Sonia, Maria, Lupe, Carmencita - really, what's in a name?
[F]ormer Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee (we dodged a bullet with that one) attempted to stay ahead of the game by releasing an early morning statement to the press which read as follows:So, basically just writing off the Hispanic vote at this point, huh, Big Mike?
"The appointment of Maria Sotomayor for the Supreme Court is the clearest indication yet that President Obama's campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric."
One huge problem there, Mike! Her name isn't Maria. Contrary to popular belief, every Latina in the United States isn't named Maria. We'll forgive you. We're sure you were just watching West Side Story last night in preparation for this statement and got confused.
Yeah, good luck with that.
