Paul Jacob | October 19, 2003

Even if Rush Limbaugh is a fallible human being, which we can all concede, it doesn't mean he "lacks the moral authority" to challenge the moral failings of others.

George Will | October 19, 2003

Today it is just 51 months until the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary -- the 2008 caucuses and primary -- and some Republicans are looking to the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains for a possible candidate to become the 44th president.

William F. Buckley | October 19, 2003

What Mr. Bush did, on October 10, was to announce, or rather to reemphasize, three policies. There would be a commission set up to assist a Free Cuba.

Rich Tucker | October 18, 2003

The cover story in the Oct. 13 U.S. News & World Report set out to expose “Dick Cheney, The Man Behind the Curtain.” Author Kenneth T. Walsh attempted to do that while keeping the vice president’s critics safely concealed.

Ross Mackenzie | October 18, 2003

Muhammad, who has pleaded not guilty, may be found innocent. But circumstantial evidence of his involvement abounds.

Marvin Olasky | October 18, 2003

I practically grew up at Fenway Park, so I'm suffering along with the rest of Red Sox Nation, but I'm finding this stuff about curses a bit much.

Robert Novak | October 18, 2003

Before he left on his current Asian trip, President Bush privately passed word that he is keeping a close eye on the negotiations for prescription drug subsidies and will not sign an unacceptable bill.

Jonah Goldberg | October 17, 2003

Jimmy Carter never used the word "malaise" in his "malaise speech." Abraham Lincoln never said, "God must have loved the common people, he made so many of them." And George W. Bush never said that the threat from Iraq was "imminent."

David Limbaugh | October 17, 2003

Those who continue to deny that America is in the throes of a culture war and that secularists are taking aim against Christianity and its values are either not reading and watching the news or are in major denial.

Mona Charen | October 17, 2003

There is a marked tendency among those on the left to believe the worst about the United States. This is particularly true when it comes to military action.

Oliver North | October 17, 2003

Each Sept. 11, Americans will commemorate one of the most tragic days in American history -- a day when 2,998 of our friends and neighbors were murdered by fanatic terrorists. It is a day that will not be forgotten because, for so many Americans, Sept. 11 marks the start of the war on terrorism.

Joel Mowbray | October 17, 2003

As the new Iraqi government takes shape, there is growing agreement among many in the administration that the country is likely to become officially an Islamic republic when the new constitution is drafted in coming months, according to informed sources in Iraq and several administration officials.

Bruce Bartlett | October 17, 2003

Despite improving economic and budgetary news, there is rising pressure to do something about the budget deficit. I expect this pressure to grow rapidly over the next year.

Charles Krauthammer | October 17, 2003

Bill ``Spaceman'' Lee was a pretty good pitcher for the Boston Red Sox in the 1970s. He is better known, however, for his Delphic pronouncements that earned him his nickname and sound like Yogi Berra on acid.

Ann Coulter | October 16, 2003

So liberals have finally found a drug addict they don't like. And unlike the Lackawanna Six – those high-spirited young lads innocently seeking adventure in an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan – liberals could find no excuses for Rush Limbaugh.

Thomas Sowell | October 16, 2003

Name some of the things that make us so much better off than Americans of just a couple of generations ago.

Larry Elder | October 16, 2003

If the administration finds weapons of mass destruction, said a pundit on one of last Sunday's political chat shows, then expect a President Bush lift-up in the polls. IF?

Cal Thomas | October 16, 2003

Cal Thomas, the most widely syndicated conservative voice in America, spent an hour with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Oct. 12, and in this compelling interview, Sharon outlines the five conditions that must be met before the peace process can proceed.

Suzanne Fields | October 16, 2003

The buzz among the oh-so-hip in Gotham is about a new play called "Omnium Gatherum," translated with ironic understatement to mean "a collection of peculiar souls."

Emmett Tyrrell | October 16, 2003

I am wondering. At this point in the Democratic lunge for the presidential nomination, does Dr. Howard Dean have a monopoly on that sector of the Democratic vote that we may classify as the moron vote?

Marvin Olasky | October 16, 2003

Are we left unable to take public positions on moral questions because we cannot find a perfect man or woman to uphold the standards?

Robert Novak | October 16, 2003

A largely overlooked, widely misinterpreted event in Moscow two weeks ago transformed the international conflict over the environment and growth.

Rich Lowry | October 16, 2003

If only President Bush had listened to Bill Clinton. The former president, who is now the Second-Guesser in Chief, told an audience the other day that he had warned President Bush about Osama bin Laden in an "exit interview" as he left office in early 2001.

John McCaslin | October 16, 2003

Gotten your flu shot yet? Whether you have or not, one leading congressman's warning might frighten you more than the needle.

Alan Reynolds | October 16, 2003

Thomas Sowell | October 15, 2003

During a recent visit to Washington, I was told by a high official there that he had posed this question to Democrats: "Why are you so opposed to vouchers?"

Michelle Malkin | October 15, 2003

The condescension of The New York Times toward minority conservatives is so thick, you need a Cuisinart electric carving knife to slice it.

Walter E. Williams | October 15, 2003

I'd like someone to tell me precisely what it is that Limbaugh said that can rightfully be characterized as racist. For the life of me, I can't find it.

Brent Bozell | October 15, 2003

A few hours after Rush made his explosive announcement, Chris Matthews asked me to be his guest on “Hardball” that evening. On the set before the start, I told Chris I just wasn’t up for the high-voltage debate style that’s made his "Hardball" show famous.

