Paul Jacob | February 22, 2004

When I think of the modified 1959 Buick that recently departed the shores of Cuba to cut through the waves of the Gulf of Mexico, carrying its eleven passengers towards America, and freedom, "spirit of American style" seems almost right.

George Will | February 22, 2004

The law expanded government restrictions on political speech, ostensibly to combat corruption or the ``appearance'' thereof.

Doug Giles | February 21, 2004

Gone are the Norman Rockwell days of sending young Scooter off to school with his satchel slung over his shoulder, PBJ sandwich in his Superman lunch box and a wide-eyed expectancy of learning, the kind that makes individuals and nations great.

Ed Feulner | February 21, 2004

A teacher?s job is to educate. To enlighten. To inform. But that can?t happen if students?and their parents?don?t understand what the teacher is talking about.

Rich Tucker | February 21, 2004

It?s not a crime to be politically incorrect on campus these days. Oh, no. It?s worse than a crime.

Robert Novak | February 21, 2004

Normally close-mouthed political operatives who run George W. Bush's re-election campaign are unequivocally stating that Vice President Dick Cheney will remain on the ticket for a second term.

Kathleen Parker | February 21, 2004

The only person unhappier about John Edwards' Wisconsin surge than Sen. John Kerry surely is George W. Bush. Call it tribal instinct, but Bush is probably more worried about Edwards in a head-to-head contest than he is about Kerry.

Bruce Bartlett | February 21, 2004

The candidates seem to be engaged in a race to the bottom to see who can pander more to the unemployed by blaming all their woes on foreigners.

William F. Buckley | February 21, 2004

The struggle over the shape of the constituting assembly they're going to get in Iraq reminds us how firmly entrenched democratic fetishism is.

Jonah Goldberg | February 20, 2004

Senator Kerry says constantly, 'If the White House wants to make this election about national security, I have three words they understand: 'Bring, it, on!'

David Limbaugh | February 20, 2004

There is a chance that the bizarre Democratic primaries could get very interesting if Senator Edwards has the guts to pull out the stops.

Mona Charen | February 20, 2004

A neighbor notified police when he heard someone rummaging through the trash. When police arrived, they discovered that it was Bruce Jackson, searching for food.

Oliver North | February 20, 2004

Even though I'm one of the few Americans, besides President George W. Bush, to be personally attacked by Sen. John Kerry on a regular basis, it just hasn't seemed right to respond.

Charles Krauthammer | February 20, 2004

As the Democrats enter the final stages of their primary race, the emerging story is how the Republicans are preparing to go negative in the general election with a campaign of singular viciousness against John Kerry.

Ann Coulter | February 19, 2004

Liberals are hopping mad about last week's column. Amid angry insinuations that I "lied" about Sen. Max Cleland, I was attacked on the Senate floor by Sen. Jack Reed, Molly Ivins called my column "error-ridden," and Al Hunt called it a "lie." Joe Klein said I was the reason liberals were being hysterical about George Bush's National Guard service.

Thomas Sowell | February 19, 2004

One of the confusions that plagues discussions of equality and inequality is a confusion between the vagaries of fate and the sins of man. There are plenty of both but they need to be sharply distinguished from one another.

Larry Elder | February 19, 2004

The man intently scribbled on a legal pad, engrossed in his subject. On the table among a stack of papers sat a book titled "Black History for Beginners." I smiled and said, "What do you want to know?"

Mike Adams | February 19, 2004

Dear Professor Thompson: I am writing to compliment you on your handling of a recent free-speech controversy, which began after a student expressed his religious objections to homosexual behavior in a course offered in your department.

Cal Thomas | February 19, 2004

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai to deliver the Ten Commandments to the ancient Israelites, he encountered a people having a party and worshipping a golden calf.

Suzanne Fields | February 19, 2004

In this season of the Democratic primaries, everything is perceived in dichotomies of red and blue. We're reminded that the electorate is evenly divided, that ideology is rampant and that the voter sees the issues in negatives and positives.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 19, 2004

The campaign trail has been cluttered with such fantasticos as Sen. John Pierre Kerry, Dr. Howard Dean, Generalissimo Wesley Clark and the Rev Al Sharpton. Now I, too, have had to venture onto the campaign trail, but a more civilized trail it is.

