no Newt!

Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a "different set of rules" may be needed to reduce terrorists’ ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.

"We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a city, which I think could happen in the next decade," said Gingrich, a Republican who helped engineer the GOP’s takeover of Congress in 1994.

Gingrich spoke to about 400 state and local power brokers last night at the annual Nackey S. Loeb First Amendment award dinner, which fetes people and organizations that stand up for freedom of speech.

Gingrich sharply criticized campaign finance laws he charged were reducing free speech and doing little to fight attack advertising. He also said court rulings over separation of church and state have hurt citizens’ ability to express themselves and their faith.
Now let’s get clear on this one point. Newt Gingrich is not Presidential material. Newt Gingrich is not even government material. He says things designed to make us think he’s a player. Newt Gingrich is not a player. If there’s anything that’s clear in American politics right now. Newt Gingrich cannot be allowed back in the game. Got it?
