L.A. Times' McGough uses Sotomayor injury to revive "wise Latina" comments

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

From McGough's June 8 blog post:

I don't know if Sotomayor will be able to sue New York's LaGuardia Airport, where she stumbled. The real consolation for the judge is that this experience increases her empathy quotient. It's debatable, however, whether she should tell the Senate that "I would hope that a wise Latina woman who has had to schlep around on crutches would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who can run down the stairs of the Capitol."
