Well, at least Alex Sink (D CAND, Florida-13) wasn’t talking about “hewers of wood…”

…or “bearers of water:”

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said immigration reform was important at a Tuesday debate because, without it, it would be difficult for employers to find people to clean hotel rooms and do landscaping.

“Immigration reform is important in our country,” she said. “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.”

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: half the readers of RedState would call me a pro-amnesty squish when it comes to immigration issues. But I have a better reason for that stance than Hey, I want faster towel service from the beachfront cabana. Apparently, Alex Sink does not – and she’s remarkably unconscious of the way she presents her opinions, too.

And let us not even start to discuss where Alex Sink apparently places Latinos and Asians in her vision of society, if only because after a while you have to develop a sort of weary contemptuous resignation at the way that liberal politicians simply don’t listen to their own rhetoric…
