Thomas Sowell | August 04, 2000

The public in general and parents in particular are shocked from time to time when tests reveal the intellectual incompetence of public school teachers, or when some of the weird fads to which school children have been subjected come to light.

Michelle Malkin | August 04, 2000

One of the perks of being a work-at-home mom is not having to drive to the office. The only keys I need are attached to a keyboard. The only gas I worry about is my baby's.

Larry Elder | August 04, 2000

"Latino trash." Who would dare use that expression -- especially in public? Yet calling poor, presumably morally degenerate Caucasians "white trash" is perfectly OK.

Oliver North | August 04, 2000

The liberal lapdogs laboring in the media vineyards have always been happy to proselytize on behalf of Clinton-Gore & Co.

Debra J. Saunders | August 04, 2000

How hungry is alternate Celeste Grieg of Northridge, Calif., for a GOP victory? "I'm starving," she answered.

Linda Chavez | August 04, 2000

Nothing frightens the Democrats more than the possibility that increasing numbers of blacks, Hispanics, and women may defect to George W. Bush this November.

Bruce Bartlett | August 04, 2000

This is the time of year when most Americans take their vacations, with two weeks per year being fairly standard. In Europe, by contrast, one month of vacation is pretty much the minimum, with some countries mandating six weeks or more.

Thomas Sowell | August 03, 2000

Random thoughts on the passing scene: How can "hate crimes" laws be constitutional, when the 14th Amendment specifies "equal protection of the laws" for all, not special protection for special groups?

Debra J. Saunders | August 03, 2000

It's like a Democratic convention, and it isn't. It's like the Dems in that Newt Gingrich won't be speaking -- but it's different than a Democratic convention because you won't hear Newt's name from the podium every 20 minutes.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 03, 2000

Though they will not admit it, most of the principals here at the Republican National Convention -- the journalists and the conventioneers -- are exhausted.

Robert Novak | August 03, 2000

During Tuesday night's choreographed patriotism and nostalgia at the Republican National Convention, New York Republican Chairman William Powers triggered authentic emotion.

Ann Coulter | August 02, 2000

There was always a peculiar tension between the Clinton defenders who earnestly insisted they believed his denials on one hand, and, on the other, the ones who thought it was totally great that the president was such a horndog.

Thomas Sowell | August 02, 2000

Of all the ways of making decisions, one of the most ridiculous is putting decisions in the hands of third parties who pay no price for being wrong.

Michelle Malkin | August 02, 2000

If the Republican Party grows any softer, it will need to replace the grand old elephant with a new symbol: the Pillsbury Doughboy.

Brent Bozell | August 02, 2000

Here in this sports-mad town, where passionate fans are used to the heartbreak of losing teams, we can find an appropriate metaphor for the quadrennial clash of network newsies and Republican conventioneers.

David Limbaugh | August 02, 2000

With only a half year left in his reign, his legacy starving for some substance, and Al and Hillary getting all the attention, it must be awfully tough to be Bill Clinton right now.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 02, 2000

Every lawyer knows that if he can control the questions, he can get the answers he wants. The problem with the Danforth interim report on the Waco tragedy was not the answers but the questions.

Jack Kemp | August 02, 2000

George W. Bush's choice for his vice presidential running mate, understands that this marvelous "new" economy we enjoy today began with the across-the-board tax-rate reductions in 1981 and the return to sound money ushered in by Paul Volcker and sustained by Alan Greenspan at the Federal Reserve Board.

Ann Coulter | August 01, 2000

Well, it looks like George Bush has lost the jaded feminist vote.

Thomas Sowell | August 01, 2000

Rush Limbaugh has been having some fun lately, playing back recordings of politicians and media people, who have been repeating the word "gravitas" like parrots, day after day.

Walter E. Williams | August 01, 2000

During the days of the Soviet Union, Swiss watches were illegal. In the era of the American Prohibition, the sale, manufacture and importation of intoxicating liquor was illegal.

Mona Charen | August 01, 2000

Having recently described a personal experience involving a serious auto crash, I've received lots of letters asking whether this has changed my view of government regulation.

Debra J. Saunders | August 01, 2000

Remember when doomsayers predicted that impeachment would cost legions of Republicans their seats in 2000?

Maggie Gallagher | August 01, 2000

The news that Dick Cheney won the veepstakes sent a little chill down my spine. It's not that there is anything at all wrong with the former secretary of defense.

Bill Murchison | August 01, 2000

"Republican Pleasantries." "A convention stage-managed to reclaim moderate voters." "Conservative Wing Dominates Philadelphia as Bush Tries to Appeal to Moderates." "Bush and Cheney, blanding their way to victory."

Robert Novak | August 01, 2000

There is no doubt that a vast majority of delegates to the Republican National Convention would have liked their party on record for abolishing the federal Department of Education.

William F. Buckley | August 01, 2000

A friend passes along a trivium, which churned in the mind beginning immediately. It is that the typical man utters 10,000 words every day, the woman, 25,000.

Bruce Bartlett | August 01, 2000

Campaigns are run on issues and what candidates have to say about them is important. But campaign promises and party platforms are not binding.

John Leo | August 01, 2000

I made a mistake of sorts in my recent column on double standards: I ran out of space before I could bring up the name of Herbert Marcuse.

Thomas Sowell | July 31, 2000

A cynic is said to be someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. The same could be said of economic illiterates, many of whom are in politics and the media.

David Limbaugh | July 31, 2000

If the game of politics were fiction it would be amusing to watch the Democrats scurrying around in a desperate dither over George W. Bush's decision to choose Dick Cheney as his running mate.

Debra J. Saunders | July 31, 2000

California can no longer claim to be the state of laid-back acceptance. These days, if people do something that the New Puritans in California politics don't like, the Puritans try to outlaw it -- or study it out of existence.

Robert Novak | July 31, 2000

Fred Meyer, one of George W. Bush's closest political operatives, said out loud in a speech to the Republican National Committee Thursday what had been whispered in high-level Republican circles: there will be an unprecedented flood of soft money spent in the 2000 campaign.
