Nice people were outraged when vandals chainsawed Luna the Humboldt Redwood. Mean people care about the fate of loggers and their families.

Robert Novak | December 23, 2000

George W. Bush's decision to name Virginia Gov. James Gilmore as the Republican Party's general chairman reflects the reality that Karl Rove, the president-elect's longtime political lieutenant, really will be running the GOP.

Michelle Malkin | December 22, 2000

What has gotten into Republicans? Watching them bow and scrape in the spine-numbing spirit of bipartisanship is like watching a Beltway version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." The GOP pod people, with their glazed eyes and frozen smiles, are taking over.

Brent Bozell | December 22, 2000

As we look ahead to the weird new age without a Clinton White House ruining our daily breakfast, we still have unfinished business. Specifically: Will there be any pardons?

Mona Charen | December 22, 2000

The Monster is stretched out on the floor beside me in his usual undignified sleeping pose (belly up, legs splayed). Let me take advantage of this rare moment of peace to offer advice to parents out there who are considering a puppy -- DON'T DO IT!

Oliver North | December 22, 2000

Now here's a thought for Christmas. At this time of year, most people across the country are thinking about Christmas traditions, while in Washington, people are contemplating Christmas transitions.

Ann Coulter | December 21, 2000

One flashy book deal and Hillary is like a sailor on payday, infected with envy and avarice. Except the thing is: Mad Meg -- the giddiest member of the nouveau rich -- isn't that rich.

Thomas Sowell | December 21, 2000

Even those of us who have been complaining for years about the bias and shallowness of the media should admit that we never expected the media to be quite so grossly biased or so unbelievably shallow as they have been about the outcome of the recent presidential election.

Brent Bozell | December 21, 2000

The big loser for the Democrats in Election 2000 was, of course, Al Gore. He was given the coattails of a (perceived) economic miracle to run on; the biggest financial war chest in the party's history to run with...

Larry Elder | December 21, 2000

Reverend Jesse Jackson recently phoned president-elect George W. Bush. Presumably, Jackson called to begin a working relationship. Remember, the black vote went almost exclusively to Al Gore, accounting for nearly 20 percent of Gore's votes.

Maggie Gallagher | December 21, 2000

It's almost Christmas. Quick tell me: What are the names for the first four books of the New Testament?

Emmett Tyrrell | December 21, 2000

I assume that President-elect George W. Bush recognizes that it is not owing to the recent election's aberrations that Official Washington and its Democratic eminences view his presidency as illegitimate.

Robert Novak | December 21, 2000

Rare conservative adulation of the U.S. Supreme Court for ending the Florida recount ought to be modulated. Two Reagan-appointed justices -- Sandra Day O'Connor and Anthony Kennedy -- did not contribute to the legitimacy of George W. Bush's presidency.

Michelle Malkin | December 20, 2000

This Christmas Eve, children across the heartland will go to bed with visions of chokeholds and body slams pounding in their heads. They will dream of unwrapping such jolly delights as "WWF No Mercy" and "WWF Smackdown 2."

Walter E. Williams | December 20, 2000

Democrats have no constituency more loyal than black Americans. Much of that loyalty is delivered by black elected officials, civil-rights organizations and church leaders such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

David Limbaugh | December 20, 2000

In this year's inevitable election post-mortem, I think Republicans should seriously consider why they haven't been able to break the race barrier. Given their new president, they couldn't be better positioned to tackle this problem.

Bruce Bartlett | December 20, 2000

On Saturday, President-elect George W. Bush finally was able to announce his first cabinet appointment, selecting Colin Powell as his Secretary of State.

Jack Kemp | December 20, 2000

To both President-elect George Bush and Vice President Al Gore, I offer Winston Churchill's profound and comforting thought that "Victory is never final, defeat is never fatal, it's courage that counts."

Thomas Sowell | December 19, 2000

What should be a joyful Christmas season has become, for too many people, an exhausting shopping ordeal. Battling the holiday crowds in the malls is only part of the problem. Finding a present that fits each person on your list can become a mental burden.

Mona Charen | December 19, 2000

No one has mastered the fine Yiddish art of (SET ITAL) chutzpah (END ITAL) like the Rev. Jesse Jackson. Having spent November and December stoking the fires of racial suspicion and hatred, he then places a call to President-elect Bush to offer his guidance on racial "healing."

Linda Chavez | December 19, 2000

It's not that I've ever been one of those people who finished their Christmas shopping months early, but this year I'll be lucky if I'm done by New Year's -- 2002.

Phyllis Schlafly | December 19, 2000

The U.S. Supreme Court has taken a bold step toward returning Florida's election process to sanity. By halting the 11th hour partial hand recount, it stopped a reckless judicial attempt to elect Al Gore and potentially disenfranchise 6 million Florida voters.

Jacob Sullum | December 19, 2000

According to a federal appeals court, Cleveland's school voucher program is unconstitutional because it's not generous enough. That, at least, was the implication of a recent decision in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit ruled that the program violates the separation of church and state.

Bill Murchison | December 19, 2000

It is no bad thing to remember that the Christian religion began as a family affair -- mom, dad and baby boy.

Ann Coulter | December 18, 2000

It was a nice speech, albeit five weeks late: "And I'd like to give a special thanks to all my supporters who worked so hard to steal the election in Florida, including David Boies, whom I'll never hire again even to wash my car."

Brent Bozell | December 18, 2000

It is a sad indictment of our times that at this most sacred time of year there are those determined to ruin it.

Debra J. Saunders | December 18, 2000

Imagine that you have worked for years to develop a strain of rice that contains vitamin A in a world where an estimated 100 million children under age 5 suffer from vitamin A deficiency.

John Leo | December 18, 2000

The election that wouldn't end finally concluded with a memorable image: confused TV reporters standing in the dark, fumbling for meaning in a strange, six-opinion U.S. Supreme Court decision that nobody could quite figure out.

Robert Novak | December 18, 2000

Ever since Al Gore conceded the election, the buzz has spread through the capital that George W. Bush's biggest problem in Congress is his fellow Texas Republican, House Majority Whip Tom DeLay.

Bruce Bartlett | December 18, 2000

Although Al Gore's concession last week officially ended his quest for the presidency, it has not stopped some of his supporters from continuing their efforts on his behalf.
