No means yes. In the world according to Al Gore and his legal team, no doesn't mean no.

Robert Novak | November 25, 2000

Even before the Democratic-appointed Florida Supreme Court ruled for Al Gore, leaders of the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature were meeting privately to discuss possible legislative intervention in the presidential recount.

In the annals of music history, Marilyn Manson won't even warrant a footnote. But the freakish shock rocker released a new album this month that has some religious groups understandably up in arms.

Brent Bozell | November 24, 2000

California Supreme Court Justice Rose Bird became a national symbol in the 1970s and '80s as the quintessential outrageous liberal activist judge, putting aside all legal precedents in the service of ideology.

David Limbaugh | November 24, 2000

So, some of you are still buying into Al Gore's claim that he is fighting for the little people?

Oliver North | November 24, 2000

When the Framers of our Constitution were working out how to select our presidents, they should have included an expiration date. This year's election has taken so long to decide, it has thrown off my entire Christmas shopping schedule.

Ann Coulter | November 23, 2000

After having denounced the Florida Supreme Court as a corrupt and dishonest kangaroo court long before its lawless ruling earlier this week, I feel a kind of relief that they didn't prove me wrong. Still it's breathtaking how totally detached from any sort of legal reasoning its decision is.

Thomas Sowell | November 23, 2000

The Florida Supreme Court has disgraced itself and undermined election laws, not just for this election in Florida but for future elections across the country.

Larry Elder | November 23, 2000

What to think of the Florida Supreme Court? The court ruled unanimously that manual recounts in pro-Gore Democratic counties shall continue.

David Limbaugh | November 23, 2000

For those of you who insist on taking the position -- regardless of the evidence -- that Gore and Bush (and more broadly, Republicans and Democrats) are guilty of equal misconduct and heavy-handedness in the Florida post-election chaos, I urge you to consider this evidence:

Maggie Gallagher | November 23, 2000

Vice President Al Gore stands before us, dishonored and self-indicted by the sanctimonious rhetoric he uses to mask his naked drive for power.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 23, 2000

Some months ago here in this city of fantasy and bilge, Professor Harry Jaffa, the eminent Lincoln scholar, spoke at a conference on American history. What he said flew in the face of those who esteem Bill Clinton as "one of our greatest presidents," to lift a line from Honest Al.

Robert Novak | November 23, 2000

Alan Greenspan, the revered chairman of the Federal Reserve Board who once was a highly partisan Republican, takes the non-political nature of his office seriously enough not to choose sides in the presidential long count.

Michelle Malkin | November 22, 2000

Stanley "Tookie" Williams was nominated for the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize this week. His supporters call him "wise," "compassionate," "well-read," and "wide-eyed like a child."

Walter E. Williams | November 22, 2000

The controversy surrounding this year's presidential election has led to calls to abandon the Constitution's Article II provisions for the Electoral College to select presidents.

Brent Bozell | November 22, 2000

Some conservatives tend to overstate when arguing the case against modern culture. No one movie, television show, novel, song or painting, no matter how corrosive, hastens more than infinitesimally the demise of Western civilization, and most works of art don't do even that.

Debra J. Saunders | November 22, 2000

Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris may have been exercising her lawful discretion by choosing not to recognize hand-counted presidential ballots from three Democratic counties, but the Florida Supreme Court was right to stop her from certifying the election on Saturday.

Linda Chavez | November 22, 2000

There will be three fewer plates at Thanksgiving dinner this year. After years of expanding the family table to include first daughters-in-law, then grandchildren, our oldest son and his family have now decided to strike out on their own.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 22, 2000

Are big media trying to steal the presidency and put Al Gore in the White House? The 2000 election confirms the widespread public perception that the media are advocates, not reporters.

William F. Buckley | November 22, 2000

In any normal country, Gore would be acclaimed the winner for the simple reason that he got a majority of the people who voted on Nov. 7.

Bruce Bartlett | November 22, 2000

On Nov. 19, the New York Times published a very interesting front-page story about a growing movement among businesses to stop withholding income taxes for their employees.

Jack Kemp | November 22, 2000

While everyone watches Florida as we attempt to choose the next president of the United States, we shouldn't forget that we still have a very active, engaged and ideologically committed president in Washington, D.C.

Ann Coulter | November 21, 2000

Like many people, I've been on tenterhooks waiting for New York's junior senator to weigh in on the Electoral College. Just days after her election, Hillary finally ended the suspense. She vowed to combat the Electoral College so that "the popular vote, the will of the people" will reign triumphant.

Thomas Sowell | November 21, 2000

Incessant claims by Vice President Al Gore and his spokesmen that they want "every vote to count" is belied by everything the Gore camp has done in Florida.

Mona Charen | November 21, 2000

During the run-up to Nov. 7, my 7-year-old son, David, kept asking whether someone would win by just one vote. It happened once, David insisted.

Jacob Sullum | November 21, 2000

I have a confession to make. The other day, I was reading about a recently enacted New York law that, starting next spring, will prohibit telemarketers from calling phone numbers on a list maintained by the state's Consumer Protection Board.

Bill Murchison | November 21, 2000

"It could be worse,'' as the guy dangling by his fingertips from the 47th story window ledge observed. "At least it's not raining.''

John Leo | November 21, 2000

Now, more than ever, it is important for all Americans to know their chads. As a public service, here is a voter's guide:

Robert Novak | November 21, 2000

It was 4:30 a.m. in Jacksonville, Fla., Saturday when two Democratic lawyers pumped their fists in the air and congratulated each other. The local canvassing board had just thrown out overseas absentee ballots of 44 U.S. service personnel. Their defect: no postmarks.

William F. Buckley | November 21, 2000

You have heard of pure scientists? They are the originators of such pure thoughts that eventuate, a generation later, into such lifesaving practical products as atom bombs and lightbulbs and penicillin.

Bruce Bartlett | November 20, 2000

Whatever the ultimate outcome of the presidential election, it is safe to assume that there is going to be a serious debate next year on replacing the Electoral College.
