I would normally not post one of these annoying, snarky "Pete on the Street" segments from John King's show on CNN because they are generally about as unfunny and uninformative as the Jeanne Moos segments on Blitzer's show.

That said, how pathetic is it when the John King "color guy" is making you look like an idiot if you're one of the people claiming the Islamic center is going to be built at ground zero?

And note to the press, quit calling it a mosque. A prayer room on top of a rec center is not a mosque.

Can you help us out?
