Robert Novak | September 02, 2000

Misleading Democratic television ads in competitive districts against four Republican candidates -- Rep. Jay Dickey of Arkansas, Rep. John Hostettler of Indiana, former Rep. Dick Zimmer of New Jersey and Rep. Ernie Fletcher of Kentucky -- have been pulled back.

Michelle Malkin | September 01, 2000

I caught the first installment of "Hopkins 24/7" this week. It's a documentary series on ABC chronicling the daily life of medical staffers at Baltimore's prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Mona Charen | September 01, 2000

Al Gore chose Joe Lieberman to be his running mate because Lieberman is a prominent religious man -- perhaps the only religiously observant person in the Democratic party eligible for the vice presidency.

Oliver North | September 01, 2000

In Melville's "Moby Dick," a tormented Captain Ahab wanders the world's oceans in search of a white whale -- and in so doing, jeopardizes all aboard his ill-fated vessel. Bill Clinton's global pursuit of a legacy has become such a quest.

Debra J. Saunders | September 01, 2000

The most irritating part of this job is listening to people who don't really follow politics proclaim that all politicians pander shamelessly. For such know-nothings, there are no politicians of principle.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 01, 2000

America's progressives, liberals, humanitarians, and other self-satisfied poseurs have found a new group to outlaw, the Boy Scouts. We should have seen it coming. On the Tuesday night of the Democratic National Convention a troop of Scouts was booed when it appeared.

Ann Coulter | August 31, 2000

The cheek of Vice President Al Gore claiming he will give a larger tax break to "working families" and "those who need a voice" is really more than any voter should have to bear.

Thomas Sowell | August 31, 2000

Lenin is supposed to have referred to blind defenders and apologists for the Soviet Union in the Western democracies as "useful idiots." Yet even Lenin might have been surprised at how far these useful idiots would carry their partisanship in later years -- including our own times.

Brent Bozell | August 31, 2000

Our frisky soon-to-be-former president can make all the overseas trips he wants, but he won't be able to shake what will be his legacy: He sullied his office and, more than any other person in American history, did more to rob impressionable children of their innocence.

Larry Elder | August 31, 2000

The jury is in. Welfare rolls, since welfare reform, declined 56 percent. Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala admitted, "After four years, we have strong evidence that welfare reform is working." But, get this. According to the Los Angeles Times, " ... candidates on both sides of the political aisle take credit for pressing welfare reform."

David Limbaugh | August 31, 2000

I applaud Sen. Joseph Lieberman for publicly professing his faith and the media for not freaking out over it. I applaud neither of them for their utter failure to apply the same openness toward conservatives of faith.

Maggie Gallagher | August 31, 2000

Matt Daniels knows a thing or two about fatherless families. He was just the sort of kid certain sorts of liberals think they are defending when they instruct us to rename family breakdown "family diversity," as if a fancy new name could fill the void left in a boy's heart when Dad disappears.

Robert Novak | August 31, 2000

Early last Saturday evening, at the end of a week none too happy for George W. Bush, his operatives placed calls to NBC, CBS and ABC. Dick Cheney was made available for all three Sunday morning network talk shows.

Michelle Malkin | August 30, 2000

"The Washington Post cordially invites you to the 15th annual National Council of Caucasian Women's White Family Reunion Celebration."

Walter E. Williams | August 30, 2000

Richard Mann, a North Carolina farmer, shot a wolf that was threatening his cattle. When he went to bury the animal the next day, he was confronted by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) officials who charged him with killing a red wolf

Debra J. Saunders | August 30, 2000

According to his attorney, convicted murderer Jack Kevorkian, 72, should be freed from prison while he appeals his 10-to-25-year sentence for second-degree murder because Kevorkian suffers from high blood pressure, always wears a sweater because he's cold and looks like a "skeleton."

Phyllis Schlafly | August 30, 2000

The Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services, a tax-funded civilian feminist lobby group that tries to set Pentagon policy, has been pushing for months to get women assigned to duty on submarines.

Jack Kemp | August 30, 2000

As we celebrate Labor Day 2000, it is instructive to look back at what Karl Marx predicted in 1848 about the plight of labor: "The modern laborer," he wrote in "The Communist Manifesto," "instead of rising with the process of industry, sinks deeper and deeper ...

