The White House says Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor has broken her ankle after an airport stumble in New York City.
Sotomayor fractured her right ankle Monday morning at New York’s LaGuardia Airport before boarding a shuttle to Washington for an afternoon of meetings with senators.
She’ll keep her six appointments on Capitol Hill Monday despite the injury, which has her walking with crutches, the White House said.
A female Hispanic judge. Who made it all the way from the projects of the Bronx to Princeton and Yale Law. On crutches.
Vote against her now, Republicans. To quote Tom Goldstein: “It’s over.”
Over at Gawker, our former co-blogger Alex Pareene writes: “Now she is on crutches, so she will probably say that crippled Latinas are way wiser than dumb white men, any day now.”
