Paul Jacob | March 14, 2004

Politics, we are told, makes for strange bedfellows. But the orgy of bad policy that erupts out of legislative assemblies around the country stretches the metaphor.

William F. Buckley | March 14, 2004

The good news is that there is public pressure to maintain standards of some sort in public scenes and over the airwaves.

George Will | March 14, 2004

Now in his third year as superintendent of this city's schools, Romer is the Don Rumsfeld of domestic policy.

Brent Bozell | March 13, 2004

In the surging surf of the trashy tidal wave known as the Super Bowl Halftime Show, radio shock jocks are a very unhappy lot.

Doug Giles | March 13, 2004

No matter what your Marxist, lesbian, long-toothed, community college history teacher sporting a bad haircut, stretch pants and stale coffee breath says, the vast majority of the founding fathers of our great nation were deeply committed Christians. I?m talkin? deep.

Bruce Bartlett | March 13, 2004

The lack of employment growth continues to be the major political-economic problem facing the country, and it likely will remain that way through Election Day.

Robert Novak | March 13, 2004

When Republicans Wednesday night rushed through a $6.9 billion restoration of defense funds requested by President Bush, they were forestalling a suspected effort by Sen. John Kerry to polish his national security record by seeking extra money for the military.

Kathleen Parker | March 13, 2004

Forget Ralph Nader. In a perfect world, Sen. John Vasconcellos - the California assemblyman who created a task force on self-esteem and now wants children to vote - would be president for life.

Jonah Goldberg | March 12, 2004

I'm trying to gird my loins - how does one do that by the way? - for the campaign everyone says will get "even nastier" between now and November.

Mike Adams | March 12, 2004

I am truly sorry for the confusion. I also have a few questions before I go.

David Limbaugh | March 12, 2004

Undeniably, a culture war is still raging in this country, but it's not much of a war because the good guys are barely fighting back. Is there anything that can shock the so-called majority out of its complacency?

Mona Charen | March 12, 2004

We know they don't want to talk about what really happens in an abortion. But refusing to provide redacted medical records to the court is chutzpah on stilts.

Oliver North | March 12, 2004

While it is unfortunate that Abbas avoided having to stand trial and answer for his crimes, the American public can take comfort in the fact that he was in American custody, and there is one less terrorist in the world today.

Debra J. Saunders | March 12, 2004

The House of Representatives voted 276 to 139 Wednesday to pass the Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act -- also known as the "cheeseburger bill" -- to prohibit overweight Americans from suing the food industry for their avoirdupois.

Jacob Sullum | March 12, 2004

In a press release issued the day before the House approved the Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act by a 2-to-1 margin, he said the bill "is surely premature, because there has been only one obesity lawsuit, and it was dismissed by a federal judge."

Rich Tucker | March 12, 2004

When is the next time we?ll see a nipple on broadcast television? Or hear the f-word at an awards show? Not anytime soon.

Charles Krauthammer | March 12, 2004

Look. I know it is shooting French in a barrel. But when yet another insufferable penseur -- first Chirac, then de Villepin, now the editor of Le Monde -- starts lecturing Americans on how they ought to conduct themselves in the world, the rules of decorum are suspended.

Thu, Mar 11, 2004

Ann Coulter | March 11, 2004

William Safire, the New York Times' in-house "conservative" ? who endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992, like so many conservatives ? was sure Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" would incite anti-Semitic violence. Thus far, the pogroms have failed to materialize.

Larry Elder | March 11, 2004

In a recent strip, two young black characters considered renaming what they call the "Most Embarrassing Black People" award. One character suggested calling the award the "Larry Elder." My, my.

Suzanne Fields | March 11, 2004

The quest for homosexual marriage is a quest for convention and conformity over viva la difference.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 11, 2004

Recently, I have been making my own scholarly contribution to political scientists' understanding of the 2004 election by identifying a rising new constituency within the electorate, the moron vote.

John McCaslin | March 11, 2004

Both houses of Congress, or so it is ordered by resolution, are to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first meeting of the Republican Party.

Joel Mowbray | March 11, 2004

Turn on the Korea Central News Agency in recent days, and you?d be likely to hear John Kerry?s foreign policy speeches receiving lavish praise normally reserved for the man who runs the broadcaster?and pretty much everything else in North Korea: Kim Jong-Il.

