Ann Coulter | December 08, 2000

Despite morale-boosting claims in the mainstream media that the U.S. Supreme Court's unanimous ruling didn't really do anything -- or, as Al Gore put it ("Twilight Zone" theme music here), was "neutral," perhaps even "favorable" -- the opinion kicked the air out of the Supreme Court of Florida (SCOFLA).

Thomas Sowell | December 08, 2000

A recent Census Bureau study of incomes in the United States not only reveals some interesting facts about the economic well-being of Americans, it reveals even more about the mindset of our times, especially among the intelligentsia.

Michelle Malkin | December 08, 2000

"Breast is best." No, it's not the new slogan for Hooters restaurant. It's the mantra of breast-feeding advocates who promote their cause with a cult-like fervor around the world. Their extremism must be condemned.

Brent Bozell | December 08, 2000

As our television screens enumerate the elongating days of this neverending election -- Day 29, Day 30, like an Iranian hostage crisis -- will there ever come a point when the media will turn out the lights for Al Gore?

Mona Charen | December 08, 2000

The country is already paying a price for Al Gore's unprecedented war for the White House. The price can be measured in cynicism.

Oliver North | December 08, 2000

It's rare today for a conservative to have anything good to say about broadcast TV or Hollywood.

Maggie Gallagher | December 08, 2000

It's over. The court-ordered body blows have left Al Gore's post-election litigation strategy a bad joke. Butterfly ballots? Legal. Yet another recount? Illegal. Evidence of "illegality, dishonesty, gross negligence, improper influence, coercion or fraud" in this election count? Zilch, ruled Judge Sauls.

Thomas Sowell | December 07, 2000

One of the most important facts about the Florida election has been ignored in most of the media: There was nothing unusual, much less unique, about the election in Florida.

Michelle Malkin | December 07, 2000

Everything I learned about the Amish, I learned from the old Harrison Ford movie, "Witness." Members of this pacifist religious community don't use electricity or listen to music. The women wear bonnets. The men drive black buggies.

Brent Bozell | December 07, 2000

Late last month, the pay-cable network Showtime had ample reason to be excited. It was about to launch "Queer as Folk," which it hopes will become its first so-called signature series, i.e., what "Sex and the City" and "The Sopranos" have been to the longtime king of pay-cable-land, HBO.

Larry Elder | December 07, 2000

The headline announced the latest disaster: "State Justices Deal New Setback to Affirmative Action."

Emmett Tyrrell | December 07, 2000

"Neither of the candidates has behaved well during this shabby November" -- thus spoke that courtly gentleman of the English-speaking media, The Economist.

Robert Novak | December 07, 2000

Democratic politicians are standing by Al Gore's dogged efforts to still win the presidency in 2000. But 2004 is another matter. If he can't make it this time, the party faithful want no part of Gore four years from now.

Walter E. Williams | December 06, 2000

We've had close presidential elections before, but this one is emblematic of dangerous, unbridgeable and growing gaps among the American people. Some of this can be seen by examining a map showing U.S. counties won by George Bush and those won by Al Gore.

David Limbaugh | December 06, 2000

I truly hope I'm wrong about this, but I have come to conclude that Gore's perpetual post-election tantrum is just a prelude to the next four years. Democrats, I'm afraid, are just getting warmed up for their Four Years War.

Phyllis Schlafly | December 06, 2000

The collapse of the global warming treaty negotiations in The Hague recently illustrates the folly of the Clinton-Gore globalists who want to give a consortium of foreigners the power to regulate the American standard of living.

Jack Kemp | December 06, 2000

French President Jacques Chirac told participants at the failed Hague negotiations on global warming that the Kyoto Protocol, linchpin of the Third Way movement, was "the first component of an authentic global governance."

Bruce Bartlett | December 06, 2000

In normal times, there would be two big items in the press that are not now major news stories. First would be announcements of top cabinet appointments by the president-elect.

William F. Buckley | December 06, 2000

One radio commentator, in the thick of the judicial flurry on Monday, commented icily that some Republicans seemed to be saying that there was no national right to vote in presidential elections, that the logic of the position of Justice Scalia was as simple as that if the legislature of the state of Florida ruled that no one was qualified to vote for president, so would it be.

Mona Charen | December 05, 2000

There is a sense in which the very fact that a presidential election contest had to be heard by the Supreme Court at all was bad for our democracy.

Linda Chavez | December 05, 2000

As anyone who has been involved in a court case knows, the lawyers' interests do not always coincide with the client's. Certainly Al Gore's interests, not to mention the country's, are not necessarily the same as David Boies' and the battalion of lawyers Gore has hired to represent him.

Bill Murchison | December 05, 2000

If you were awaiting -- better yet, biting your fingernails in expectation of -- another column on the election, forget it. We pundits are pundited-out.

John Leo | December 05, 2000

Most of us pay little attention to squabbles in the academic world, but the dispute over Napoleon Chagnon is one to watch.

Robert Novak | December 05, 2000

Just how powerful is Dick Cheney in George W. Bush's incipient administration? In response, a member of the president-elect's inner circle raised his eyes skyward, signifying no limit.

Ann Coulter | December 04, 2000

It won't be easy for Republicans to lose this one. By sheer dint of hard work, they're still trying to pull it off. Republicans are good at losing. Stick with what you're good at.

Mona Charen | December 04, 2000

They told us, when Clarence Thomas was about to be confirmed as an associate justice of the Supreme Court without a real fight, that we had to take Anita Hill's allegations very seriously.

Debra J. Saunders | December 04, 2000

The challenge that faced the young country was clear: "Could she produce sufficient men of insight and good will who would persuade both the governing class and people to face squarely the pressing problems of the day and seek solutions for the common good even when this might involve some sacrifice of individual gain by leaders and common man alike?"

Maggie Gallagher | December 04, 2000

During the campaign, Tipper Gore spoke movingly of how supportive her husband was during the dark days of her mental distress. Does anybody but me wonder if she might soon have to return the favor?

Bruce Bartlett | December 04, 2000

Now that President-elect George W. Bush has started formal transition planning, the question of who will get what job in the cabinet is going to occupy most of his attention.

William F. Buckley | December 04, 2000

Suppose -- the reader is requested to luxuriate in the metaphor -- suppose that The New York Times simply refused to acknowledge that George W. Bush was the president of the United States ...

Robert Novak | December 04, 2000

Al Gore's high-priced lawyers were surprisingly unimpressive in Tallahassee Saturday as they presented their case in circuit court for manual recounts of heavily Democratic counties.

It won't be easy for Republicans to lose this one. By sheer dint of hard work, they're still trying to pull it off. Republicans are good at losing. Stick with what you're good at.

David Limbaugh | December 03, 2000

Al Gore is seeking to perpetuate a number of myths in furtherance of his obsessive quest to fulfill his childhood dream. He is speaking with forked tongue because the truth does not benefit his presidential ambitions.

Maggie Gallagher | December 03, 2000
