Charles Krauthammer | March 04, 2001

No. It's not the furniture. It's not the bridal registry. It's not the Carnegie Hall penthouse. It's not the Inauguration Day grandstanding. It's not the 11th hour plea-copping on his Lewinsky perjury. It's the pardons, stupid.

George Will | March 04, 2001

Disquieting rumors persist that some of President Bush's advisers are eager to sign a campaign finance ``reform" bill, or at least to avoid vetoing one. Bush should beware of what Edmund Burke called ``the irresistible operation of feeble councils."

David Limbaugh | March 03, 2001

While I absolutely love the subject of politics, sometimes I hate the practice of politics, such as is being employed by the Democratic leadership in its unprincipled opposition to President Bush's tax cut and overall budget plan.

Robert Novak | March 03, 2001

Democratic senators are no longer content with a death watch on the frail nonagenarian Republican, whose departure would mean Democratic control of the Senate for the first time since 1994.

Thomas Sowell | March 02, 2001

Any smell more subtle than ammonia or a sewage treatment plant is usually hard for me to detect. However, I happen to be able to smell gas escaping better than most people.

Michelle Malkin | March 02, 2001

What do you do the day after Mardi Gras? In Philadelphia and Seattle, you clear away broken glass, gather up empty tear gas containers, and wash the blood of drunken revelers off of ransacked streets.

Jonah Goldberg | March 02, 2001

Gjkjjksyh79&*%^*g. Whoops, sorry about that. My forehead hit the keyboard while I was reading President Bush's proposed budget, and I passed out from boredom.

Mona Charen | March 02, 2001

Here is what we believe: We believe that this society has forgotten how to discipline children, particularly boys.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 02, 2001

Watching our Gentleman President deliver his message of growth and tax cuts to a joint session of Congress the other night, I thought how relentless history's motions are ... and silent.

Bruce Bartlett | March 02, 2001

Abolition of the estate and gift tax, dubbed the "death tax" by its opponents, has been one of the highest priorities of Republicans in Congress for several years.

Ann Coulter | March 01, 2001

While ostentatiously pursuing an "investigation" of the Marc Rich pardon (which will lead precisely nowhere), Mary Jo White, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, has stubbornly refused to indict top Democratic and union officials directly implicated in a money-laundering scheme uncovered by her own office some years ago.

Thomas Sowell | March 01, 2001

Some people may have found it an inspiring example of social conscience when various super-rich people, such as the Rockefellers, came out publicly against repealing the taxes that the federal government levies against the property left by people who have died.

Larry Elder | March 01, 2001

Hollywood positively, unequivocally, without reservation condemns gay bashing. But Republican bashing; now that's different.

Cal Thomas | March 01, 2001

Listening to the reaction of congressional Democrats to President Bush's Tuesday night speech in which he said the people, not the government, know best how to spend their own money, one would think that the tax and spend party has finally seen the light.

Debra J. Saunders | March 01, 2001

In an era during which political activists only want to speak on issues that make them look like nice people -- save the whales, don't cut old Redwood trees -- few are eager to push for policies that facilitate medical research with lab animals.

Maggie Gallagher | March 01, 2001

Five years ago, Congress abolished the welfare entitlement and took new steps to move welfare mothers to work.

George Will | March 01, 2001

Advocates of affirmative action in higher education scored two debilitating triumphs in December when courts upheld the legality of racial preferences in admissions as administered at the University of Washington and the University of Michigan. A few more such victories and affirmative action will be completely incoherent.

Robert Novak | March 01, 2001

President Bush's first address to Congress Tuesday night doubled its intended time to a near Clinton-like length of close to 50 minutes, but there was not a word said about global warming.

Michelle Malkin | February 28, 2001

If you thought the musical offerings of the Backstreet Boys were hard on the ears, wait'll you hear them croon about their political pet causes.

Brent Bozell | February 28, 2001

It's a crazy world we live in, isn't it? The Clintons have participated in endless acts of corruption, from crooked land deals to miraculous hundred-thousand dollar cattle future bonanzas.

Jonah Goldberg | February 28, 2001

I have no great love for the SAT. I did OK, but not good enough to avoid getting rejected from every college I applied to. Ultimately, it was that awful math section. My bitterness aside, I still think it's a terrible idea to get rid of the SAT.

