I Would Hope That A Wise Latina Woman Would Have Learned to Walk

... and other helpful ditties for the Republican Party to use as spin. That's because, in the latest shocking development in the appointment of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, she broke her ankle this morning (!):
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. The judge has kept up a busy schedule in Washington as the White House presses for her quick confirmation. She even stopped at the White House before heading to the hospital for an x-ray.
So, without further ado, here are the ways Republicans can spin this to their advantage:
  • Her court decisions are as clumsy as her walking style.
  • She's trying to make us feel empathetic!
  • Her fractured ankle represents the way her appointment is fracturing the country.
  • Her legal decisions don't have a leg to stand on.
  • She fracture her right ankle. Like her court decisions, she favors the left.
  • Her favoritism of LaGuardia Airport over JFK Airport is reverse racism.
  • She is now walking on crutches? Her whole life, she has gotten everywhere she got because of crutches!
  • She stopped at the White House before the x-ray? What will happen in future emergencies? Will she check with Obama before deciding?
  • Even the hospital didn't have her stay, and we want to give her a lifetime position?
  • Here is a woman who won't abort her meeting schedule but is fine with woman aborting their babies. Disgusting.
  • She takes care of the fracture on a small bone. No word on worrying about the bigger bones. This is out and out favoritism.
Use these lines, Republicans. You can trip up her nomination yet.
