Brent Bozell | September 28, 2003

Everyone wants to love the comedian. Everyone likes a good laugh. But most comedians aren't entertaining a generic audience of 7 to 77 these days.

Debra J. Saunders | September 28, 2003

For Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, there apparently is no such thing as illegal immigration.

Paul Jacob | September 28, 2003

Between the time I write this and the time you read this four minutes later, things may have changed in California.

William F. Buckley | September 28, 2003

Gen. Wesley Clark was in public view for the first time. It is remarked that he was all but ignored by the other presidential aspirants, which is true.

George Will | September 28, 2003

No aspect of contemporary governance -- in the delivery of education, medical care, housing, or even welfare services -- has achieved progressive successes as dramatic as has policing.

David Limbaugh | September 27, 2003

When I was on "Hannity and Colmes" Monday night promoting my book, "Persecution," Alan Colmes took me to task for its subtitle: "How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity." "Are you saying liberals can't be Christians?" he asked.

Rich Tucker | September 27, 2003

There’s a reason we don’t allow the average Joe off the street to stand in the batter’s box against Roger Clemens. Or play one-on-one with Shaquille O’Neal.

Robert Novak | September 27, 2003

A principal drafter of President Bush's tax cuts is now advising Arnold Schwarzenegger in his Republican candidacy for governor in the California recall election.

Thomas Sowell | September 26, 2003

Many of the pronouncements coming from those who run our public schools range from fallacies to frauds. The new book "No Excuses" by Abigail and Stephan Thernstrom exposes a number of these self-serving lies.

Jonah Goldberg | September 26, 2003

I have been against the California recall from the get-go. I haven't changed my mind, but I have chosen a candidate.

Mona Charen | September 26, 2003

This ought to shut up our European detractors who've been screaming that we are torturing prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

Oliver North | September 26, 2003

For those who enjoy politics as entertainment, events this past week provided a great deal of amusement.

Debra J. Saunders | September 26, 2003

In June, GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., explained that he was bankrolling the effort to recall Gov. Gray Davis because anyone would be a better governor than Davis.

Jacob Sullum | September 26, 2003

Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., promises that his bill giving the Food and Drug Administration authority over tobacco products will "save lives." But it could kill people instead.

John McCaslin | September 26, 2003

Groundbreaking ceremonies will be held today (Friday, Sept. 26) for the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the first museum dedicated to telling the stories of the U.S. Marines.

Charles Krauthammer | September 26, 2003

The Democrats have long been unhinged by this president. They could bear his (Florida-induced) illegitimacy as long as he was weak and seemingly transitional. But when post-9/11 he became a consequential president -- reinventing American foreign policy and dominating the political scene -- they lost it.

Bruce Bartlett | September 26, 2003

In a recent column, I defended supply-side economics from an attack by Princeton economist Paul Krugman in the New York Times Magazine.

Joel Mowbray | September 26, 2003

It didn’t take long after President Bush’s address to the United Nations for the pundits to pounce—it’s just too bad those “pundits” were posing as reporters.

Thu, Sep 25, 2003

Ann Coulter | September 25, 2003

David Limbaugh's new book, "Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity," will make you cry for your country. (But don't pray for your country if you're anywhere near a public school!)

Thomas Sowell | September 25, 2003

It is a completely different ball game for some kid in the ghetto attending a public school. If his teachers don't do a decent job of teaching math, chances are that he won't know much math.

Larry Elder | September 25, 2003

Critics of President George W. Bush derive great pleasure from his inability to pronounce the word "nuclear." As a candidate, they ridiculed Bush for not knowing the heads of Pakistan, Chechnya and India. But what of the gaffes made by various liberal politicians?

Cal Thomas | September 25, 2003

There he went again. In his address Tuesday (Sept. 23) to the United Nations, President Bush ignored the advice and pleadings of the mostly liberal punditocracy and his enemies on the left (but I repeat myself).

