Debra J. Saunders | September 24, 2000

Al Gore has made his share of verbal gaffes. In 1993, he needed a curator to identify the bust of George Washington when he visited Monticello. The following year, he mistranslated "e pluribus unum," as "out of one, many."

Robert Novak | September 23, 2000

Republican senators facing re-election killed an appropriations bill not because they oppose a salary increase for them contained in the bill, but because they don't want to pass it without also raising the minimum wage.

Thomas Sowell | September 22, 2000

The recent justifiable outcry about the irresponsibility of the entertainment industry in feeding young people a steady diet of calloused violence and cheap sex would have more moral standing if it did not also reveal the double standards in the media and in politics.

Michelle Malkin | September 22, 2000

East Coast conservatives cheered last week after the primary election loss of political turncoat Rep. Mike Forbes of New York. "His stunning defeat has national implications," the Wall Street Journal's John Fund wrote in his online campaign diary.

Larry Elder | September 22, 2000

"Dear Larry: You're right. How dare I go and have a heart attack when I don't have any health-care insurance. You're a cold, cold man."

Mona Charen | September 22, 2000

The announcement by Independent Counsel Robert Ray that he lacks sufficient evidence to prosecute the president or first lady on Whitewater-related matters went through two spin cycles in the space of one.

Ann Coulter | September 21, 2000

Vice President Al Gore and his eternally troubled running mate Joe Lieberman have threatened to sic the Federal Communications Commission on Hollywood for engaging in false and deceptive advertising in its portrayals of violence.

Thomas Sowell | September 21, 2000

Does America have a terminal case of triviality? Just weeks from now, we will be selecting someone for the highest office in our land -- and the most important office in the world.

Brent Bozell | September 21, 2000

Concerning the Federal Trade Commission report on the entertainment industry's marketing of violent products to children, a few observations:

Phyllis Schlafly | September 21, 2000

Abstinence education is spreading rapidly in public schools all over the country, but the pressures are great for schools to continue teaching the "comprehensive," explicit, condom/contraceptive curricula that have been used for the last 20 years with such unhappy results.

Maggie Gallagher | September 21, 2000

Now is a striking moment in our cultural history. The cover of Time magazine asks "Should unhappy parents stay hitched?" and inside, citing the latest installment of Dr. Judith Wallerstein's 25-year study of children of divorce, suggests for the most part, yes.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 21, 2000

Now that the repellent jingoism that the Nazis, then the Soviets, then the rest of us, brought to the Olympics has receded to tolerable excess, I wondered why these Olympics so quickly became so uninteresting. Their television ratings are down. Newspaper readership of the games' coverage is flat.

Michelle Malkin | September 20, 2000

"Pursuit of the news is not a license for arrogance." That high-minded principle is enshrined by the Society of Professional Journalists, which is dedicated to "stimulating high standards of ethical behavior."

Walter E. Williams | September 20, 2000

The Federal Trade Commission has just released its year-long study showing how Hollywood's film industry, the music industry and the video-game industry have been deliberately targeting and marketing all manner of filth and violence to America's children.

David Limbaugh | September 20, 2000

Something fishy appears to be going on in the presidential campaign. If I didn't know better, I would think a conspiracy was afoot among Gore supporters -- and that many Beltway Republicans were part of it.

Debra J. Saunders | September 20, 2000

Rep. Jim Rogan, R-Calif., calls his re-election effort "my great experiment in politics." The experiment is to discover whether voters want to be represented by a man who is willing to do what he believes is right even if it could cost him public office.

William F. Buckley | September 20, 2000

The California college-grant operation has gone almost unnoticed. It is supremely interesting and may prove a model for orderly welfarism.

Jack Kemp | September 20, 2000

In the years since I served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Bush administration, I have told thousands of people the story of Alice Frazier, a remarkable African-American woman who lives in southeast Washington, D.C.

Bruce Bartlett | September 20, 2000

The strongest evidence that Al Gore's current lead in the polls may not be all it seems is the increasingly shrill attacks on Ralph Nader by Gore's allies in the national media.

Robert Novak | September 20, 2000

Sen. Rick Santorum, a first-termer from the famous Republican class of '94 who is a prime Democratic election target in Pennsylvania this year, went to suburban Philadelphia (Montgomery County) this week to urge across-the-board tax cuts.

Ann Coulter | September 19, 2000

In a mark of how insanely tendentious the media have become, George W. Bush called Al Gore's bluff on the debate question, and somehow that makes Bush the idiot.

Mona Charen | September 19, 2000

(SET ITAL) What about that kiss? (END ITAL) It is widely assumed in America these days that women went into a collective swoon for Al Gore when he kissed his wife. But there is apparently no evidence to support this. A Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll asked whether people were familiar with The Kiss.

Debra J. Saunders | September 19, 2000

How delicious it has been to see Vice President Al Gore trash the entertainment industry for "false and deceptive advertising." Bill Bradley must have busted a gut laughing over that line.

Linda Chavez | September 19, 2000

Americans are better-educated than ever, according to a study released last week by the U.S. Census Bureau, but one group appears to lag far behind.

Bill Murchison | September 19, 2000

Now, look -- I don't care how it sounds to the world; we need to understand that Dr. Laura Schlessinger's critics have just one commitment ... to Truth.

Jacob Sullum | September 19, 2000

I remember staring at the paperback edition of Wilson Brian Key's 1973 bestseller "Subliminal Seduction," trying to see the nude woman in the ice cubes. I never could.

John Leo | September 19, 2000

Defenders of abortion rights think the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act is just another tactical ploy in the abortion wars. In part it is. Opponents of abortion want to see if the abortion lobby is really going to come out against a proposed law that simply says babies born alive are persons

William F. Buckley | September 19, 2000

The energy drought infuriates in part because there aren't many remedies fished up by intelligent analysis. But this doesn't mean there isn't anything to be done

David Limbaugh | September 18, 2000

George Bush's biggest problem is not Al Gore, but voter complacency stemming from our prosperity. Bush must remind voters why this election is vitally important.

Debra J. Saunders | September 18, 2000

Opponents of Proposition 38, the initiative that would grant $4,000-a-year vouchers to K-12 students to attend private school, argue, "Let's fix our public schools, not abandon them." They care about institutions.

Robert Novak | September 18, 2000

"Can you tell me," asked Jay Ziegler, a Clinton bureaucrat in Washington who has come home to California to be state director of Al Gore's campaign for president, "what Bush is doing here?"

Bruce Bartlett | September 18, 2000

Americans like to believe that important things happen here first. Consequently, they pay little attention to occurrences in other countries, believing that they are irrelevant.