Jonah Goldberg | October 15, 2003

Democrats are already wearing out the treads on the joke that not all of us have Rush Limbaugh's maid to give us prescription drug coverage.

Ben Shapiro | October 15, 2003

It's "Coming Out Week" at universities all across the fruited plains. Throughout the country, students are sharing their queer sexual proclivities. Colleges sponsor gay rallies. They put out "pro-tolerance" fliers.

Terry Jeffrey | October 15, 2003

In the midst of a recent Cher concert at a packed arena in Washington, D.C., massive TV screens flashed a clip of the star declaring that if she wanted to take a certain pair of body parts from her chest and implant them in her back it would be nobody's business but her own.

Linda Chavez | October 15, 2003

Mona Charen | October 14, 2003

If you caught the Golden Globe Awards last January and you live on the East Coast where the program was aired live, then you heard Irish rock star Bono express his thanks in the following words...

Cal Thomas | October 14, 2003

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon says he has no intention of dismantling the security fence he is building to protect Jewish neighborhoods from Palestinian terrorists, no matter what the United Nations decides when it debates the issue on Tuesday (Oct. 14).

Dennis Prager | October 14, 2003

Whatever your politics, you have to be oblivious to reality to deny that America today is torn by ideological divisions as deep as those of the Civil War era. We are, in fact, in the midst of the Second American Civil War.

Matt Towery | October 14, 2003

Happily forBush, the stock market and corporate profits are both rising, consumers are showing signs of renewed retail spending, and unemployment may even be declining.

Frank Gaffney | October 14, 2003

When Senator Jon Kyl opens a hearing of his Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism this morning [Tuesday], the subject will be the penetration of the U.S. military's chaplain corps and American prison systems by radical Muslims (also known as Islamists).

Bill Murchison | October 14, 2003

As Anglican primates put their miters together in London this week, press accounts advertise the Episcopal Church's gay-bishop ruckus as the cause of the Anglican Communion's now-notorious family feud.

George Will | October 14, 2003

Even people of different faiths, and of none, should watch the results of the London meeting, ending Thursday, of the 38 Anglican primates convened by Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury and titular head of the 75-million-member Anglican Communion worldwide.

Armstrong Williams | October 14, 2003

Four months ago, the Supreme Court Justices handed down decisions that invented a constitutional right to engage in homosexual sodomy (Lawrence v. Texas) and an affirmative action decision that perfectly sums up how far our society has moved from the basic tenets of equality (Grutter v. Bollinger).

John McCaslin | October 14, 2003

The "Talking Rummy" doll speaks 26 sound bites, and sports a realistic face, right down to its stylish eyeglasses.

Chuck Colson | October 14, 2003

When we find ourselves having to state the obvious, we know we're in trouble. And that's what we're facing with the current debate about marriage.

Mike Adams | October 13, 2003

Most of my colleagues at UNC-Wilmington understand the First Amendment when they are goring someone’s ox. But when their ox gets gored, they run for the nearest attorney or college administrator.

David Limbaugh | October 13, 2003

Sen. John Kerry is demanding an apology from President Bush for his handling of Iraq. It would make more sense for Kerry to apologize for his own demagoguery and for placing his personal ambitions ahead of the national interest.

Pat Buchanan | October 13, 2003

In calling this populist uprising a "miserable" experience, Broder speaks for an elite that denounced the recall as a "circus" and "chaos." He does not speak for the people.

Suzanne Fields | October 13, 2003

Everybody's in favor of freedom of speech as long as it's his own. Often the most educated are the most easily offended "sensitive" men and women who want to kick in the First Amendment when they don't like the speech it protects.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 13, 2003

President Bush has proclaimed Oct. 12-18 as Marriage Protection Week because it is becoming clearer all the time that the institution of marriage needs protection from the courts.

Jack Kemp | October 13, 2003

Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger has a historic opportunity to create a Wirtschaftswunder - an economic miracle - for California.

Rich Lowry | October 13, 2003

John Leo | October 13, 2003

Robert Novak | October 13, 2003

Supporters of Wesley Clark feared the worst from Thursday night's debate in Phoenix, and they got it.

Sun, Oct 12, 2003

Brent Bozell | October 12, 2003

Arnold Schwarzenegger won, and Gray Davis lost, as did Cruz Bustamante, as did Arianna Huffington. But no one was more rejected in this 61 percent Republican tidal wave in an overwhelming Democratic state than the liberal press. Consider the media recalled.

Paul Jacob | October 12, 2003

If an incumbent politician pulled out a Beretta 9000S and shot each of his challengers in the shins--as authorized by incumbent-passed laws making it legal for incumbents to shoot challengers but not for challengers to shoot incumbents--would anybody claim that the incumbent is merely enacting the transparent "will of the people"?

Rich Tucker | October 12, 2003

Think of how much things have changed since 1968. Then, Arnold Schwarzenegger was a newly arrived immigrant bodybuilder. Now he’s governor-elect of California.

Joel Mowbray | October 12, 2003

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher threw a tantrum Thursday. The cause of his ire? Not foreign dictators or nuclear-armed tyrants. Boucher’s wrath was targeted at Pat Robertson.

George Will | October 12, 2003

With states' budgets in crisis, being president of a large public university is even more difficult than it is when, as the saying goes, campus preoccupations are parking for faculty, football for alumni and sex for students.