Suzanne Fields | September 25, 2003

The fights over copyright infringements, particularly on the Internet, are getting ever more petty.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 25, 2003

The nation's pundits are surmising in their wiz-kid way that retired Gen. Wesley Clark's candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination has been instigated by some mysterious stratagem devised by the Clintons.

Maggie Gallagher | September 25, 2003

It is clear now, after the president's United Nations speech, what is keeping George Bush up nights: the vision of a small nuclear bomb going off in Manhattan, on his watch.

Robert Novak | September 25, 2003

A largely unknown peculiarity of the massive federal bureaucracy is the existence of an Air Wing in the State Department, with a primary mission of eradicating Colombia's drug cultivation.

Larry Kudlow | September 25, 2003

If Treasury Secretary John Snow would leave well enough alone and quit attacking the Chinese yuan and Japanese yen, investors could look forward to an optimistic worldwide scenario of rising stock markets and economic recovery.

Marvin Olasky | September 25, 2003

When baseball's playoffs begin next week, Barry Bonds will probably show why he's the National League's most valuable player on the field. Off the field, though, he's a study in contradictions, as three scenes indicate.

William F. Buckley | September 25, 2003

The governor of Massachusetts, no less, has announced his intention to restore the death penalty.

Armstrong Williams | September 25, 2003

President Bush's request for $87 billion dollars in additional funding to fight the war in Iraq could push the federal budget deficit above the $550 billion mark, raising serious questions about the administration's decision to simultaneously cut taxes and finance massive reconstruction efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rich Lowry | September 25, 2003

This credo is often nonsensical and hypocritical, but it is clearly discernible. The Democrats of '04 believe:

George Will | September 25, 2003

The governor, who cannot be blamed for not relishing his office just now, also can't be blamed for not wanting orange juice at breakfast.

Alan Reynolds | September 25, 2003

An earlier column questioned recent allegations that U.S. manufacturing has suffered a long-term secular decline rather than a routine but painful cyclical recession.

Thomas Sowell | September 24, 2003

Everyone knows that black students in general do not perform as well in school as white students, much less Asian American students. But few realize how painfully large the gap is.

Michelle Malkin | September 24, 2003

One of the most popular movies currently playing at the box office, "Jeepers Creepers 2," is a teen horror flick directed by a stomach-turning registered sex offender who was convicted of molesting a 12-year-boy he targeted, groomed, seduced, and filmed in pornographic home videos.

Walter E. Williams | September 24, 2003

Suppose you want to deal with me but I don't want to deal with you. Should I be forced to?

Brent Bozell | September 24, 2003

Morning after morning and evening after evening, the wrecking crews of the TV news have their brass knuckles out for the Bush administration's handling of Iraq and the war on terrorism.

Jonah Goldberg | September 24, 2003

Oh, not you. And maybe not you, either. But you - that's right, you: the average Democratic voter who, having barely or never heard of Wesley Clark, has decided he's your man.

Tony Blankley | September 24, 2003

Hold on to your hats (and your Bibles), life is about to become even more confusing.

Terry Jeffrey | September 24, 2003

In the war against HIV, the deadly virus that causes AIDS, we are fast approaching Appomattox. Only this time, it isn't the rebels waving the white flag, it's the federal government.

Ben Shapiro | September 24, 2003

Something fishy is going on. The Clintons are never politically altruistic, especially when it's Hillary's future on the line.

Linda Chavez | September 24, 2003

Liberals want to convince voters that the only reason elections don't always go their way is that nefarious forces -- read, conservatives -- keep likely liberal voters from voting in the first place or having their votes properly counted once they cast them.

Chuck Colson | September 24, 2003

There are times when we should be deeply offended at the misuse of our tax dollars. Find out how the National Institutes of Health is misspending your money.

Kathleen Parker | September 24, 2003

The question of whether Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., will toss her hair band into the ring of presidential contenders persists like any well-placed rumor.

