Ann Coulter | October 12, 2000

Al Gore's idea of "standing up to 'Big Oil'" is for all of us to ride bikes and wear heavier coats in the winter. We're supposed to ratchet back our expectations so that we don't disturb some migratory bird by drilling for oil in Alaska.

Thomas Sowell | October 12, 2000

Many people hear only one side of the story of our public schools, because only the teachers' unions have both the incentives and the millions of dollars required to produce sustained advertising campaigns about education.

Michelle Malkin | October 12, 2000

The West Nile virus came to my neck of the woods last week, when four dead crows turned up in southern Maryland and Washington, D.C. Am I scared? Yes, the possible presence of infected mosquitoes in my lakeside neighborhood is worrisome.

Brent Bozell | October 12, 2000

Democrats are desperate and afraid. The reality that their nominee for president has a compulsive tendency to make things up to make himself look good is sinking in.

Larry Elder | October 12, 2000

This just in: The government discovered that moviemakers want people to see movies. Worse yet, they do so through the use of "gratuitous violence."

Emmett Tyrrell | October 12, 2000

A quiet miracle has taken place in this election. The electorate has sensed in Al Gore a serious flaw that Official Washington did not find exceptional. Al lies.

Ann Coulter | October 11, 2000

With all the chatter about who won the first presidential debate, ask yourself this question: What would have had to happen in those debates for the media to say George Bush won?

Walter E. Williams | October 11, 2000

It's indisputably beyond question that black Americans have a level of loyalty to the Democratic Party and its big-government policies second to none. They connect political power with economic power.

David Limbaugh | October 11, 2000

I'm sure Al Gore's barb at the wealthiest 1 percent was focus group-tested. But did his choreographers tell the group he was going to say it 10 times? I wonder what kinds of people are attracted to such gratuitous hate-speech anyway.

Linda Chavez | October 11, 2000

With all the focus on female voters in this year's election, it's a wonder no one has mentioned the presidential candidates' positions on a woman's right to choose -- her mode of transportation, that is.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 11, 2000

Denmark's dramatic decision to ditch the euro holds an important lesson for both Europeans and Americans: The march toward the global economy is fundamentally anti-democratic.

Bill Murchison | October 11, 2000

The urgency of the occasion tends to sometimes overwhelm -- debates, polls, Social Security lockboxes and Al Gore's snorts and sighs.

John Leo | October 11, 2000

Is a major revolt against school testing and standards under way? Yes, but only in the media.

Jack Kemp | October 11, 2000

The vice presidential debate between Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman was a fabulous discussion between two statesmen, two good friends of mine and two distinct points of view about our future.

William F. Buckley | October 11, 2000

The vote of American Catholics is hotly pursued. There is nothing among Catholics approaching the unity of Jews (Democratic) or blacks (ditto). Their fluidity (a slight majority went GOP for Reagan, and Democratic for Clinton in 1996) make them prime targets of political recruiters.

Bruce Bartlett | October 11, 2000

With well more than 50 percent of Americans having investments in the stock market, the question of how the election will impact on stocks is the key issue for many voters.

Jacob Sullum | October 10, 2000

In 1997, after renting space for nearly two decades, St. Luke's Pentecostal Church of North Hempstead, N.Y., finally found a permanent home. Or so its congregants thought.

Brent Bozell | October 09, 2000

Some like to think of the Olympic Games as the non-political antidote to geopolitical strife. Not so. On the official, bureaucratic level, ideology and the Olympics are becoming increasingly, and ever more ridiculously, intertwined.

David Limbaugh | October 09, 2000

To me the only thing more frightening than Al Gore's book "Earth in the Balance" is that he reportedly believes the stuff in it. There's another thing about it, though, that bothers me even more.

Oliver North | October 09, 2000

Now that George W. Bush and Albert A. Gore have had their "Bash in Beantown," and Dick and Joe have had their "Clash in Kentucky" -- who, but those of us paid to do so, will bother watching next week's face-off at Wake Forest University?

Debra J. Saunders | October 09, 2000

Washington once again is drunk with power. This week, House and Senate conferees agreed to set a national .08 blood alcohol level to define drunken driving, and to penalize states that do not adopt the standard by holding back on some of their share of federal highway funds.

Robert Novak | October 09, 2000

Although Al Gore's snorting while George W. Bush was speaking in last Tuesday's presidential debate appeared to be something new for the vice president, it stretches back to the first of his 42 campaign debates.

William F. Buckley | October 09, 2000

Once again, on the subject of abortion, the big players tended to miss the point. When that subject is raised in political circumstances raw fear abounds. Some voters are guided by strong emotions on the matter. This brings on circumspect language.

Bruce Bartlett | October 09, 2000

In his debate with George W. Bush on Oct. 3, Al Gore relentlessly attacked Bush's tax plan as a giveaway to the rich. Based on an analysis by the liberal group Citizens for Tax Justice, Gore charged that the top 1 percent of taxpayers -- those with incomes above $319,000 -- would receive 42.6 percent of the total tax cut.
