    Plan on hearing a lot about this "threat" in the coming campaign.

    Newt Gingrich is still a big tease | FP Passport

    Beyond proposing a new anti-sharia law, Gingrich's speech was pretty light on policy ideas. The main thrust seemed to be that the government isn't rhetorically blatant enough about the seriousness of creeping radical Islam. Hmmm... constantly invoking unseen foreign enemies to keep the populace on high-alert. I do seem to recall Mr. Orwell had some thoughts on that subject.

    Ahhhhh! I'm so scared! Vote for the R's!

    What a fear-mongering whore. I can't believe the same strategy works on these fools EVERYTIME.

    Well, that's it for me. In his bid to reclaim relevance, Gingrinch panders to the lowest common denominator among us. I was wondering what he's been doing these past few years. Apparently, learning compassion and respect hasn't been it.

    The neocons are dead in the water....Newtered Gingwad is all but irrelevant.

    If anyone is all about keeping impotent "enemies" around in order to rile up support, it's the wankers like the OP.

    This is incredibly stupid.

    Unless someone can show us that there is a real threat of Sharia law being imposed somewhere in the US.

    It will have the desired effect on less educated republicans and tea baggers.

    I have to wonder about the political courage of suggesting legislation prohibiting something that's never been done...

    i think newt is getting desperate. although this whole meme seems to be the wedge issue du jour for the rightwingnuts. i figure it serves two purposes, the first being that it plays on the same lunatic ramblings of the people who are afraid of the 'muslim' anti-christ african socialist commie they think the president is.

    and the second? i think it's their way of trying to tell the jewish voters... 'stick with us... they want you dead'.

    Newt Gingrich is a disgusting neocon, but he's right.