Alan Reynolds | March 11, 2004

The unemployment rate has fallen by half a percentage point over the past six months. If it merely continues to drop at the same pace, unemployment will be 5.1 percent in another six months (August) and below 5 percent before the election.

Ross Mackenzie | March 11, 2004

Quotations on topics currently in the news.

Larry Kudlow | March 11, 2004

It is extremely rare for 10-year Treasury bond yields and commodity prices to move in opposite directions. Yet that's exactly what's happening now.

Robert Novak | March 11, 2004

When Sen. John Kerry was interviewed on foreign policy in Houston last Friday by New York Times reporters, he made news by declaring that as president he "would have been prepared to send troops immediately" to save Jean-Bertrand Aristide as president of Haiti.

Rich Lowry | March 11, 2004

Are courtesy and cheerfulness religious tenets? Is building a campfire a sacred rite? Is a neckerchief the equivalent of a priest's stole?

Marvin Olasky | March 11, 2004

"The Lord of the Rings," with its subtext of God's providential guiding, and "The Passion," with its in-your-face text of Christ's suffering for us, have been the big movie successes of the past few months.

George Will | March 11, 2004

Some critics of President Bush's policy regarding elementary and secondary education have an alternative. It is: Let's leave lots of children behind.

Wed, Mar 10, 2004

Thomas Sowell | March 10, 2004

A recent issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education had the front-page headline: "The Global Debate Over Affirmative Action." Inside, there were five full pages on group quotas in Brazil, India, and Malaysia.

Michelle Malkin | March 10, 2004

Those oh-so-compassionate liberals could hardly contain their glee upon hearing the news that Attorney General John Ashcroft is suffering from a severe case of gallstone pancreatitis.

Walter E. Williams | March 10, 2004

What passes for educational enlightenment these days boggles the mind. Matt Gouras, of The Associated Press, writing in the Jan. 5 Seattle Times tells a story about Tennessee schools.

Brent Bozell | March 10, 2004

The Democrats thought they had an angle to trip up the Bush campaign, and they pushed it. Say, didn't those ads flash about a second of pictures of September 11? Well, yes, and so what?

Jonah Goldberg | March 10, 2004

I understand these are jokes. But it's not clear that Glickman & Co. do. Isn't it interesting that they don't care if kids get the message to be lazy, slutty drunks - so long as they vote?

Tony Blankley | March 10, 2004

In the absence of any public evidence that he has met with several foreign leaders recently, the burden of proof should be on Sen. Kerry to prove that he didn't just make up this little story that he told a small group of Florida contributors.

Cal Thomas | March 10, 2004

It does not diminish the Herculean effort in Iraq, the sacrifice of young men and women fighting for the freedom of others that they enjoy or the political price being paid by the Bush administration to question whether the interim constitution signed in Baghdad on Monday (March 8) will end the post-war fighting and establish respect for the human rights of all.

Terry Jeffrey | March 10, 2004

Ratified in 1980, the treaty allows Mexico not to surrender suspected murderers wanted in the U.S. unless U.S. prosecutors waive the death penalty.

Ben Shapiro | March 10, 2004

Purim reminds Jews, and the world, of the ever-present threat posed by today's Amalekites. Purim is not about dress up or drinking, noise making or gift giving. It is about recognizing that evil still exists and that God obligates mankind to obliterate it.

Linda Chavez | March 10, 2004

President Bush's new campaign ads, which feature fleeting images of firemen removing the remains of victims from the attack on the World Trade Center, have ignited a firestorm of criticism from the union representing New York firefighters.

Maggie Gallagher | March 10, 2004

When it comes to race, separate is inherently unequal. Gender is different.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 10, 2004

One day, I heard the voice of Marlin Maddoux. Somehow I "stumbled" across his show, "Point of View," on a local Christian radio station and, in so doing, found my oasis.

Chuck Colson | March 10, 2004

If we lose the battle to save marriage, it will be a tragedy. If we lose the rule of law at the same time -- a real possibility -- it will be a catastrophe.

Armstrong Williams | March 10, 2004

So, why are so many minorities dropping out of high school?

