I'm thinking of declaring myself a black Democrat and walking out on the party in disgust. It now turns out Sen. Joseph Lieberman supported Proposition 209, the California initiative that prohibited the state from engaging in race discrimination for or against any race.

Congratulations are in order for the San Francisco Weekly, for an informative article that introduces sanity into a subject where insanity is the norm -- namely, rent control in San Francisco.

Larry Elder | August 18, 2000

What about anti-Semitism? USA Today asked this of Vice President Al Gore, referring to Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., Gore's pick for running mate. Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew, becomes the first Jewish running mate on a major party presidential ticket.

In 1992, during one of the presidential debates, Bill Clinton slipped and said "this show" when he meant to say "debate." But show was much more accurate (Bill Clinton only tells the truth inadvertently).

Eight years ago, Republicans were accusing the Democrats of being all show, no substance. Now the tables have turned and the Democrats are whining that the GOP put on too good a show in Philadelphia.

Maggie Gallagher | August 18, 2000

In the place of what Bill Maher called the GOP's "endless parade of black people," the first two days of the Democratic convention featured an endless parade of ... Kennedys.

William F. Buckley | August 18, 2000

A television director spoke of the entrance of President Clinton to the stage. "That required very intricate work. You could see there were four alleyways, maybe even five, and he had to turn the corner to go down each one.

Ann Coulter | August 17, 2000

-->After a week of prattle about Joe "Conscience of the Party" Lieberman's deep sense of morality, someone in the Democratic Party noticed it might be a tad unseemly to have an opening-night gala at the Democratic National Convention at the Playboy mansion.

Thomas Sowell | August 17, 2000

One of the scariest stories in the news is receiving very little attention. According to USA Today, parents are being put under pressure by schools and by courts to have their children drugged with Ritalin.

Michelle Malkin | August 17, 2000

Death Row Marv is sitting on my desk, strapped to an electric chair, staring at me. This "toy," marketed for kids ages 13 years old and up, came from a local comic book store. It's a half-foot-tall replica of a violent character created by surly graphic artist Frank Miller.

Walter E. Williams | August 17, 2000

Now that we're about to decide the White House's next occupant, let's speculate about how previous presidents might fare were they standing for election in today's America.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 17, 2000

Once again, the Democrats at their quadrennial national convention sweat and heave to achieve the preposterous. And once again they have achieved that weird goal. America, the world's economic marvel is, according to them, on the hem of catastrophe. All that can save us is four more years of the Democrats.

William F. Buckley | August 17, 2000

STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Democratic campaign featuring the vice presidential nominee kicked off on Wednesday, a shout of joy for the candidate who, in the words of The Stamford Advocate, was "WELCOME HOME."

Robert Novak | August 17, 2000

Although the 4,370 delegates to the Democratic National Convention want to present a united front for the Gore-Lieberman ticket, their discontent seeps out. They constitute America's party of the left, and current Democratic policies somehow seem too centrist for them.

The cover of the Aug. 11 Entertainment Weekly blared, "Are There No Limits? Filth, Raunch, Violence & Hate Rule Pop Culture -- Has Showbiz Finally Gone Too Far?"

David Limbaugh | August 16, 2000

If you ever doubted your instincts that the mainstream media's bias inhibited their analytical abilities, just remember their chorus warning of an impeachment backlash against Republicans.

Debra J. Saunders | August 16, 2000

It was a balmy evening, as my comrades in ink and I strolled back from a shindig on Santa Monica pier for the Democratic Convention sponsored by such swell folk as the National Rifle Association and Phillip Morris.

Linda Chavez | August 16, 2000

The Democrats promised a "people's convention," full of working Americans whose lives mirror the electorate's. This week the Democrats had their chance to deliver on their promises. So, how do the Democrats stack up to the Republicans?

Phyllis Schlafly | August 16, 2000

Grandiose plans are under way for the 55th annual gathering of the U.N. General Assembly in New York City Sept. 5-9.

Jack Kemp | August 16, 2000

A couple of weeks ago in this space, I opined that the choice of Dick Cheney as the Republican vice-presidential candidate said a lot in George W. Bush's favor.

Bruce Bartlett | August 16, 2000

Some years ago, Richard Nixon nominated a man to the Supreme Court who was widely viewed as a mediocre choice at best. One of his Senate supporters defended the appointment on the grounds that the mediocre deserved representation on the Court, too.

There is something in the air. Stop. Breathe deep. Do you feel it? It's the coming departure of Bill Clinton from the national stage.

Debra J. Saunders | August 15, 2000

"Perhaps once or twice in every generation," said former Rep. Paul McHale, D-Pa., last week, there comes an issue "that is so wrapped in passion that families are torn apart, political parties are divided and friendships are destroyed.

Brent Bozell | August 14, 2000

Reporters have been comparing the two major vice presidential nominees and noticing their similarities. Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman are both experienced, sober, dignified, free of Clintonian sex appeal.

David Limbaugh | August 14, 2000

Can anyone fairly deny that when it comes to name calling, insults and innuendo, conservatives are fair game? They are called racists and anti-Semites, and are said to be worthy of death, but no one seems to consider such words hate speech or even inappropriate.

Oliver North | August 14, 2000

When the Democrat National Convention and circus side-show, billed as "America 2000" finally gets underway at the 20,500-seat Los Angeles Staples Center on Monday, the promoters claim that "history is going to be made."
