Newt has other ideas about American democracy
METHINKS NEWT GINGRICH's mind has strayed still farther in his profound opposition to building a mosque in Manhattan. The receding Georgia ex-congressman and presidential wannabe says the mosque should not be built until Saudi Arabia agrees to permit churches and synagogues to go up. In one failed stroke is he equating American democracy with a family-owned closed society in the desert? Is that what he thinks a free society should be all about?