Marvin Olasky | February 19, 2004

These days, it seems as if there is no settled law in America: Judges and mayors do what is right in their own eyes.

Alan Reynolds | February 19, 2004

"We will not quit now or ever," said Howard Dean after the Iowa caucuses. He initially repeated that message after getting another pathetic 18 percent vote in Wisconsin, then he quickly redefined the meaning of "quit."

Robert Novak | February 19, 2004

So much for the contention by Kerry supporters that his connection with "Hanoi Jane" (so called for her later visit to the enemy capital in time of war) was accidental juxtaposition in a photograph.

Ross Mackenzie | February 19, 2004

With the Democratic presidential nomination already boxed, John Kerry - or someone on his staff - is wrapping it up and topping it off with a pretty bow.

George Will | February 19, 2004

It is difficult to say something perfectly, precisely false. But Speaker Dennis Hastert did when participating in the bipartisan piling-on against the president's economic adviser who imprudently said something sensible.

Rich Lowry | February 19, 2004

Just as the 2000 Florida voting fiasco symbolizes for Democrats the election-stealing illegitimacy of Bush Republicans, Cleland's 2002 re-election defeat represents their low-blow tactics on national security.

Thomas Sowell | February 18, 2004

This is truly the age of dogma when it comes to differences between groups. Some will blindly deny that intergroup differences in performances are anything other than "stereotypes," "perceptions," or discrimination.

Michelle Malkin | February 18, 2004

If Calif. Rep. Lynn Woolsey were a Republican white male, feminists would be picketing his office, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe would be calling for his immediate resignation, and the New York Times would be in full editorial lynch mode.

Walter E. Williams | February 18, 2004

The first concept an economics student learns is that for every benefit there's also a cost -- or, as my longtime colleague and friend Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman has put it, "There's no free lunch."

Brent Bozell | February 18, 2004

The mass unveiling of Mel Gibson's cinematic vision of "The Passion of the Christ" on 2,000 screens -- a massive debut for a foreign-language film with subtitles -- has the entertainment elite a bit frightened.

Jonah Goldberg | February 18, 2004

I suspect that millions of Americans are a lot like me: tall, ruggedly handsome in an overfed sense, with an abiding love of cured meats. But that's not important right now.

Tony Blankley | February 18, 2004

Returning from the hypothetical to the current reality, Senator Kerry and the Democrats have severely chastised President Bush for advocating and practicing pre-emptive war.

Ben Shapiro | February 18, 2004

During the senatorial campaign, Kerry uttered this unforgettable witticism: "Governor, as I listen to you, it's really extraordinary. You talk out of both sides of your mouth more than the Budweiser frogs. It's the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life."

Terry Jeffrey | February 18, 2004

There are those who argue that "therapeutic" cloning -- in which a human embryo is cloned and killed -- is a great advancement for the human race.

Linda Chavez | February 18, 2004

Buoyed by a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruling that ordered the legislature in that state to allow homosexuals to marry, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom last week ordered city officials to begin issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples, in open contravention of state law.

Rebecca Hagelin | February 18, 2004

I'm referring to the many stories sent by men across the country to Dr.Laura Schlessinger that are included in her newly released book, "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands."

Armstrong Williams | February 18, 2004

A small coterie of aging Harlem powerbrokers gathered in a secret hideaway this week and cut a deal that will send reverberations throughout New York City.

Joel Mowbray | February 18, 2004

The European Union has finally started doing the right thing by cutting its funding of the hopelessly corrupt Palestinian Authority?but for all the wrong reasons.

Kathleen Parker | February 18, 2004

Take the 24-hour news cycle, throw in the "instantaneity" of the blogosphere, add one rumor, a dash of innuendo and a twentysomething intern and you've got a ... yawn.

Thomas Sowell | February 17, 2004

Some readers objected to a statement in this column that black students usually do not perform as well in school as white students or Asian American students. These readers seemed to think that this was a personal opinion -- or even an immoral statement.

