Newt vs. Stephanie Cutter on new Crossfire??! Just shoot me in the face already. That sounds completely awful.—

CNN is reportedly in talks with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter to host its reboot of “Crossfire,” which was cancelled in 2005 but is set to return this June. We’ve found at least one person excited to see Cutter on air: fellow Obama for America veteran Lis Smith.
Whether or not Cutter excelled at politics is up for debate, but her on-air meltdowns during the campaign, such as her epic meltdown with Bret Baier over Benghazi, lead us to believe there just might be some entertainment value, especially when you add Newt Gingrich to the mix. The only thing missing is the conservative. Zing!
Dear CNN: the only Newt Gingrich/Stephanie Cutter TV show I'd be interested in would involve them fighting in a pit with rusty broadswords.—

Newt Gingrich would make Stefanie Cutter look like Simple Jack.—

Also, nothing against Cutter, but the ideal place for Newt is MSNBC, teaming up with Chris Matthews and talking about animals—

1. Newt vs Cutter not fair to Dems. 2. Also not fair to guests who may want to talk.—

So will Newt vs Cutter Crossfire show be done in Lincoln-Douglas debate format? Newt gets one show to talk, Cutter rebuts in next show?—
