I wish to be clear up front. This is NOT a CMR parody piece. This is real. Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate those opposed to building a mosque at ground zero.

Speaking on San Francisco’s KCBS radio, Pelosi said:

“There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said. “How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.”

Apparently the 70% of the American people who oppose the mosque are guilty of forcing Nancy off message. For that crime, they must be investigated.

May I also suggest, Madame Speaker, that one of the primary reasons that two of the first three questions in your interview were about “a zoning issue in New York City” is becuase the President of the United States and the leader of your party decided to comment on “a zoning issue in New York City.” And by making these comments in opposition to a large majority of Americans, people care about it.

So if you wish to investigate anyone, Madame Speaker, why not start at the top?

This particular issue has turned out to be one of those giant blue bug lights. Democrats just can’t stay away and are burning themselves in the process.
