Today's wingnut talking point

Actual Washington Times headline:

Sotomayor reversed 60% by high court
Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents ...
Moreover, said the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, "Of those three rulings, fully 100% were reversed." Added Moon: "Yeah I got nothin'."
"Her high reversal rate alone should be enough for us to pause and take a good look at her record. Frankly, it is the Senates [sic] duty to do so," said Wendy Wright, president of Concern Trolls for America.
Sadly, three out of 380 is less than one percent.

eta: I wouldn't have imagined that the Times's idiocy needed any additional explication, but Nate Silver provides it anyway.
