I’m beginning to think Jonah Goldberg will have to add a new chapter or two to the next edition of his brilliant Liberal Fascism, just to cover Nancy Pelosi. In the wake of increasing opposition to the construction of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero, La Nancita has suggested that opponents should be placed under federal investigation!
“The freedom of religion is a Constitutional right. Where a place of worship is located is a local decision.
“I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that ‘We agree with the ADL that there is a need for transparency about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center. At the same time, we should also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction of the center.’
Wait a gosh-darned minute, here! Critics of the mosque are getting funded? Where’s my check? Jeez…
And does that mean you want to investigate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to find out who’s funding him, Madame Speaker of the House?
Nothing like threatening a federal investigation of those making use of their right to free speech to reveal your inner statist, eh, Nancy?
Joe McCarthy would be proud.

UPDATE: Say, Madame Speaker: Since we’re in an investigating mood, how about we investigate that little land deal you and San Francisco Mayor Newsom have got going for Treasure Island? Should be real interesting…
