Just when it seems nobody can make the controversy any more divisive or offensive, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has popped up to demand a taxpayer-funded congressional investigation to discover who might be funding the opposition to the Ground Zero mosque.
That's right: Nancy assumes that nobody could oppose the mosque on principle or because the wounds of 9/11 are still raw. Some mysterious somebody must be paying people to be against the project, presumably to make mosque-loving Democrats look bad.
Meanwhile, the imam behind the Cordoba House project still refuses to divulge the funding sources for the $100 million dollar mega-mosque, leading to speculation that the money may be coming from Saudi Arabian backers of "Wahabi" mosques and schools which are vehemently anti-Western.
The most disturbing part of all this is Nancy Pelosi's apparent belief that no one could or would speak up on behalf of America unless they were being bribed.
But then again, after so many years, it's hard for her not to think like a Democrat.
