Senate Democrats are preparing an election year coup to position Al Gore, in his role as president of the Senate, to break a tie and thus enact a Democratic-backed patients' bill of rights. The death of Republican Sen. Paul Coverdell of Georgia and his replacement by Democrat Zell Miller puts the count for the bill at 50 to 50.

Like a scene out of "Krippendorf's Tribe," in which an anthropology professor rigs up videos of a phony, undiscovered tribe replete with fake rituals and tribal makeup in order to hoodwink his colleagues, the media have recently been taken in by a zoologist on a vacation cruise in the Arctic Ocean who claimed global warming was melting the North Pole.

"This is your eyewitness news team, reporting from Ivy University, where Professor I.M. Murky has decided to turn this year's freshman orientation into a gala event. All sorts of celebrities have been invited. Who are some of these celebrities, Professor Murky?"

If you thought the public uproar over George W. Bush's use of an expletive last weekend was big, imagine the national horror he would have provoked if he had said he was against offering any new Medicare benefits for the elderly.

Brent Bozell | September 08, 2000

George W. Bush had constructed his campaign on puffy clouds of compassionate conservatism, love-bombing reporters with the insistence that he had no side in the bitter, partisan debate in Washington.

Mona Charen | September 08, 2000

The author note about Harry Stein in his delightful new book "How I Accidentally Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (and Found Inner Peace)" begins as follows: "Harry Stein is a writer and journalist whose work has appeared in a number of publications in which he will likely never appear again, including The New York Times Magazine, New York, Esquire, (SET ITAL) and (SET ITAL) GQ end ital."

Oliver North | September 08, 2000

Two weeks ago, our beloved leader, William the Lame Duck, ignored growing threats to our national security and delayed deployment of a national ballistic missile defense system.

Whenever a puff piece praises me for overcoming disadvantages and rising from poverty to a professional career, it makes me feel uneasy -- not out of modesty, but because it is not completely true.

Larry Elder | September 07, 2000

Can anyone find the "religious left"? Apparently, the "religious left" does not exist. Once upon a time, liberals quivered at religious pronouncements whether from Southern Republicans, the Christian Coalition, or the Moral Majority -- the so-called "religious right."

David Limbaugh | September 07, 2000

Has the cause of family values been diminished in this country? Matt Daniels, executive director of the Alliance for Marriage, thinks so -- and is determined to do something about it.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 07, 2000

WASHINGTON -- Did you catch that improbable interview on CNN the other day? With the utmost solemnity, CNN's Bernard Shaw was soliciting the Rev. Jesse Jackson's current views on world politics, particularly international terrorism and the Future of the Human Race. I think that was it. It was all very dramatic.

Robert Novak | September 07, 2000

Undeniable panic is gripping partisan Republicans, from rank-and-file voters to seasoned political operatives, with two full months left before the presidential election. They are dismayed not so much about the surge by Al Gore but the loss of confidence in George W. Bush.

Ann Coulter | September 06, 2000

In the disbarment proceeding of William Jefferson Clinton, his lawyers have argued that taking away Clinton's law license would be "excessively harsh, impermissibly punitive and unprecedented." More amusingly, they also claim that he engaged in the conduct prompting the disbarment proceeding merely out of "a desire to protect himself and others from embarrassment."

Michelle Malkin | September 06, 2000

There was a fatal beating on the West Coast three weeks ago. It was the kind of incident that makes the hair on your arms stand up straight. The kind that makes you gasp out loud and double-check the locks on your front door.

Walter E. Williams | September 06, 2000

Last week, President Clinton carried through with his threat to veto bipartisan legislation that would have repealed the federal death tax over the next decade.

Brent Bozell | September 06, 2000

"Survivor" has by no means gone away, not with CBS airing reruns opposite the Olympics, and the sequel premiering right after the Super Bowl. But it's highly unlikely that the program or any of its cast members, past or future, will ever again saturate the media to the extent that they have this summer. Good news, right?

Mona Charen | September 06, 2000

George W. Bush seems to have been rocked back on his heels by recent polls. It's easy to see why. Lay observers, too, are scratching their heads and pondering why the electorate would be seduced by a staged kiss between nominee and wife.

Debra J. Saunders | September 06, 2000

After spending a summer in airports watching delayed travelers devouring the paperback, "Hannibal," and following the advice of my niece, Jennifer ... who shall pay for this some day ... I bought a copy of the "Silence of the Lambs" sequel.

Linda Chavez | September 06, 2000

The news that California has become the first majority minority state was bound to cause anxiety in some quarters, but who could imagine that the loudest voices would come from across the Atlantic?

Phyllis Schlafly | September 06, 2000

"Surprising," "remarkable," "totally unexpected" were the superlatives with which The New York Times reported the rise in second-grade test scores in California two years after the passage of Proposition 227, ordering the public schools to terminate bilingual education.

Bill Murchison | September 06, 2000

A certain something is in the air: an apprehension, a palpable nervousness. More than a few of those Bush backers who recently were whistling merrily along, not a care in the world, are darting uneasy glances at polls showing Al Gore with huge gains. Could Al, after all, win it?

Jacob Sullum | September 06, 2000

"We need to reaffirm our faith and renew the dedication of our nation and ourselves to God and God's purpose," Joe Lieberman told an audience at a Detroit church last week.

Jack Kemp | September 06, 2000

I've believed all along that this presidential campaign would be neck and neck all the way down to the wire, and early indicators seem to bear that out. Pundits can blather about this so-called "issueless" campaign, but this election will be won or lost on issues.

Bruce Bartlett | September 06, 2000

Recently, I was searching around on the Amazon.com Web site and made an interesting discovery. Among its top 25 best-selling book titles in economics, an unusually high number were written by free market economists.

William F. Buckley | September 06, 2000

The back-and-forth on the forensic encounters runs into layer after layer of contention, some of it embarrassing.

Brent Bozell | September 04, 2000

The news is in: CNN/USA President Rick Kaplan is out. Allow me to explain why this is not a time for my fellow conservatives to pop those champagne corks.

David Limbaugh | September 04, 2000

Al Gore is telling George Bush to "put up or shut up" and begin dealing with the specifics of campaign issues. My fervent hope is that Bush doesn't permit Gore to become his campaign manager.

Debra J. Saunders | September 04, 2000

Apparently, Dick Cheney did such a swell job as the head of the giant Halliburton Co. that the board of directors decided to reward him with extra shares of company stock when he resigned. He may have been a good CEO, but as an applicant for the post of America's next vice president, Cheney is a dud.

Robert Novak | September 04, 2000

This is a happy Labor Day for Richard Trumka, second-ranking official of the AFL-CIO. Not only is he a high-profile supporter of Al Gore for president who keeps his job as the labor organization's secretary-treasurer even though he has invoked the Fifth Amendment in violation of AFL-CIO rules.

William F. Buckley | September 04, 2000

Have you ever died? No, you will say; but that doesn't excuse your indifference to the cost of dying, most notably, funeral expenses. These are significant, even unbearable, episodes in economic life.

Bruce Bartlett | September 04, 2000

Al Gore wants very much to make the issue of drug affordability a major issue in the presidential campaign. If he can make the case that drug prices are too high and drug industry profits too big, then voters may agree with him on the need for a massive new government program to subsidize drugs for seniors.
