David Limbaugh | November 09, 2002

It would be pundit-malpractice not to take a stab at why the elections turned out so well for Republicans and what lessons they should take from them. So here goes.

Robert Novak | November 09, 2002

Bill Clinton, campaigning in behalf of six Democratic governor candidates during the last few days before Nov. 5, batted only .167. Five of them lost Tuesday.

Thomas Sowell | November 08, 2002

Cant has become the norm in discussions of any issue involving race or ethnicity. However, a new book by Linda Chavez -- a memoir of her own remarkable life -- should make it inescapably clear what counterproductive and even vile things have been going on in the name of racial betterment.

Michelle Malkin | November 08, 2002

Here is a story of two trials and how they were covered in the news. Or not covered. You tell me what it says about the media's twisted values.

Jonah Goldberg | November 08, 2002

The election results were great news. The unanswered question is: Great news for whom?

Mona Charen | November 08, 2002

How can this have happened? President Bush, the Democrats have been telling us, is such a moron that he can't speak. Why, he's such a bumbler that it's impossible to believe he really runs the White House.

Debra J. Saunders | November 08, 2002

Call it leadership. The Dems were slamming President Bush for stumping for congressional candidates while he was trying to drum up support for U.S. military action against Iraq. Ignoring the clamor, Dubya didn't falter.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 08, 2002

I mistakenly wrote two weeks ago, "that enough seats will actually go to the Republicans to give them a one-seat majority in the Senate." My mistake -- it now appears Republicans have a two-seat majority in the Senate.

Jacob Sullum | November 08, 2002

If a convicted child molester moved into the house across the street, I'd want to know. But I'd also want to know if my new neighbor had been convicted of homicide, assault, robbery, burglary, larceny or fraud.

Rich Lowry | November 08, 2002

Get over the references to him as "the president select," the jokes about elderly, Jewish Pat Buchanan voters, the stories about blacks being kept away from the polls by dogs.

Charles Krauthammer | November 08, 2002

The message of the 2002 election is that the Democrats remain brain dead, and that ideas--lack of ideas--have consequences.

Marvin Olasky | November 08, 2002

Smack! Whack! Wallop! Election night in Austin, Texas, began with bodies slamming into each other at full speed.

Ann Coulter | November 07, 2002

It's hard to say whether election night was worse for Saddam Hussein or Barbra Streisand. Apparently America doesn't want to surrender in the war on terrorism or outlaw the Pledge of Allegiance.

Thomas Sowell | November 07, 2002

The oh-so-smug and oh-so-glib media "experts" have ended up with egg on their face for the second time in a few weeks.

Cal Thomas | November 07, 2002

President Bush, with a little help from his friend and political advisor Karl Rove, was the victor in Tuesday's (Nov. 5)"off-year" election, which was decidedly an on-year for the GOP.

Suzanne Fields | November 07, 2002

Politics is the obsession of the week, with pundits and politicians busy studying what's left of the tea leaves left over from Tuesday's elections, but we shouldn't forget sex.

Linda Chavez | November 07, 2002

Over the last three national elections, Democrats have tried to scare Americans into voting for them, especially blacks. But fear isn't a viable political platform, as Republican candidates proved on Election Day.

Armstrong Williams | November 07, 2002

For the first time in nearly 70 years, the president's party has picked up seats in the House during the midterm elections. And for the first time in 20 years, they've made gains in the Senate during an off-term election year

George Will | November 07, 2002

On election night 2002, election night 2000 ended. The affirmation of the president on Tuesday must be especially sweet because it was so delayed.

Robert Novak | November 07, 2002

Democratic prospects in the South -- and elsewhere -- have not been enhanced in the past two years by the party's national chairman, Washington dealmaker Terry McAuliffe.

Bruce Bartlett | November 07, 2002

The immediate result of last Tuesday's election was to give Republicans an extra vote in the Senate, while subtracting one for the Democrats.

Ross Mackenzie | November 07, 2002

And in this behaviorist hour make no mistake about that phrase, "Democratic behavior" - even "leftist behavior." How did the Democrats turn the electorate away from themselves? Let us count the ways:

Michelle Malkin | November 06, 2002

More Third World shenanigans from the land of the free and the home of the electorally challenged: The Justice Department dispatched more than 400 federal observers and lawyers to guard against illegal voting fraud at polling places in 14 states yesterday.

Walter E. Williams | November 06, 2002

In his Oct. 20, 2002, New York Times Magazine article titled "For Richer: The Disappearing Middle Class," Princeton University economist Professor Paul Krugman wrote, "For the America I grew up in -- the America of the 1950s and 1960s -- was a middle-class society, both in reality and in feel.

Jonah Goldberg | November 06, 2002

This column was due Nov. 5. It would have been better, I think, if I could have had another day to finish it, especially since I wrote it on Election Day.

David Limbaugh | November 06, 2002

Regardless of the actual vote tallies from Tuesday's elections, the big story is that the Democrats are a party in serious disarray.