Mona Charen | September 23, 2003

As you may have heard, we in the Washington, D.C., area experienced a genuine, honest-to-goodness hurricane last week.

Dennis Prager | September 23, 2003

It takes a particularly noble Democrat to promote marriage and family. The strengthening of these institutions is not in the Democratic Party's self-interest.

Debra J. Saunders | September 23, 2003

Poor rube. He hasn't grown accustomed to the squalor. He's not used to walking through downtown streets dotted with dysfunctional, pitiful souls.

Matt Towery | September 23, 2003

Last weekend, the Emmy Awards featured a skit in which comedian Darrell Hammond impersonated Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Bill Murchison | September 23, 2003

The custom among many has long been to ignore, where feasible, the mental belchings of the senior senator from Massachusetts on the theory that, ah, what's the use?

John McCaslin | September 23, 2003

Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill, arrived on schedule in Washington last week to address a conference of the Churchill Center.

Bruce Bartlett | September 23, 2003

In Seattle, there is a popular restaurant called the 5 Spot. Its signature dish is a huge, calorie-laden dessert called The Bulge. Access to it, however, is restricted to those patrons willing to sign a waiver agreeing not to sue the restaurant for making them fat.

Cal Thomas | September 22, 2003

The late composer-entertainer-raconteur Oscar Levant famously said about a former general and president, Dwight D. Eisenhower: "Once he makes up his mind, he's full of indecision."

Suzanne Fields | September 22, 2003

The news from the schoolhouse is running from bad to worse. First the bad news: American high school students trail teenagers from 14 European and Asian countries in reading, math and science. We're even trailing France.

Diana West | September 22, 2003

In these times of heightened discord and possible tectonic upheaval, there's little reason to linger on a culture-blip like the publishing launch of a series of kiddie books by Madonna.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 22, 2003

Somebody in the new Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services planned to celebrate Constitution Day on Sept. 17 by changing the oath of citizenship that new citizens take when they are naturalized.

Frank Gaffney | September 22, 2003

Almost exactly six months ago, at the start of the liberation of Iraq, this column warned that a “fragging” incident at the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom “could be the precursor for a far larger and more dangerous problem.

Rich Lowry | September 22, 2003

Librarians have recently let down their hair -- usually wrapped in a tight bun, of course -- to become some of the most vocal opponents of the Bush administration and the USA Patriot Act.

Joel Mowbray | September 22, 2003

On his recent swing through Switzerland and Iraq, Secretary of State Colin Powell’s actions undercut his otherwise fine rhetoric and his department’s insistence that it supports the cause of freedom for the Iraqi people.

Jack Kemp | September 22, 2003

Just as the Democratic Party miscalculated the issue of homeland security during the last election cycle due to labor-union pandering, Senate Democrats are in danger of making a similar miscalculation on education policy.

William F. Buckley | September 22, 2003

What enrages defenders of capitalism so grievously is the callousness of the Richard Grasso episode.

John Leo | September 22, 2003

John Burns, the great New York Times reporter, offers us a brutally blunt assessment of how badly Western correspondents covered Saddam Hussein's regime.

Pat Buchanan | September 21, 2003

Asked about political chatter that Hillary might enter the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, ex-President Clinton volunteered, "That's a decision for her to make."

Paul Jacob | September 21, 2003

My recent discussion of the Transportation Security Administration's foot-dragging when it comes to letting pilots bear arms earned both claps on the shoulder and punches in the nose. Here are some of the concerns readers expressed.

George Will | September 21, 2003

The deficit is the difference between what the biological makeup of human beings demands and what many children's social situations supply in the way of connections to other people, and to institutions that satisfy the natural need for moral and spiritual meaning.

Kathleen Parker | September 21, 2003

The schadenfreude that defines today's hysteria-driven media was vividly manifest Thursday as our world fixated on Isabel - the little hurricane that couldn't quite - and largely ignored weightier if quieter stories of the day.
