That 'Latina Woman'


Okay, here we go.

The exhibit above demonstrates the right-wing entering the media bloodstream (courtesy of CNN.) Pairing an almost eight-year-old quote with this photo fished from the file, you see how the media, channeling Gingrich and Limbaugh, can suggest Sotomayor as someone angry, bitter -- even "racist." (You can also see how this works just by consuming the image and the first two words of the headline, which is as far as some people get.)

And then, look how much assistance you can offer with just a "may," a "could" and a "but."