Ben Shapiro | November 06, 2002

Teenage girls are now almost as likely to initiate sex as boys. So reported The New York Times on Nov. 3, in a piece entitled "She's Got to Be a Macho Girl."

Debra J. Saunders | November 06, 2002

The Washingtonian magazine wondered whether Beltway pundits who "analyze and moralize without pause" actually vote. The answer isn't pretty.

Armstrong Williams | November 06, 2002

For the past 50 years, black voters have sworn a loyalty oath to the Democratic Party. That's all changing now.

John McCaslin | November 06, 2002

A dismal 17 percent of eligible U.S. voters cast ballots in the most recent primaries. But that's not to say something should be done about the low turnout.

Ross Mackenzie | November 06, 2002

Let's listen in on a make-believe interview with an investigator in the sniper case...

Kathleen Parker | November 06, 2002

Learning to pick one's battles is one of life's great lessons. Unfortunately few learn it, especially these days when nearly every human incident is freighted with potentially sweeping applications.

Thomas Sowell | November 05, 2002

Former Vice President Walter Mondale made much of his "experience" during his televised debate with his rival for the Senate seat of the late Paul Wellstone, Republican Norm Coleman.

Brent Bozell | November 05, 2002

Not just any story was going to shake the serial-sniper frenzy out of the top slot in the news, but the Senate losing Sen. Paul Wellstone in a campaign-plane crash in the fog of northern Minnesota certainly did.

Mona Charen | November 05, 2002

Two moments stand out for me from a lifetime of listening to taxpayer-funded National Public Radio.

Cal Thomas | November 05, 2002

The Bush family consistently demonstrates a character trait that is rare in Washington: loyalty. President Bush, like his father, is loyal to those who have been loyal to him.

Dennis Prager | November 05, 2002

Whenever the question of Islam and violence, specifically terror, is raised, we are repeatedly told that "the vast majority of Muslims in the world are peaceful people" who never engage in terror. This is entirely accurate.

Pat Buchanan | November 05, 2002

In Y2K, George W. Bush became the first man in more than a century to win the White House with fewer votes than his rival.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 05, 2002

The General Accounting Office reported last week that 16 percent of our National Guard and reserve pilots and aircrew have transferred out of their combat positions.

Rich Tucker | November 05, 2002

Reporters love polls. Doesn’t it seem as if every newspaper story or television news report about an election includes a poll? Even though they’re often wrong, polls are cited repeatedly and authoritatively.

Bill Murchison | November 05, 2002

Fewer and fewer Americans expect the Democrats or the Republicans, either one, to Save the Republic.

Rich Lowry | November 05, 2002

Does the Ku Klux Klan make U.S. immigration policy?

Bruce Bartlett | November 05, 2002

Although the outcome of today's election is not known as this is written, I can safely predict that the result will be gridlock in Congress.

Larry Kudlow | November 05, 2002

A combination of a just war, a recovering economy, the deaf ear of Democratic operatives and a last-minute reminder that the Carter-Mondale era (i.e., tax, spend and inflate) was another Great Society failure seems to have injected the electorate with an intensity that could deliver Congress to the GOP on Tuesday.

Mon, Nov 04, 2002

Jonah Goldberg | November 04, 2002

In what is probably an election ploy, President Bush has proposed a way for the Senate to get past its logjam on nominating judges.

Pat Buchanan | November 04, 2002

A third of a century ago, I regularly made the long drive across Rickenbacker Causeway from Miami to Key Biscayne in the company of one Richard M. Nixon, who loved the island and retreated there any weekend he could get away.

Suzanne Fields | November 04, 2002

Some of my best friends are Muslims. They make up an extended family of more than a dozen men, women, children and grandchildren in a Washington suburb.

Debra J. Saunders | November 04, 2002

The antiwar group Not in Our Name placed a full-page ad in The San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday denouncing the U.S. war on terrorism as "unjust, immoral and illegitimate." The ad contained "a statement of conscience." Conscience? One of the celebrity lefty signatories is unrepentant convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Diana West | November 04, 2002

At first, I thought the radio-show caller was a put-on. Following the arrests last week of DC-sniper suspects John Allen Mohammed and John Lee Malvo, the caller politely made his request:

William F. Buckley | November 04, 2002

There was even speculation about how Paul Wellstone would have reacted to his own memorial service.

Robert Novak | November 04, 2002

If the Democrats keep control of the Senate in Tuesday's election, Gov. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire may be most responsible.

John Leo | November 04, 2002

-->So police came across the sniper suspects at least 11 times during the long manhunt, but let them go every time.

Kathleen Parker | November 04, 2002

You couldn't miss her. The little Haitian girl dressed in a sunny yellow dress fluffy with crinolines and wearing a bright yellow bow on each pigtail, being lifted down from the boat like a princess from her throne. She was beaming.

Rich Lowry | November 04, 2002

When Heather Mills McCartney, the gorgeous, blond wife of the ex-Beatle, wears a "No More Landmines" T-shirt, people tend to notice. She's been doing it a lot lately.
