We Weren't Using It Anyway....

The zombie Newt is back from the grave, attempting a Sister Souljah moment by telling a freedom of speech dinner:
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich yesterday said the country will be forced to reexamine freedom of speech to meet the threat of terrorism.

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....
My response was, if we really will be forced to reexamine someone's freedom of speech, can we please start with his?

But John at Americablog made an even better point:
We already lost a city, Newt. It's called New Orleans. And it was your party, the Republicans, who lost it.
