FCC Chairman Michael Powell is getting set to be royally humiliated.

George Will | August 03, 2003

In this season of vast public carelessness, political Toms and Daisys are trashing civic life, making messes and moving on. And there are no large ideas commensurate with, and capable of at least explaining, the institutional damage being done.

William F. Buckley | August 03, 2003

U.S.-Saudi relations aren't easily parsed. There are many reasons for this, but one of them is that the two countries have information about each other that they don't want publicized.

Michelle Malkin | August 01, 2003

If you thought the belly-baring thing was bad enough, take a good look at the sartorial depths to which fashion has now sunk. The Los Angeles Times this week declared it "the summer of the pelvic bone." Last year's already obscene low-riders have gone the way of high-water polyester pants.

Jonah Goldberg | August 01, 2003

OK, maybe it's a bit unfair to call the secretary-general of the Arab League and former foreign minister of Egypt a liar.

Mona Charen | August 01, 2003

The global war on terror has scored huge successes thus far. Pakistan, once an open supporter of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, has done an abrupt about face and now cooperates with the United States in tracking and capturing Al Qaeda.

Oliver North | August 01, 2003

For political spectators, it just doesn't get any better than this. The most populous state in the nation -- with a reputation for setting political trends -- will hold an election this fall to potentially recall their arrogant and universally unpopular governor, Gray Davis.

Rich Tucker | August 01, 2003

It’s one of our more endearing, and frustrating, traits. Whenever something goes wrong, Americans look for someone to blame.

Maggie Gallagher | August 01, 2003

First, a confession: I don't know the name of the woman whom Kobe Bryant allegedly raped. How much longer I can keep my innocence, I also don't know.

Charles Krauthammer | August 01, 2003

When the Iraqi monarchy was overthrown in 1958, Prime Minister Nuri al-Said, fleeing disguised as a woman, was caught, castrated and hacked to pieces by a crowd.

Uday Hussein didn't need a phony study to comprehend Bush's lack of "nuance."

Thomas Sowell | July 31, 2003

In much of the liberal media, large-scale confrontations between police and people who are breaking the law are usually reported in one of two ways. Either the police used "excessive force" or they "let the situation get out of hand."

Larry Elder | July 31, 2003

President George W. Bush, under siege for "misleading" the country into war against Iraq, received some help from an unusual source -- former President Bill Clinton.

Cal Thomas | July 31, 2003

It is a truism in politics that around 40 percent of Republicans will always vote for a Republican presidential candidate and about the same percentage of Democrats will vote for their party's candidate.

Suzanne Fields | July 31, 2003

The Ugly American, like the wicked witch, is dying and almost gone, a fading memory of the Cold War.

Alan Reynolds | July 31, 2003

Competitors seem intent on using public accusations and political influence to keep MCI down, if not down and out.

Rich Lowry | July 31, 2003

I encounter the mentally ill every day. I step over them on the sidewalks, I ignore their rantings, I look the other way when they rummage through the trash.

George Will | July 31, 2003

Hughes and 23 other bishops have urged the convention not to do what it probably will do -- approve the election by New Hampshire Episcopalians of a male bishop who is in a 13-year relationship with another man, and approve a rite for blessing same-sex unions.

Ross Mackenzie | July 31, 2003

The vast size of the nation's Catholic Church (at about 64 million parishioners, the country's largest by a factor of 7 or 8), may partly explain the vast scope of the scandal engulfing the church.

Robert Novak | July 31, 2003

If Fidel Castro was a fixation for John F. Kennedy, he seems off the screen for George W. Bush.

Larry Kudlow | July 31, 2003

Monday's Wall Street Journal tried to argue that the headline-making Treasury-bond sell-off is "technical" and does not infer stronger economic growth.

Marvin Olasky | July 31, 2003

Three weeks ago, I wrote about books before 1750 that those looking to avoid the tyranny of the urgent should read.

A massive new study from Berkeley scientists at has found that political liberals have the following qualities in abundance: Cowardice and appeasement, Comfort with confusion and ignorance, Recklessness, Indecisiveness and similar cognitive defects, and Terror mismanagement

David Limbaugh | July 30, 2003

A few weeks ago, I defended Mel Gibson's upcoming movie, "The Passion," against unwarranted criticism. After having had the privilege of attending a private screening of the movie, I am even more convinced of its value.

Tony Blankley | July 30, 2003

Whose side are you on? It is the question that many Republicans have been afraid to ask. It is the same question that Ann Coulter has notoriously asked and answered in her current best-selling book, "Treason."