David Limbaugh | February 28, 2001

A novel defense has emerged for Bill Clinton's tawdry last-minute rash of pardons. Some are maintaining that since Clinton didn't grant a pardon in every case in which one of his major donors or relatives were pressing for it, he must not have been acting improperly in the ones he did grant.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 28, 2001

In earlier, simpler times, medical privacy was no problem. Your doctor recorded the date of your visit and his diagnosis and prescriptions in his inimitable illegible handwriting and put it safely in a manila folder where only he or his nurse would ever see it and nobody else could possibly read it.

Frank Gaffney | February 28, 2001

At his press conference last Thursday, President Bush reiterated a commitment he has made repeatedly in recent months: Saddam Hussein will not be allowed to have weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

Jack Kemp | February 28, 2001

Neither tax cuts nor interest rate cuts - as desirable as both may be - can stop the economy from shrinking, given current monetary policy by the Federal Reserve Board.

Bruce Bartlett | February 28, 2001

Democrats will play the old Washington game of calling reductions in the rate of growth of spending for any program a "cut."

William F. Buckley | February 28, 2001

At Harvard, professor Henry Wechsler's landmark college alcohol study revealed that binge drinking on college campuses was much more extensive than anyone believed.

Brent Bozell | February 27, 2001

The March issue of Brill's Content, the magazine that covers and criticizes the media industry, includes a long article by Jim Edwards about the ongoing effort from some quarters of corporate America to provide more options for family television viewing.

Mona Charen | February 27, 2001

The New York Times, to its credit really, has given front-page treatment to an issue that should not actually trouble hard-line pro-choice types -- the question of what to do with abandoned embryos.

Cal Thomas | February 27, 2001

If President Bush wants an idea of what he's up against as he seeks to refund some of the overpayments taxpayers have been making to government, he should look across the Potomac at the dilemma now facing Virginia Republican Governor Jim Gilmore.

Debra J. Saunders | February 27, 2001

If the feds had their way, environmental consultant John J. Zentner, 46, would be in jail right now.

Linda Chavez | February 27, 2001

The first salvos in a new race war will be launched this week when the Census Bureau releases its preliminary figures on the 2000 census. I'm not talking about riots in the streets, but a more sophisticated battle waged via computer programs to pack minorities into neat, compact voting blocks.

Jacob Sullum | February 27, 2001

Before I get into the constitutional issues raised by police surveillance using infrared cameras, I'll answer the question that's on everyone's mind: Can they tell when you're having sex?

Bill Murchison | February 27, 2001

The latest "education president" (Lyndon Johnson, somewhat inauspiciously, was the first) has high and honorable intentions about upgrading public education. George W. Bush wants better results than we are accustomed to from the public schools.

Jonah Goldberg | February 26, 2001

In 1995 Carlos Vignali was sentenced to 15 years in prison for helping mastermind a scheme to distribute millions of dollars worth of crack cocaine. Six years later, on Bill Clinton's last day in office, he let Vignali free. When first questioned, Clinton's aides justified the decision by pointing out that this was Vignali's first offense and drug laws are too harsh in America.

Suzanne Fields | February 26, 2001

Where were you when Dale Earnhardt hit the wall at Daytona? His death has been compared to that of James Dean, Elvis and Princess Di. Those in the know, know where they were.

William F. Buckley | February 26, 2001

Where on earth do we go, in the matter of Bill Clinton?

Bruce Bartlett | February 26, 2001

Many commentators, both for and against George W. Bush's proposed tax cut, have compared his plan to Ronald Reagan's in 1981. While there is a similarity, in that both plans cut marginal income-tax rates across the board, the underlying philosophy is different.

Robert Novak | February 26, 2001

One week after the escalated U.S.-British bombing of Iraq, silence pervades the normally garrulous capital. There has been little approbation and hardly any criticism from Congress.

John Leo | February 26, 2001

Another nude Jesus. The Brooklyn Museum is at it again. No, it's not porn photos and elephant dung on a painting of the Virgin Mary. This time it's a naked female Jesus at the Last Supper.

George Will | February 25, 2001

This Wednesday the court will hear arguments in another case which, if sensibly decided, might effectively refute the Medford, N.J., public school that considered Zachary's literary tastes in first grade unconstitutional.
