David Limbaugh | February 23, 2002

President Bush has been getting plenty of flak from the fainthearted and morally impaired for his designation of North Korea, Iran and Iraq as an axis of evil. It might interest you to find that in large part he’s following recent historical precedent.

Thomas Sowell | February 21, 2002

The holiday we have just celebrated, now called "President's Day," was within living memory called "George Washington's Birthday."

Brent Bozell | February 21, 2002

One of our society's sorriest trends of recent years is the tendency to take a violent crime and shift the blame from the guilty criminal to some nonviolent segment of society.

Cal Thomas | February 21, 2002

As part of its welfare reform campaign, the Bush administration wants to spend $100 million annually to promote marriage among the poor, who account for the largest percentage of out-of-wedlock births and what we used to call "broken homes."

Suzanne Fields | February 21, 2002

Emmett Tyrrell | February 21, 2002

The very day that I heard Mike Tyson is about to be licensed to fight in our nation's capital, I read the following on the front page of the esteemed Wall Street Journal

George Will | February 21, 2002

Campaign finance reformers have had their way in Washington, which should keep them content--or at least muted--for maybe two years.

At last weekend's California Democratic convention in Los Angeles, delegates received "Dick Cheney" buttons with the two "e's" in Cheney replaced by the discredited Enron logo.

On Feb. 19, the press's coverage of Enron suddenly turned serious.

Armstrong Williams | February 21, 2002

NBA Commissioner David Stern has been hard at work the past decade or so marketing the National Basketball Association as an extension of urban playgrounds, where the play is always brash, stylish and up-tempo.

Michelle Malkin | February 20, 2002

Jonah Goldberg | February 20, 2002

I bought Pat Buchanan's new book, "The Death of the West," on Valentine's Day (though if I'd given it to my second-generation American wife as a romantic gift, she'd have beaten me to death with it).

With his Axis of Evil speech threatening Iraq, Iran and North Korea with war if they deploy "weapons of mass destruction," Mr. Bush burned his bridges.

Debra J. Saunders | February 20, 2002

Cleaning up campaign finance is a dirty job. It's dirty because the public wants to be lied to. Voters want to believe that all Washington has to do is pass a single reform bill and the money scandals will go away.

Never underestimate the ability of unelected bureaucrats to overturn the expressed will of the people if it threatens their power.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 20, 2002

It is becoming increasingly clear that many of the activities that got Enron in trouble are pervasive throughout corporate America.

John McCaslin | February 20, 2002

Since the United States is encountering numerous obstacles moving food to starving Afghans - from inadequate roads to a lack of trucks and refrigeration, to name a few - then why not let the food move itself?

Jack Kemp | February 20, 2002

The Bush administration is doing its best to address the so-called global warming "problem" without creating unnecessarily harmful side effects.

Debra J. Saunders | February 18, 2002

It's an ugly job, but somebody's got to do it. Stand up for Greta Van Susteren's new face, that is.

Larry Kudlow | February 18, 2002

There they go again. Those nutty bond traders believe that Alan Greenspan -- after cutting interest rates a whopping 11 times in 2001

John Leo | February 18, 2002

The campaign reform bill may have been "sweeping," as the media told us, but one of the things being swept away was the right of independent groups to take to the airwaves with ads lobbying for their causes around election time.

Robert Novak | February 18, 2002

House Republicans, the party's rock the past year, cracked last week. Not only did GOP discipline on campaign finance break down

Joel Mowbray | February 18, 2002

Although most of the criticism of Ted Turner's latest ramblings has centered on his labeling the September 11th hijackers "brave", one of his other remarks was much more troubling, though there was a grain of truth--and I emphasize "grain"--worth exploring.

Kathleen Parker | February 18, 2002
