked that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) “has the cojones [testicles] that our president does not have.”
Cornyn tweeted, “I didn’t know Gov. Palin was bilingual!”

Palin went on to say, in English, “We’re very, very thankful that they [Brewer and other governors] are willing to go toe-to-toe and go all the way to the Supreme Court if need be and get this thing resolved.”