William F. Buckley | March 10, 2004

The film by Mel Gibson is moving because of its central contention, namely that an innocent man of high moral purpose was tortured and killed.

Kathleen Parker | March 10, 2004

With Saddam out of his spider hole, and now regime change at Martha Stewart's empire, I dunno, I just feel safer somehow.

Thomas Sowell | March 09, 2004

Few issues have produced as much confused thinking as the "gay marriage" issue.

David Limbaugh | March 09, 2004

My educated guess is that one of Senator Kerry's chief campaign strategies will be to use "negative campaigning" as both a sword and a shield.

Dennis Prager | March 09, 2004

I am used to being caricatured -- "Far-Right Columnist Compares Same-Sex Marriage Advocates to Islamic Terrorists" -- rather than have my arguments against redefining marriage responded to.

Debra J. Saunders | March 09, 2004

Sept. 11 belongs neither to one political group nor to Bush, but to America. It was a nation-shaping moment and thus belongs to even American politics, all of American politics.

Matt Towery | March 09, 2004

Despite all this, we now have the likes of billionaire sage Warren Buffett telling us how the Bush administration's tax policies favor wealthy people and big corporations.

Joel Mowbray | March 09, 2004

This Wednesday, March 10th, is a holiday with which you may not be familiar, but should be: the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers.

John McCaslin | March 09, 2004

One thing that has become apparent within the Bush White House is that not everybody agrees with everybody all the time.

John Leo | March 09, 2004

Many public officials around the country seem to have contracted the San Francisco Disease, or SFD. This is the highly contagious ailment that convinces the stricken that it's all right to ignore laws they disagree with.

Jack Kemp | March 09, 2004

As usual, the word from the Middle East recently has been a mixture of good news, bad news. One piece of good news is that the Iraqi Governing Council has signed an interim constitution establishing a framework for democratic self-rule.

Mon, Mar 08, 2004

Mike Adams | March 08, 2004

On March 16th, 2004, the UNC-Wilmington Women?s Resource Center (WRC) will be hosting a speech by the Guerilla Girls. This group of anonymous feminists will be paid $6000 of public funds to dress up like apes, throw bananas at the audience, and campaign against George W. Bush.

Cal Thomas | March 08, 2004

Two comments about law may bring some clarity to the raging debate over same-sex "marriage" and other issues that shape our destiny.

Suzanne Fields | March 08, 2004

You could almost think that Rosie O'Donnell is an angry heterosexual on a selfless mission.

Diana West | March 08, 2004

What does John Kerry stand for? This is now the political parlor game of the election season upon us. Of course, what doesn't John Kerry stand for?

Phyllis Schlafly | March 08, 2004

Abortion has been legal in the United States for more than 30 years, yet little is publicly known about the practices of this billion-dollar industry.

Robert Novak | March 08, 2004

State Sen. Fred Smith, a rising new face in North Carolina Republican politics, told me the GOP will be saved here by conservative social values -- in particular, opposition to gay marriage.

Rich Lowry | March 08, 2004

For the Left, it has long been as axiomatic as the third law of thermodynamics: Teenagers will have sex, and there's nothing to be done about it.

Bruce Bartlett | March 08, 2004

There is a growing backlash against outsourcing--sending domestic work to foreign businesses--that erupted in the Senate last week, where anti-outsourcing legislation was adopted on a 70 to 26 vote. Opponents of outsourcing cheered, but investors are becoming aware that these actions threaten profits and stock prices.

Brent Bozell | March 07, 2004

For several weeks now, the national media have looked like the servile monkey to Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe's organ grinder.

Paul Jacob | March 07, 2004

The oldest legislature in the nation, the Virginia General Assembly, is a tax and budget train-wreck. It is also Exhibit A in the case against the politicians who have hijacked our system of citizen-controlled government.

Ross Mackenzie | March 07, 2004

A mythical conversation with John Kerry. The questions are drawn from fact. The responses are logic-based fantasy...

William F. Buckley | March 07, 2004

From all ideological quarters, people are pushing and pulling in the matter of Social Security reform.

George Will | March 07, 2004

The 100 eventful days since the president's Thanksgiving visit to Baghdad confirm just how much events are in the saddle, riding the candidates who promise to control events.
