An Interesting Irony

Newt Gingrich is quite right that serious measures need to be taken so that we stop giving terrorists the "rights" that will ultimately allow them to kill us.

What will be interesting is the response from Gingrich's putative presidential campaign rival John McCain -- and, in fact, anyone who supported McCain-Feingold campaign finance "reform." If they continue to support the legislation's anti-free speech provisions and yet oppose what Gingrich is arguing, they're going to find themselves in a position that's awkward, to say the least.

After all, is there anyone who really wants to run on a platform that argues that terrorists should enjoy free speech rights that are denied to law abiding American citizens who simply want to participate in their own politicla process within 30 (or 60) days of an election?
