Pelosi Bungles The First

You know, I’m sort of going to miss Nancy Pelosi after November.  She can always be relied on to say something really dumb:

Nancy Pelosi kicked off a bit of controversy on the right this morning when the news broke that she had told a local San Francisco radio station that she agreed with those calling for a look at how the groups opposing the “Ground Zero mosque” are being funded.

It was a bit unclear what she was referring to, and now her office sends over a statement from her clarifying what she meant and sort of standing by what she said:

“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.’

Contrary to the paranoid rantings of some, I don’t think Nancy Pelosi is about to institute the thought police in this country.  She’s simply being her usual idiotic self.  She can’t say that people shouldn’t be allowed to object to the mosque so she falls back on the “follow the money” line.  Ironically, that’s even more idiotic since the most of this is being stirred up by talk radio and the blogosphere.  So there’s not much money to follow.

Still, how does the Speaker of the House say something like this and not know that her critics are going to be all over it?  This woman makes Dan Quayle sound like Demosthenes.
