Conservative Tongues Wagging, Pig Ears Pricked Over Supreme Court Justice Nominee's Food Preferences -- Or Why Sonia Sotomayor Now Has the Full Support of Our Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Restaurant Critic

Here is the passage from "the disturbing" Sotomayor speech from a few years ago:
*"My Latina identity also includes, because of my particularly adventurous taste buds, morcilla ([blood sausage with] pig intestines), patitas de cerdo con garbanzo (pigs' feet with beans), and la lengua y orejas de cuchifrito (pigs' tongue and ears)."
She's got my vote.
