Color: from the latin word color, coloris. Favor: from the latin word favor, favoris. Notice the lack of an "ou" in there. The French simply polluted the Latin and brought it to England when the Normans took over. Americans have simply gone back to the pure, and good Latin roots. Plus we all know nothing good can come from France. ; )

Hell, Her nomination just got endorsed by Ted Kennedy!
Oh, sh*t, now that's really scary!
Actually, surprisingly, no. Dubya and Teddy Kennedy actually worked together to craft "No Child Left Behind" and Spellings was a key part of that legislation. So, Teddy knows her well, and so it's not surprising that he would endorse her, and likely vote in favor of her nomination.
