Inmates Running The Asylum

With the Cordoba Initiative attempting to build a thirteen story Muslim learning and prayer center a mere two blocks from the scene of the heinous attacks - by Muslims - in 2001, concerned citizens have been trying to get Congress to investigate the source of Imam Rauf's funding. They have refused. Mayor Mike Bloomberg said such an investigation would "be un-American". And Nancy Pelosi claimed that it was a "zoning issue" that should be decided by New Yorkers.

How ironic ,then, that on Tuesday the House Speaker called for an investigation into the funding sources of...the people opposed to the mosque. Speaking to San Francisco's KCBS radio, here's what the Speaker had to say:

"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. 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."

So Madam Pelosi thinks a Congress that will haul professional baseball players - for example - up to Capitol Hill for questioning regarding steroid use thinks that it has no business finding out who is paying for a Muslim conquest edifice at Ground Zero. Then declares that it should find out where the people opposed to the mosque get their money.

Any questions as to why we have to vote them all out of our House?

How ironic that the liberals of the nation NOW believe in religious freedoms. For years they have hammered the religious right over the Constitution and Freedom of Religion, as well as Church/State issues. Now they are ready to wrap themselves around the Constitution and religious freedom to defend the right to build this mosque and chastise all those in opposition as non-tolerant bigots. These people are so far removed from the hearts and minds of real America. It is truly pathetic watching them in action.

It sure is, EJ, but isn't it great that they have thrown caution to the wind as November speeds toward us? They have become so smug that they have abandoned traditional political protectionism leading up to an election. The downside is the prospect of more payback from the lame duck Congress.
