Josh Marshall's Talking Points Memo picked up conservatives going nuts over Sonia Sotomayor's eating habits:

“A conservative source really did draw a connection between Sonia Sotomayor's gastronomical preferences — traditional Puerto Rican cuisine — and her allegedly “activist” jurisprudence.”

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.
