Michelle Malkin | October 06, 2000

Grab a bag of popcorn and get out your hankies. This one's a real tear-jerker -- for taxpayers, that is.

Mona Charen | October 06, 2000

Everyone knows that Al Gore's biggest problem is a tendency to lie, which is why his resort to lies in the first debate is almost creepy. For several weeks, the news has been full of Gore's little exaggerations and fibs.

Ann Coulter | October 05, 2000

Apparently the key to being described as a masterful debater in modern America is to repeatedly heave loud sighs into your microphone whenever your opponent is speaking.

Thomas Sowell | October 05, 2000

Too often the first presidential debate looked like an Al Gore monologue, with footnotes by George W. Bush, while moderator Jim Lehrer looked on like an innocent bystander.

Michelle Malkin | October 05, 2000

In San Diego, they've turned the public schools into full-service baby sitters at a cost of more than $15 million per year. The program is called "6 to 6." Every elementary and middle school student is eligible for sun-up to sundown care.

Brent Bozell | October 05, 2000

Why do so many TV reporters think they exist in order to sell us on the virtues of government entitlements? The latest fad is the call to add a universal prescription-drug subsidy to Medicare. Suddenly, it's become The Issue We Must All Ponder.

Larry Elder | October 05, 2000

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright wants a female president, and a Los Angeles politician wants female cops. What's wrong with this picture?

Debra J. Saunders | October 05, 2000

This isn't the silly season; it's the senior season. Presidential candidates are falling all over themselves trying to persuade seniors that they will give them more freebies -- whether the seniors need a new handout or not.

Maggie Gallagher | October 05, 2000

Maybe you can't judge a book by its cover, but boy, you can sure tell a lot from its critics.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 05, 2000

Underlying most political questions are facts, strange as that sounds of those absorbed with only the buffoonery of politics. Facile politicians and political commentators do best when they can avoid these facts or vaporize them with rhetoric.

William F. Buckley | October 05, 2000

Dick Cheney has a very tough challenge ahead of him in his debate with Joe Lieberman on Thursday. It is, no less: Hasn't Senator Lieberman seriously diminished his moral credibility?

Robert Novak | October 05, 2000

When George W. Bush was speaking during the first presidential debate Tuesday night, millions of Americans got an eyeful of Al Gore. The vice president was grimacing, chuckling, snorting, and in one instance, rolling his eyes.

Walter E. Williams | October 04, 2000

Quite frankly the behavior of some women has gotten out of hand, and it's because we men have become cowards and wimps. The more men take of double-standards, ridiculous demands and just plain nonsense, the more these women are going to give.

David Limbaugh | October 04, 2000

In his debate against Dan Quayle and Admiral Stockdale in 1992, Al Gore said, "We have an environmental crisis, a health insurance crisis, (and) substandard education. It is time for a change." It's eight years later, and Gore is still carping about the same crises. Where has he been for the last eight years?

Linda Chavez | October 04, 2000

It must be the silly season, what else explains the following news items? "A 6-foot Mr. Potato Head statue, one of dozens dotting Rhode Island as part of a tourism campaign, will be taken down because of complaints that the grinning, brown-skinned figure appeared racist," reports the Associated Press.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 04, 2000

It's not likely that most people would let their children browse in an "adult" bookstore. But have you ever considered the danger of letting them browse in your local public library?

Bill Murchison | October 04, 2000

There wasn't that much to the matter, was there? Just 20 slaves from Africa -- agricultural types anyway -- bound to enjoy the fragrant tobacco fields in the colony of Virginia. Just the merest handful.

Bruce Bartlett | October 04, 2000

A number of press reports have recently warned mutual fund investors about the problem of capital gains distributions on their fund shares. Under current law, such distributions can impose additional taxes even on investors who never sold any of their shares.

John Leo | October 04, 2000

1. Last week Al Gore, father of the Internet, revealed that he was in on the establishment of the strategic petroleum reserve. What else did he help create?

Jack Kemp | October 04, 2000

The presidential debates are the Super Bowl of politics. With the race coming down to the line, they will decide the swing vote in this election and thus who leads American into this amazing century ahead.

Ann Coulter | October 03, 2000

Like everyone else in America, I had never really listened to the arguments of the drug legalization crowd because ... it's not going to happen. These people are like scholars whose area of expertise is an obscure bug in a Third World country.

Mona Charen | October 03, 2000

News reports about the FDA's decision to approve RU-486 have been all over the map, but one thing nearly everyone in the press seems to hope is that the availability of the abortion pill will take the issue out of politics.

Maggie Gallagher | October 03, 2000

Here he is with a surging economy, a president at his beck and call, a kissable wife -- and that pesky challenger George W. Bush is now pulling ahead again in national polls.

Jacob Sullum | October 03, 2000

When I was a boy, I thought Isaac Asimov would be the ideal president. Not only was he a great science fiction writer, but he was really smart.

Maybe you're tired of the Olympics. Maybe you've seen enough gymnastics, weightlifting and beach volleyball over the past two weeks to last you until 2004.

Debra J. Saunders | October 02, 2000

Since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has awarded some 4,000 schools Blue Ribbons because they are "models of excellence and equity." The feds boast, "The Blue Ribbon nomination package pulls together what is cutting edge in education today."

Robert Novak | October 02, 2000

When the Senate Republican Conference convened last Wednesday for its weekly senators-only luncheon, Sen. Phil Gramm rose to state his unique views about the session-ending confusion in Congress. That momentarily turned the GOP malaise on Capitol Hill into pandemonium.

Bruce Bartlett | October 02, 2000

On Sept. 26, the U.S. Census Bureau released data on poverty and income for 1999. In its press statement, the Bureau emphasized the rise in median household income to its highest level ever, and decline in the poverty rate to its lowest level since 1979.
