Ann Coulter | November 23, 2002

Before we begin, how happy is Dick Gephardt that he never has to take another four-hour phone call from Barbra Streisand?

David Limbaugh | November 23, 2002

If I thought Senator Tom Daschle's reckless remarks against my brother Rush were just a spontaneous outburst, I'd pass on an opportunity to comment on them -- OK, I'm lying; I probably wouldn't -- but I'm convinced they were delivered after cool, calm reflection.

Oliver North | November 23, 2002

White House spokesman Scott McClellan has "tentatively" confirmed reports that Osama bin Laden remains alive and at-large.

Robert Novak | November 23, 2002

If Republican Rep. John Thune thought declining to contest his narrow loss to Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson in South Dakota would help a second run for the Senate in 2004, he was disabused by Republican Gov. Bill Janklow.

Thomas Sowell | November 22, 2002

The change from Senate majority leader to Senate minority leader has apparently led Senator Tom Daschle, D-South Dakota, into more of the kind of wild and reckless rhetoric that may have contributed to the Democrats' defeat in the recent elections.

Michelle Malkin | November 22, 2002

So much that is wrong with our culture can be summed up in a single headline published this week by USA Today: "Don't judge Jackson, say child experts."

Brent Bozell | November 22, 2002

Rush Limbaugh and Roger Ailes used to tweak the liberal media together in producing Rush's short-lived but much enjoyed weeknight television program.

Jonah Goldberg | November 22, 2002

Al Gore wants credit for not committing political suicide by trying to tear down the American political system.

Jacob Sullum | November 22, 2002

"What would Jesus drive?" asks the new religious campaign against SUVs. Naturally, everyone has been eager to supply a punch line.

Joel Mowbray | November 22, 2002

In the new Homeland Security bill just passed by both houses of Congress, stricter visa controls were enacted for people wishing to gain entry to the United States from one—and only one—country: Saudi Arabia.

Charles Krauthammer | November 22, 2002

NATO crosses the frontier into the territory of the Soviet Union--and no one notices.

Rich Lowry | November 22, 2002

We all know that Democrats oppose shoving the elderly into the snow, since they decry Republicans' alleged intention to do that just about election year.

John McCaslin | November 22, 2002

Alfred A. Knopf, which is forking over a record amount of dough - $12 million, reportedly - to publish Bill Clinton's memoirs, is also gearing up to publish an unauthorized biography of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, written by Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein.

Larry Elder | November 21, 2002

In analyzing the recent Democratic bath in the off-year election, black Representative Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., defeated in her own primary, accused the Democratic Party of "taking black voters for granted."

Cal Thomas | November 21, 2002

In the "war on terrorism, " the United States and its citizens are playing catch-up. That is why last Monday's (Nov. 18) ruling by a special federal appeals court - which said that the Justice Department has broad powers to go after suspected terrorists - is significant, necessary and welcome.

Suzanne Fields | November 21, 2002

Robert Browning was an indefatigable optimist when he wrote those lines more than a hundred years ago, when life expectancy was much shorter than it is today.

Ben Shapiro | November 21, 2002

Protesting is usually a serious business. But you can't help laughing at today's anti-war protesters. From stripping naked to holding "die-ins," these people are better than Comedy Central.

Linda Chavez | November 21, 2002

President Bush's visit to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit this week in Prague marks a triumph for a man critics once dubbed a lightweight on foreign policy.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 21, 2002

I do not know what you were doing the other night, but I was listening to the finest public address that I have heard on history in my adult life. It was the valedictory address of Robert L. Bartley, for 30 years the Napoleon Bonaparte of The Wall Street Journal's editorial page.

George Will | November 21, 2002

Al Gore is back, breathing fire and revising history. His fire--that Bush's economic policy is ``catastrophic'' and his foreign policy goal is world domination--is harmless. His revisionism is not.

Robert Novak | November 21, 2002

Ever since her disputed election to the U.S. Senate from Louisiana six years ago, Mary Landrieu has nimbly performed the dance favored these days by many Southern Democrats seeking statewide office: voting liberal and talking conservative.

Bruce Bartlett | November 21, 2002

The Bush administration is presently thinking long and hard about what tax initiatives it may put forward next year. The political climate for pressing its agenda has improved with a Republican takeover of the Senate, along with retention of control in the House of Representatives.

Larry Kudlow | November 21, 2002

A tax-cut battle royale is shaping up in the White House, with President Bush's economic team divided over which measures will best strengthen incentives for economic growth and stock-market investment.

Ross Mackenzie | November 21, 2002

Iraq, terror, sniper prosecutions, judicial confirmations and, at last, a homeland-security agency: Much of great import is going down. Much else, too - such as...

Thomas Sowell | November 20, 2002

While the most immediate effect of the Republicans' election victories has been to strengthen President Bush's hand in dealing with the threat of Saddam Hussein, the most important long-run effect may be on the kind of federal judges who will shape the direction of American law over the next generation.

Michelle Malkin | November 20, 2002

How many of Saddam Hussein's sleeper terrorists are waiting dormant in the United States to retaliate against us when the War on Iraq begins?

Walter E. Williams | November 20, 2002

Airing the "family's" dirty laundry in public can qualify one for less-than-flattering descriptions.

Jonah Goldberg | November 20, 2002

The Justice Department has won a few court cases lately, and the media are reacting as if the American people have lost.

David Limbaugh | November 20, 2002

Bill Clinton's labor secretary, Robert B. Reich, speculated that President Bush must be privately concerned about Republican congressional victories because it will reduce his chances for re-election. I think the affable Mr. Reich is way off base.

Cal Thomas | November 20, 2002

Remember "reinventing government"? That was a task assumed by Vice President Al Gore during the last administration.

Pat Buchanan | November 20, 2002

Not one in 10 million Americans will ever be a member of Augusta National Golf Club. Not one in 100,000 will ever shoot a round of golf at the course Ike and Bobby Jones made famous.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 20, 2002

Democrats are going through a process of self-flagellation trying to figure out whom to blame for their election-day debacle.

Bill Murchison | November 20, 2002

What's the central issue in 21st century American politics? Terrorism? Not a chance.

Joel Mowbray | November 20, 2002

Although Congress attempted to bulk up our nation’s preparedness for terrorist attacks with the creation of the new Department of Homeland Security, the Senate headed in the opposite direction last week by approving the nomination of someone who, as the chief visa enforcer, will likely do little to tighten our borders to keep out those who wish to do us harm.

Kathleen Parker | November 20, 2002

As homeland security heats up and federal officials consider extending the government's plans to -oh, let's just go ahead and say it -- spy on Americans

John McCaslin | November 20, 2002

"The Department of Health and Human Services announced it will provide up to $250,000 to the state of Maryland to provide mental health services for those traumatized by the Beltway Sniper."

Armstrong Williams | November 20, 2002

Simple metal propulsion. It's what makes bullets fly out of guns with such severe force.

Tue, Nov 19, 2002

Thomas Sowell | November 19, 2002

Although Republicans have regained control of the Senate, in a numerical sense, controlling the Senate in reality is a much tougher job.

Mona Charen | November 19, 2002

It will be interesting to see how the debate over civil liberties and the war on terror plays out now that the electorate has given President Bush such a vote of confidence.

Dennis Prager | November 19, 2002

The latest James Bond movie, "Die Another Day," follows the pattern of previous Bond films with scenes of glamorized violence including murder and mayhem, and titillating nudity with suggestive sex scenes.

Diana West | November 19, 2002

Reading the notices on Eminem, you get the distinct impression that what the boffo rap star needs now is some really awful press -- a hit of florid outrage, a grassroots boycott or two, maybe some fresh congressional testimony defining the depths of his deviance.

Frank Gaffney | November 19, 2002

On Sunday, the New York Times breathlessly reported on its front page (above the fold, no less) that, "The Bush administration has begun to monitor Iraqis in the United States in an effort to identify potential domestic terrorist threats posed by sympathizers of the Baghdad regime."

Jack Kemp | November 19, 2002

President George W. Bush is proving himself to be a good chess player, perhaps of grandmaster status.

Rich Lowry | November 19, 2002

O.J. Simpson has nothing on Zacarias Moussaoui. Moussaoui is not just -- like the former running back -- guilty as hell, he has actually tried to plead guilty. And he's still going to get off.

Marvin Olasky | November 19, 2002

On Thanksgiving next week, many of us will remember how God blessed, and some Indians helped, Pilgrim immigrants to America.

Bruce Bartlett | November 19, 2002

I don't normally have an interest in giving Democrats useful advice on anything. I disagree with almost everything they stand for.

Mon, Nov 18, 2002

Jonah Goldberg | November 18, 2002

Two interesting documents came out this week, from very different sources. One is a letter to the secretary general of the United Nations from Naji Sabri, the Iraqi foreign minister.

Pat Buchanan | November 18, 2002

To learn how a respected institution can forfeit its moral authority, one could do worse than conduct a case study of the Catholic Church in America from 1950 to today.

Suzanne Fields | November 18, 2002

The researchers have concluded that there's no reason - no medical reason - why a woman in her 60s and maybe even beyond can't get pregnant if she wants to, and can find a young woman willing to contribute an egg.

Larry Kudlow | November 18, 2002

Fresh off his stunning midterm election victory, President Bush wasted no time in putting his newly acquired political capital to work.

Robert Novak | November 18, 2002

Republican leaders of Congress are leaving the capital surprised, a bit dazed and not entirely happy about the short but eventful lame-duck session of Congress.

Kathleen Parker | November 18, 2002

I'm probably the last person to comment on the wildly controversial Augusta National Golf Club's male-only membership policy, a circumstance rooted in the fact that I'm wildly not interested. I just don't care.

George Will | November 18, 2002

You might think that Jennifer Granholm, Michigan's 43-year-old attorney general and governor-elect, would already be on the Democrats' short list of candidates for a place on their party's national ticket.

John Leo | November 18, 2002

There's a problem in Florida's Panhandle. Some residents think their area's name leaves the impression that panhandling is the major local activity.

Joel Mowbray | November 18, 2002

Giving themselves a second chance to be on the receiving end of another game of Homeland Security whack-a-mole with President Bush, Senate Democrats are suddenly raising new objections to the bill that was supported by most of the House Democratic leadership last week--in what is likely a sly attempt to effectively kill the Homeland Security bill this year without actually voting against it.
