Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor said the following:
"My Latina identity also includes, because of my particularly adventurous taste buds, morcilla, -- pig intestines, patitas de cerdo con garbanzo -- pigs' feet with beans, and la lengua y orejas de cuchifrito, pigs' tongue and ears."
According to Hill reporter Alexander Bolton,
"This has prompted some Republicans to muse privately about whether Sotomayor is suggesting that distinctive Puerto Rican cuisine such as patitas de cerdo con garbanzo -- pigs' tongue and ears -- would somehow, in some small way influence her verdicts from the bench."
Seriously...? Seriously?! I can't even think of anything to say about that.
Thanks for the tip, Schwarzie.
