Bloomberg to Host Fundraiser for Bigot Dingy Harry

According to Michael Bloomberg you're a bigot for opposing the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. So why is he helping raise money for the odious Harry Reid?
Mayor Bloomberg will host a fund-raiser for embattled Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid on Sept. 20 -- just weeks after the Nevada incumbent bucked Hizzoner by opposing a mosque near Ground Zero.

The Nevada lawmaker announced last week that he preferred placing the mosque elsewhere, distancing himself from President Obama, who ignited a backlash after speaking out in support of the project.
The only thing that could make this worse is if Chuckie Schumer was there. Oh, wait.
From the invitation: "Michael R. Bloomberg invites you for breakfast at his home with special guest Senator Charles E. Schumer in honor of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Monday September 20th, 2010, 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m." Make checks payable to "Reid Victory Fund" and mail to 150 Broadway, Suite 1011.

Price points: a "chair" contributes or raises $10,000. A "co-chair" contributes or raises $5,000. A "host" contributes or raises $2,400. A "friend," the entry-level ticket, is $1,000.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg continued to lecture the overwhelming majority of Americans last night who oppose the Victory Mosque.
“This is plain and simple people trying to stir up things to get publicity and trying to polarize people so that they can get some votes,” Bloomberg added. “And I don’t think that most of these people who are yelling and screaming really care one way or another.”
Since the beginning I never saw a single politician trying to use the mosque issue as a means of "polarizing" people to get votes. In fact the most outspoken politician on the issue has been Bloomberg himself, and he's been the most derisively sneering and polarizing person on the issue, by far. Now how hypocritical can he be when he's raising money for a certain senator from Nevada who actually has used the issue as a cheap way to pander for votes?