David Limbaugh | February 17, 2004

One blessing likely to result from John Kerry's rapid clinching of the Democratic presidential nomination is that Democrats will finally be forced to give us their solutions for the nation's problems.

Cal Thomas | February 17, 2004

Didn't we already fight the battle over the National Guard? It was 1988, and Dan Quayle had just been selected by presidential nominee George H.W. Bush as his running mate.

Dennis Prager | February 17, 2004

You may have noticed that many young women wear less, and more sexually provocative, clothing in public than they did a generation, or even 10 years, ago.

Bill Murchison | February 17, 2004

In our blessed land of the free, you can define a piccolo as a baked potato and then slather the thing with sour cream prior to chomping down. But mere assertion doesn't turn a piccolo into a baked potato. Only a judge, it seems, enjoys that prerogative.

Maggie Gallagher | February 17, 2004

At the National Press Club in Washington this week, the marriage advocates fought back.

John McCaslin | February 17, 2004

Have our eyes deceived us - has Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) been named one of the Top 25 "Toughest Guys" in America by Men's Journal?

Chuck Colson | February 17, 2004

Earlier this month, two important decisions concerning homosexuality came down, and surprisingly, the courts found a way around Lawrence. It?s a reminder of the difference that judges who respect the law, instead of trying to write it, can make.

William F. Buckley | February 17, 2004

The story about John Kerry and his alleged dalliance with the lady is several times interesting.

Bruce Bartlett | February 17, 2004

Even if the federal government tried to stop outsourcing, it cannot.

Mon, Feb 16, 2004

Mike Adams | February 16, 2004

I want everyone who is reading this short column to try to imagine what kind of behavior could have possibly prompted a UNC professor to so harshly rebuke one of her students for comments he made inside the classroom.

Suzanne Fields | February 16, 2004

The biggest difference between John Kerry and George W. Bush is not what they did during the Vietnam War but what they've done during the war in Iraq.

Diana West | February 16, 2004

In a document intercepted last month by U.S. officials, the man believed to be Zarqawi bemoans U.S. resolve -- America "has no intention of leaving, no matter how many wounded nor how bloody it becomes" -- and U.S. progress in building an Iraqi security force.

Frank Gaffney | February 16, 2004

he best that can be hoped for is that this new round of diplomacy will go the way of the last one - with Pyongyang's delegation behaving badly and refusing to disarm.

Joel Mowbray | February 16, 2004

When asked if recently ?detained? National Guard soldier Ryan Anderson?who allegedly tried to pass on sensitive information to al Qaeda?was a Muslim, the unit spokesman, Lt. Col. Stephen Barger replied, ?Religious preferences are an individual right and responsibility, and I really can?t get into it.?

Jack Kemp | February 16, 2004

February is Black History Month primarily because Abraham Lincoln's birthday is Feb. 12. Unfortunately, the political party he helped to found has lost its historical recognition as the Party of Civil Rights.

John Leo | February 16, 2004

When is the word ?diversity? not tolerated on campus? When someone tries to put the word ?intellectual? in front of it.

Rich Lowry | February 16, 2004

In "Surprise, Security, and the American Experience," he links Sept. 11 to another assault on the nation's capital, the British attack on Washington on Aug. 24, 1814, which left the White House in flames.

Robert Novak | February 16, 2004

Democratic Whip Harry Reid of Nevada, who each day roams the Senate floor protecting the minority party and pummeling George W. Bush, showed up Wednesday carrying a paperback book.

Armstrong Williams | February 16, 2004

Korean scientists recently announced that they cloned 30 embryos and extracted stem cells from one of the clones.

Paul Jacob | February 15, 2004

The world is full of dictators. Fidel Castro comes to mind. After more than four decades of iron-fisted rule, he is still tossing pro-democracy activists in prison for the awful crime of being, well, pro-democracy.

George Will | February 15, 2004

In the more than 250 days until Nov. 2, John Kerry can answer questions that linger in spite of, or because of, all he has said so far. Such as...
