Turf This!

I don't get how Nancy Pelosi, who famously called the tea party movement "astroturf" rather than acknowledging it as a real grass-roots movement, now wants to "investigate" the people opposed to the mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. In both cases she appears to believe that anyone who disagrees with her must be funded by a shady right-wing organization. She must not have gotten/believed that polls that show close to 70% of Americans think the mosque shouldn't be built there. Her reaction smells of Jonah Goldberg's book "Liberal Fascism".
