What George Will's World Looks Like

George Will writes,
Arizonans should not be judged disdainfully and from a distance by people whose closest contacts with Hispanics are with fine men and women who trim their lawns and put plates in front of them at restaurants, not with illegal immigrants passing through their back yards at 3 a.m.
Seriously - that's Will's personal perception of the integration of Hispanic people into American life, or how he imagines life to be for anybody who questions the Arizona legislation? What does he imagine that Justice Sotomayor was hired to do at the Supreme Court building?

  1. I read somebody trying to defend Will by arguing that he was trying to insult liberals by suggesting that it was their experience to only encounter Hispanics in service roles. But I can't see it. He appears to live in a lily white world and apparently can't see past its perimeter to understand that a lot of the liberals he likes to sneer at do not share it.

    A lot of people have now posted on this one, but for what it's worth yours was the earliest post I saw.