William F. Buckley | August 30, 2000

-->"What we have to have from Bush," the congressman said over the telephone, "is an espousal of a controversial policy recommendation -- and stick to it and hew down hard." That makes a lot of sense, to this non-congressman, and the lead is surely there -- sitting duck.

Bruce Bartlett | August 30, 2000

Al Gore would like voters to believe that the principal issue in the presidential campaign is whether George W. Bush's $1.3 trillion tax cut is too large. It will use up too much of projected surpluses, overstimulate the economy, and ultimately, raise interest rates, Gore's team argues.

Mona Charen | August 29, 2000

PBS will air a documentary this week that really ought to carry a warning to viewers: "The following program contains words and images that may be inappropriate for some viewers. Committed Republicans in particular may find the following painful to watch." It's "The Rise and Fall of Newt Gingrich" (check local listings).

Debra J. Saunders | August 29, 2000

Family and friends watching the 1988 marriage of Barry and Sun Bonds probably had a few clues it wouldn't last. The day before they flew to Vegas to tie the knot, the ballplayer took his bride-to-be to an attorney so that she could sign a prenuptial agreement that stated she wouldn't have any claim on his earnings and assets during their marriage.

Linda Chavez | August 29, 2000

Hypocrisy is usually the one, unforgivable sin in American politics, but apparently not when the hypocrites are liberals and the issue is school choice.

Jacob Sullum | August 29, 2000

Al Gore has admitted that he used to smoke pot, saying he realized it was a mistake and resolved not to do it anymore. Gore's running mate, Joe Lieberman, recently came clean about a habit Democrats consider even more shameful: supporting school choice.

Bill Murchison | August 29, 2000

So kick me, cut me dead at the grocery store for want of taste and civilized sensibility. I deserve it. With TV having gone straight to the hot place since "You Are There" and "Perry Mason," what excuse had I for watching every grimy detail of the last grimy episode of "Survivor"?

Ann Coulter | August 28, 2000

A lot of Republicans didn't take too kindly to George W. Bush's adoption of the slogan "compassionate conservatism." A lot of us think conservatism is compassionate, thank you very much.

Michelle Malkin | August 28, 2000

Rudy Boesch, 72-year-old retired Navy SEAL and the nation's most famous grumpy old man, may have lost the $1 million prize on CBS's adventure show, "Survivor." But he won millions of hearts. At a town hall meeting hosted by Bryant Gumbel this week, Boesch showed why Rudymania is all the rage.

David Limbaugh | August 28, 2000

Last time I wrote that Gore was not really straying from the Clinton reservation by stressing Old Democrat (liberal) rather than New Democrat (more centrist) themes. Instead, he was employing another familiar Clintonian strategy: populism and class warfare.

Mona Charen | August 28, 2000

When President Bill Clinton announced that the federal government was issuing new rules permitting research on embryonic stem cells, he provided his personal assurance that the experimentation would meet "rigorous ethical standards."

Oliver North | August 28, 2000

When candidates talk, it pays to listen. Sure, there are those who believe "you can tell a politician is lying when his/her lips are moving," and that old saw may even be true when they are testifying under oath about their girlfriends or fund raisers at Buddhist temples.

Debra J. Saunders | August 28, 2000

The underreported story of this election is how much extra money Al Gore wants the federal government to spend. Newspapers have devoted much ink to how George W. Bush' tax-cut plan might be a problem if there is an economic downturn.

Bruce Bartlett | August 28, 2000

After being relatively quiet for several months, the tax issue has reemerged as a hot topic in the presidential race. This was to be expected, because up until now, the political debate has primarily been within each political party.

Robert Novak | August 28, 2000

On Aug. 3, with Congress on summer break, President Clinton quietly unveiled his latest "recess appointments" not subject to Senate confirmation. They included Bill Lann Lee, continuing his unconfirmed tenure running the Justice Department's civil rights division.

John Leo | August 28, 2000

Hollywood is still fretting -- quietly, for now -- about Sen. Joseph Lieberman's presence on the Democratic ticket. My favorite quote on this subject comes from Tom Strickler, a Republican and a talent agent in Los Angeles.
