Newt and Sharia / payroll tax

Newt is getting killed from his own party,and the "conservative press"
The latest attack that I saw was in the Palm Beach Post from Michael Gerson who is a Washington Post columnist.The editorial page daily has 2 guest columnists one from the "left" and the other from the "right".
Mr. Gerson was on the right,and his article was entitled "Gingrich's war on Shariah".
He notes that since Sharia is a mortal threat to the US and the world (Newt's wordsss) then we need a federal law that Sharia cannot be recognized by any court in the U.S.
For this suggestion,Newt is attacked as a party with "totalitarianism " and in bed with despotism.
I don't know how the election will turn out,however Newt's disregard for PC in connection with the Palestinians,the "peace process" and radical Islam make him the most favorable candidate on our issues.

I commend Boehner and the House GOP for so-far standing up to this 2 month nonsense on the payroll tax.In 2 months to have to refight this battle makes no sense.The fact that Senators of both parties just wanted to get out of town for the holidays, is no reason to kick the can down the street.