Ben Shapiro | July 30, 2003

When did America's most popular sport turn fascist? The National Football League wielded its dictatorial powers with glee on July 25, when it fined Detroit Lions president Matt Millen $200,000 for failing to interview a black candidate for the team's vacant head-coaching position.

Terry Jeffrey | July 30, 2003

Wissam al Zahawie, the Iraqi official whom the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says went on a "trade mission" to uranium-exporting Niger in 1999, had a record of promoting resentment against America and Israel and of making Iraq's case for building a nuclear bomb.

Linda Chavez | July 30, 2003

Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it. Republicans would do well to remember this old adage as they face the prospect of a successful effort to recall California Democrat Gov. Gray Davis in a special election on Oct. 7.

Rebecca Hagelin | July 30, 2003

Ever wondered what it's like to be a police officer on New Year's Eve?

Bill Murchison | July 30, 2003

Today in Orlando, thousands of Christians from around the world—including Chuck Colson—gather at First Baptist to pay respects to one of the great leaders of the twentieth century: Dr. Bill Bright.

Kathleen Parker | July 30, 2003

Something about the camera - the intrusion of media into human affairs - changes everything. Not just the reality, but the spirit and soul of people and events. Why else is there so much controversy about cameras in courtrooms?

John McCaslin | July 30, 2003

Sen. Jim Bunning has his baseball back.

Mona Charen | July 29, 2003

Whenever there is a particularly stunning summer day with a brilliant blue sky and sunshine that brightens every blade of grass and sharply defines every leaf on the trees, I think of Sept. 11.

Cal Thomas | July 29, 2003

Liberal denial about all things conservative has passed the bizarre and arrived at the absurd.

Vanessa Bryant, wife of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, has publicly defended her husband, who is charged with raping a 19-year-old woman.

Matt Towery | July 29, 2003

If the Democrats start overreaching their way to investigations over, say, a 16-word misstatement in Bush's last State of the Union address, or the 9-11 disclosures, they will probably spark a backlash similar to the one against congressional Republicans that saved President Clinton from possible removal from office.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 29, 2003

Since 1976 when the NEA became a big player in national politics by supporting President Carter, the NEA has endorsed a Democrat for President in every election.

Bruce Bartlett | July 29, 2003

Say what you want about The New York Times, but it still makes more news than any other paper in the United States. By this, I don't mean in the sense of printing the news, as other papers do, but rather in the sense of news about the Times itself. Consider these recent items that made national news.

Jack Kemp | July 29, 2003

Rich Lowry | July 29, 2003

The past week has been a stark reminder of the bloody-mindedness of this moment in American history.

Mon, Jul 28, 2003

Suzanne Fields | July 28, 2003

The "new" anti-Semitism is as virulent as ever, but it's often easy for Americans - Christian and Jew alike - not to notice.

Diana West | July 28, 2003

As news of Uday and Qusay Hussein's most welcome demise was breaking across the globe, Iraqis lit the skies with celebratory fire.

Robert Novak | July 28, 2003

As Congress hurried last week to clear its agenda so it could leave town for its August recess, the House of Representatives defied President Bush on two important issues -- and did so by big margins.

Joel Mowbray | July 28, 2003

With some blind partisans mourning what one leading Democrat, Congressman Charlie Rangel, called an “assassination” of Saddam’s sadistic sons, it is only appropriate that we take a moment to eulogize the not-so-dearly departed.

Thomas Sowell | July 27, 2003

Have you ever heard a single hard fact to back up all the sweeping claims for the benefits of "diversity"?

Pat Buchanan | July 27, 2003

Neville Chamberlain, the prime minister who agreed to the transfer of the Sudetenland to Germany, is known to history as an appeaser.

Debra J. Saunders | July 27, 2003

Of course Democratic presidential hopeful Dick Gephardt was a hit Tuesday. He was bashing President Bush in San Francisco -- better yet, in front of the city's bar association.

Jacob Sullum | July 27, 2003

Ernie and Pat Bechler, who testified at the recent congressional hearings on ephedra, blame the herbal stimulant for the death of their son, Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Bechler, during spring training last February.

John Leo | July 27, 2003

Maybe we should give an award for mangled quotation of the year. Misquotations are becoming a regular feature of journalism and politics, partly out of carelessness but mostly because anything-goes partisanship so deeply afflicts our discourse.

Kathleen Parker | July 27, 2003

Michael Burdick, the hoaxer made infamous for his naked-women-paintball Bambi-hunting "business," is a philosopher. He believes in free speech, free will, a free America and ... free publicity.

William F. Buckley | July 27, 2003

George Will | July 27, 2003

When in January Donald Rumsfeld, responding to reporters, distinguished between ``old'' and ``new'' Europe, he misspoke.
