Robert Novak | August 26, 2000

Despite ardent wooing of Jesse Ventura by Vice President Al Gore, the independent governor of Minnesota is contributing to a possible Republican windfall in the tight battle for control of Congress.

If one picture could capture the tragedy of the 20th century, it would be a recent front-page photograph of a Korean mother and son, reunited after 50 years of not being able to see each other.

Brent Bozell | August 25, 2000

At the start of each party's convention this year, a study was released charging the media have favored George W. Bush over Al Gore so far in Campaign 2000. In each case, the same press, which ignore any study, finding or poll suggesting a liberal bias, jumped all over the results.

Ann Coulter | August 24, 2000

Attempting to prove -- once and for all -- that he is (BEGIN ITALICS)not(END ITALICS) a space alien, Vice President Al Gore gave his wife a violent, mashing kiss before beginning his speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Thomas Sowell | August 24, 2000

What amazes some media pundits is that Gov. George W. Bush has seized issues that have long belonged to the Democrats, such as education and Social Security.

Larry Elder | August 24, 2000

"If someone ever asks if we should bid for another political convention," said Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, "my answer would be 'no.' What did we gain?"

Emmett Tyrrell | August 24, 2000

One of the absurd conceits of our political class is its members' belief that they greatly relish nothing more during a campaign than a good old-fashioned political debate.

Maggie Gallagher | August 24, 2000

Gay rights activists this week took aim against that grave threat to their life, liberties and pursuit of happiness ... the Boy Scouts. The protests planned for 21 states around the country were sparsely attended, but the sanctimonious self-righteousness of the participants was undaunted:

Robert Novak | August 24, 2000

Post-convention fear and loathing that grips Republican strategists has little to do with either the current Democratic bounce in the polls or Al Gore's reputed prowess as a debater against George W. Bush.

Thomas Sowell | August 23, 2000

Media pundits seem fascinated by the "bounce" in the polls that Vice President Al Gore got after his speech to the Democrats' convention. What should really be getting their attention is the reason for the success of his speech -- and what that says, not about Al Gore, but about the American public.

Michelle Malkin | August 23, 2000

Conservatives have been at the forefront of defending Microsoft's intellectual property rights, but are reluctant to criticize Napster for fear of seeming anti-technology and pro-government. Don't be intimidated by the cyber-mob. Napster is about freeloading, not freedom.

Walter E. Williams | August 23, 2000

When Vice President Al Gore announced that Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., was his running mate, many people applauded. Lieberman, an honorable man, was seen as a refreshing choice that just might help voters forget the immorality and corruption emblematic of the Clinton-Gore administration.

Brent Bozell | August 23, 2000

Most Americans who know him, including conservatives who won't vote for the Democratic ticket, recognize Joe Lieberman's personal decency and integrity. But not all.

David Limbaugh | August 23, 2000

Has the Bush campaign been crippled by the Gore freight train? I think not, but Gore's temporary convention bounce should serve as a wake-up call and an antidote for overconfidence for the Bush camp.

Debra J. Saunders | August 23, 2000

Independent Counsel Robert Ray should dismantle the grand jury that is exploring whether to indict President Clinton for perjury. If Ray can't see his way to do that, Republicans should try an end run around him.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 23, 2000

"This is a culture war, between the powers that were and that will be." Is he talking about abortion? Gay rights? Hollywood violence? Illegitimacy?

Bruce Bartlett | August 23, 2000

Much of Al Gore's acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention was devoted to class warfare. It was all about the rich versus the poor and the powerful against the powerless. Gore, needless to say, portrayed George W. Bush as the protector of the former and himself as the champion of the latter.

Jack Kemp | August 23, 2000

Vice President Al Gore and President Bill Clinton not only took sole credit for today's splendid economy in their speeches last week at the Democratic National Convention, but they also boasted that the Clinton-Gore "new economic strategy" saved the nation from economic disaster.

Mona Charen | August 22, 2000

Al Gore is enjoying a post-convention bounce. But there may be less there than meets the eye. Presidential candidates always get a lift in the polls after a convention -- all of the news attention, the chatter and possibly even some of the speeches goose the man's popularity for a week or two.

Debra J. Saunders | August 22, 2000

It's like a GOP convention because party handlers are trying to put a positive spin on the candidate's youthful years -- only different because the Republicans tried to make George W. Bush's college years seem to be less fun-filled.

Linda Chavez | August 22, 2000

It comes as a shocking surprise to professors at Stanford, Harvard and other elite universities, but teaching immigrant children in English actually seems to help them learn the language.

Bill Murchison | August 22, 2000

One thing and another ... The world turns, weeks go by, and pretty soon you see you've bypassed one of the year's top political and cultural stories -- a story without visible relationship to Al Gore vs. George Bush.

Jacob Sullum | August 22, 2000

Joe Lieberman's integrity did not last long. Barely a week after he was picked for the Democratic ticket, the Connecticut senator had renounced most of the positions that made him an interesting choice. By the time you read this, he may have given up the rest.

Ann Coulter | August 21, 2000

With less than five months until the ethnic cleansing begins (as the media views George Bush's imminent swearing in next January), the media have gone into full battle mode. There is not even a pretense of objectivity anymore. The adversary press has entered full-throttle Gore campaign mode.

Michelle Malkin | August 21, 2000

She is one of the most self-serving, hate-filled, race-obsessed politicians in America. The Democratic Party doesn't just embrace her. It kneels at her feet.

Brent Bozell | August 21, 2000

In 1992, the national media turned the Republican convention in Houston into a "Feast of Hate and Fear," a week-long nightmare featuring "scowling conservatives" like Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan and Marilyn Quayle.

David Limbaugh | August 21, 2000

Some have suggested that Democrats have no central rallying theme this year. I have a suggestion: "Prosperity without a Clue." I know it wouldn't be very effective, but at least it would be true.

Oliver North | August 21, 2000

The post-Clinton era is finally underway! Oh sure, we all know that our beloved leader is going to be in office for another five long months, but here in Los Angeles, at the Democrats' painfully-boring "America 2000" Convention

Debra J. Saunders | August 21, 2000

Four years ago, Johnny Chung was a high-roller at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. He was a "fat cat" donor who had given $366,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

Robert Novak | August 21, 2000

Heavy hitters in the Democratic Party who prayed for Al Gore's acceptance speech to retrieve a failed convention got the bad news Thursday afternoon. In a few hours, the presidential nominee would deliver a "laundry list" of policy initiatives. That accurately forecast an imitation state-of-the-union address, devoid of political poetry.

Bruce Bartlett | August 21, 2000

One of the hottest issues in economics today is something with the odd name of NAIRU, which stands for non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment. The idea behind NAIRU is that there is a level of unemployment that is consistent with stable inflation.

William F. Buckley | August 21, 2000

Is it really the case that messianic narcissism is OK by the American people? The Gore Experience will test the question.

John Leo | August 21, 2000

The pundit class is probably exaggerating the damage done to Republicans by the 1998 elections, just as it exaggerated the gains of 1994. Still, it's an excellent time to offer free advice to the GOP. The party should do this:
