David Limbaugh | February 01, 2003

I was flabbergasted as I watched House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stumble through an interview about Iraq on "ABC This Week." She's just lucky George Stephanopoulos was interviewing her instead of George Will.

Robert Novak | February 01, 2003

According to high-level administration sources, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta was scheduled to follow former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill as the second Cabinet member to be fired by President Bush until illness landed him in Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Ann Coulter | January 31, 2003

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was looking a little glum Tuesday night. Last week Kerry gave a speech saying: "Mr. President, do not rush to war!" Rush to war? We've been talking about this war for a year. It's been three months since Kerry duly recorded his vote in favor of forcibly removing Saddam Hussein.

Thomas Sowell | January 31, 2003

Sometimes a phrase betrays a whole mindset. Someone quoted in the New York Times recently referred to the Bush tax cut as one in which "most of the benefits would be showered on the richest taxpayers."

Michelle Malkin | January 31, 2003

Feminists will howl, but this is the truth: Sometimes, girls are meant to sit on the sidelines.

Brent Bozell | January 31, 2003

Beware the entertainment critics who, after sitting through years, if not decades, of repetitive entertainment, of love stories and crime stories and war stories and supposedly funny stories, are bored.

Jonah Goldberg | January 31, 2003

As the squabbling between the United States and "Europe" intensifies, I keep thinking of the movie "A Few Good Men."

Mona Charen | January 31, 2003

They did it in West Virginia, and now they're going to do it in New Jersey. Doctors are staging strikes. They will of course continue to care for emergencies, but office visits and non-emergency surgeries will have to wait.

Oliver North | January 31, 2003

Those who were hoping that 2003 would bring a new sense of urgency at the United Nations to liberate the world from terrorism have been greatly disappointed.

Jacob Sullum | January 31, 2003

At a time when juries hand down multibillion-dollar awards as if they were "Employee of the Month" plaques, the real news may be the seemingly rare occasions when courts take the side of common sense.

Charles Krauthammer | January 31, 2003

When on the night of the State of the Union address my son handed me an Internet printout headlined ``Iraq to Chair U.N. Disarmament Conference,'' I was sure he'd been dipping again into The Onion.

Rich Lowry | January 31, 2003

Clinton inherited a nasty ethnic war in Bosnia, with the British and French incapable of addressing the Serb aggression, partly because their peacekeepers on the ground became quasi-hostages. Clinton's instinct was that "if the United States doesn't act in situations like this, nothing will happen."

John McCaslin | January 31, 2003

Helen Thomas, who was a White House correspondent for United Press International for many years, calls George W. Bush "the worst president in all of American history."

Thomas Sowell | January 30, 2003

History does not literally repeat itself, but sometimes it comes awfully close. Iraq is not the first dangerous dictatorship that international agreements tried to keep disarmed. Nor is it the first where that effort failed.

Larry Elder | January 30, 2003

"Buck Fush." Thus said the bumper sticker placed on the classroom wall by a teacher in a public high school.

Cal Thomas | January 30, 2003

As one of the favored few, I was impressed by how comfortable he is with being in charge. George W. Bush has a hide stronger than an armadillo and a vision that what he is doing and wants to do is completely and undeniably right.

Suzanne Fields | January 30, 2003

Once upon a time a famous Russian star of the Yiddish theater was playing King Lear in New York City.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 30, 2003

It is time for America's most effective peace movement to roll into Iraq -- that is to say, the American armed forces and their allies.

Robert Novak | January 30, 2003

Emotionally and eloquently, George W. Bush in his second State of the Union sounded like a war president. Yet, hours before the address, the White House at the highest level stressed that the president had made no final decision on using U.S. arms to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

Bruce Bartlett | January 30, 2003

Writing in The Washington Post, Stuart Rojstaczer of Duke University admitted that he no longer gives any grade lower than a B.

Ross Mackenzie | January 30, 2003

In one speech Tuesday night he changed the game. Saddam is as good as gone.

Larry Kudlow | January 30, 2003

Why is Alan Greenspan sabotaging the president's tax cut?

Joel Mowbray | January 30, 2003

Phyllis Schlafly is not a young woman—but you’d never know it based on the schedule she keeps or the way she carries herself.

Michelle Malkin | January 29, 2003

Since its inception last year, the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) has stopped 330 known foreign criminals and three known terrorists who attempted to come into the country at certain official ports of entry.

Walter E. Williams | January 29, 2003

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear Grutter and Gratz vs. Bollinger, a case challenging the University of Michigan's racial preferences, and President Bush's submitting an amicus curiae brief supporting the challenge has refueled the affirmative action debate.

Brent Bozell | January 29, 2003

As Democrats compete to take on President Bush in 2004, they still fear the power of his appeal on the prominent issues of the day: war and taxes.

Jonah Goldberg | January 29, 2003

"Toothless hookers of the world unite!" This could conceivably be the campaign slogan for Jerry Springer's potential Senate campaign, proving that democracy isn't the beautiful maiden some people think it is.

David Limbaugh | January 29, 2003

Monday morning's report by United Nations weapons inspector Hans Blix confirms there's only one remaining reason to delay military action against Iraq: to give our military a little more time to complete its final preparations for the strike.

Ben Shapiro | January 29, 2003

What is the most common factually incorrect statement used by the mainstream media? It crosses ideological lines. Both CBS and Fox News state it.

Debra J. Saunders | January 29, 2003

As Norma Hotaling puts it, children engaged in prostitution are "the only sanctioned group of kids that it's absolutely OK to sexually abuse."

Linda Chavez | January 29, 2003

Title IX has been a wonderful vehicle to expand opportunity for girls who chose to play sports in schools and colleges over the last three decades. Unfortunately, some feminist extremists have tried to hijack the law in recent years to limit choices for both girls and boys to participate in school-sponsored sports teams.

Kathleen Parker | January 29, 2003

Oh where to begin? Let's start with this: "Only the desirable embryos are implanted, and troublesome Billy is never born."

John McCaslin | January 29, 2003

The executive nomination of former Pennsylvania Gov. Thomas J. Ridge to be the nation's first secretary of the Department of Homeland Security was confirmed unanimously last week by the Senate.

Armstrong Williams | January 29, 2003

One of the Bush administration's first moves was to scrap the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty that barred the development of a missile defense shield. Critics decried the move as dangerously unilateral.

Mona Charen | January 28, 2003

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., asked on television whether she supported military action against Iraq, kept returning to the same two answers. We must consult with the United Nations, and we must not let this distract us from the war on terror.

Cal Thomas | January 28, 2003

Chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix has concluded that Iraq has failed to live up to numerous resolutions calling for the disarmament of Saddam Hussein's regime. No matter how much spin or false hope is derived from his report, that is the bottom line.

Dennis Prager | January 28, 2003

In Part I, I argued that it is not Democratic positions that most entice nearly all blacks and the great majority of Jews to vote Democrat. Rather this lopsided voting is more a function of the two groups' respective memories.

Diana West | January 28, 2003

It's one thing for a pop star like Sheryl Crow, sorry, an "activist for recording artist's rights" like Crow to wear her gross political naivete across her T-shirt in black sequins that spell, "WAR IS NOT THE ANSWER."

Phyllis Schlafly | January 28, 2003

While Americans without health insurance struggle with the problem of how to pay for medical care, Mexicans don't have that problem.

Bill Murchison | January 28, 2003

A simple list of Who Opposes Thus-and-So, as compared to one showing Who's For It, isn't the kind of evidence that lawyers call dispositive.

Frank Gaffney | January 28, 2003

President Bush has been getting a lot of free advice lately about what he should say in his State of the Union address tomorrow night. Here is the Center for Security Policy's contribution:

Jack Kemp | January 28, 2003

In a single salvo of withering British irony, Winston Churchill demolished the moral pretensions of socialism: "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."

Rich Lowry | January 28, 2003

Ron Dixon acted the way any of us would have -- if, that is, we had the same courage. He pointed his 9 mm and fired. Dixon shot the intruder he had found rummaging through his 2-year-old son's room in his home in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, N.Y. For that, Dixon is facing jail time.

Marvin Olasky | January 28, 2003

If George Washington Carver, born near Joplin, is remembered at all during February's Black History Month, it will be largely for his favoring of one food.

Bruce Bartlett | January 28, 2003

Last week's announcement that Council of Economic Advisers Chairman R. Glenn Hubbard will shortly leave his post is bad news. I am now far less optimistic that a good tax bill will be enacted into law this year. However, his rumored replacement, economist N. Gregory Mankiw of Harvard, will do a good job of filling Hubbard's shoes.

Suzanne Fields | January 27, 2003

If you live in Washington, work in the media or in politics, you quickly learn the divisions of left and right, liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican. It's part of the diet, every working day.

Debra J. Saunders | January 27, 2003

The California Supreme Court is considering a measure to prohibit state judges from being members of the Boy Scouts of America because the Boy Scouts discriminate against homosexuals.

Maggie Gallagher | January 27, 2003

Thirty years ago last week, the Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, transforming abortion from a crime into a constitutional right. Thirty years later, it's a good time to reflect on what we were promised by abortion rights advocates and what we have gained.

Robert Novak | January 27, 2003

Since Colin Powell has been relied upon to impede the nation's march to war in Iraq, apprehensive Republicans were startled last week by his suddenly bellicose rhetoric.

William F. Buckley | January 27, 2003

It was in November 1990 that the United States successfully urged on the United Nations a final date: a specific date (Jan. 15, 1991) by which Saddam would need to have removed his conquering army from Kuwait or else face a military showdown.

Joel Mowbray | January 27, 2003

As often happens in child-abduction cases, State officials had practically ignored Synclair's wishes and concerns for several years, choosing non-forceful diplomacy over any sort of "disruptive" action.

George Will | January 27, 2003

It is really a misunderstanding. Out in Ann Arbor--which is the Athens of the Midwest, if it does say so itself, and it does--the large-hearted and progressive-minded University of Michigan insists that its undergraduate and law school admissions policies do not actually involve racial preferences.
