Newt: A vote for Lamont means the terrorists win

The Connecticut senate primary is this Tuesday. (Go Ned!) So in a final attempt (well, it's only Sunday, I shouldn't say "final") at motivating the CT voters into voting for Lieberman, the GOP is spreading the fear again, via the mouthpiece that is Newt Gingrich (emphasis mine):
Third, you have what I think is a legitimate insurgency in Connecticut, which needs to be met head on and debated head on, which is people who say this is so hard, it is so frightening, it’s so painful, can’t we come home and hide? And I think if Lamont wins next Tuesday, it will be the beginning of extraordinarily important period in American politics, and in American history. For all of us to have this debate. How dangerous are the terrorists? How dangerous are the dictatorships? And what does America have to do in that kind of a dangerous world?
Seriously? Vigorous and robust political debate is what this country is all about. Is Newt saying that "oh, finally, if Ned wins, we'll finally have the ability to do so," or is he likening folks who are vehemently against the war in Iraq to the insurgents in Iraq? I'm sure it's the latter. The better to frighten you back into submission, my pretties.

So is Newt saying Ned Lamont = the Connecticut version of Moqtada Al-Sadr? Give me a freakin' break. This is a new low. And just when you think they couldn't go any lower ...
