Paul Jacob | April 04, 2004

You?ve probably never heard of Jack Adsit, but he?s one of my heroes. He?s a veteran of ?the big one?--World War II--and traces his lineage all the way back to Adsits, a father and son, who fought in the Revolutionary War.

George Will | April 04, 2004

The special task force for the ``Commissioner's Initiative: Major League Baseball in the 21st Century,'' on which this columnist serves, knows that the national pastime, like the nation, is prone to hypochondria.

Doug Giles | April 03, 2004

Before 9/11, President George W. Bush seemed like a mediocre President, concerned with mediocre issues, whose defeat in the next election was already being prophesied by the Democrats ? and the Liberal Media?s Axis of Drivel.

Robert Novak | April 03, 2004

Democratic political operatives are worried about the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign's ability to quickly transform gaffes by presidential candidate John Kerry into effective television ads.

Kathleen Parker | April 03, 2004

I suppose it would be considered lacking in nuance to nuke the Sunni Triangle.

Brent Bozell | April 02, 2004

In every presidential cycle, MTV airs a pile of "Choose or Lose" specials to match major candidates with typically embarrassing young questioners.

David Limbaugh | April 02, 2004

Since Democrats will only tell us how much they loathe President Bush and what he's doing wrong in the War on Terror, never offering their solutions for us to critique, let me tell you a few things I fear about a Kerry presidency.

Mona Charen | April 02, 2004

There he was, the 27-year-old John Kerry, hair spilling down over his eyes, Kennedyesque a's (as in "cahn't imagine") rolling off his tongue, and lanky legs seeking room on the cramped talk show set.

Neal Boortz | April 02, 2004

There was a little-noticed meeting in New York City last week; a meeting on the rarified upper floors of the UN building. Kofi Annan was having a little sit-down with the head of ICANN.

Oliver North | April 02, 2004

The photos are horrific. The most recent shows children in Fallujah, Iraq, dancing gleefully while teen-agers tear at the immolated bodies of four murdered American aid workers.

Rich Tucker | April 02, 2004

That?s what makes Vegas different from Washington. Here, you can make money on something that?s already happened. You simply have to claim to have foreseen it.

Jacob Sullum | April 02, 2004

When I started working in journalism, strips of copy had to be physically cut and pasted onto boards, which were then photographed to make printing plates.

Bruce Bartlett | April 02, 2004

Faced with the reality that there was nothing they could do about outsourcing even if they wanted to, Republicans are slowly going on the offensive.

Larry Kudlow | April 02, 2004

The blowout new-jobs number of 308,000 for March puts the lie to political charges by the Kerry Democrats that the United States is in a jobless recovery. This is the largest gain in monthly non-farm payrolls in four years.

Charles Krauthammer | April 02, 2004

Indeed, one has to admire it -- the most cynical and brilliantly delivered apology in recent memory: Richard Clarke using the nationally televised Sept. 11 commission hearings to address the families of the victims.

Joel Mowbray | April 02, 2004

Perhaps the starkest contrast voters have in front of them this fall has nothing to do with taxes or health care or even strategy on the war on terror.

Thu, Apr 01, 2004

Ann Coulter | April 01, 2004

We don't need a "commission" to find out how 9-11 happened. The truth is in the timeline:

Larry Elder | April 01, 2004

If Kerry goes down in the fall, trace the blame to . . . Butchy Cataldo.

Suzanne Fields | April 01, 2004

Berlin is an ugly city of considerable beauty. Historical memory, like its architecture, is an aesthetic mix of emotions - crude and sumptuous, vulgar and ambitious, hateful and generous.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 01, 2004

I believe the Democrats are onto something. I believe they have devised a very clever plan to stop Sen. John Francois Kerry's decline in the polls.

Maggie Gallagher | April 01, 2004

When the bodies of Laci and Conner Peterson washed ashore on the California coastline, the authorities had no problem recognizing two bodies, two victims, two crimes. Scott Peterson now faces double-homicide charges.

Marvin Olasky | April 01, 2004

Evocative images, provocative thoughts, tension without pretension -- that's what makes for good writing.

Rich Lowry | April 01, 2004

If Democrats believe anything these days, it is that it is wrong to question anyone's patriotism. For John Kerry, this is a matter of sacred conviction.

John McCaslin | April 01, 2004

My first experience with post-Soviet Georgia's autonomous republic of Adjara was when Hillary Rodham Clinton's younger brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, sought to firmly establish the family in the nut business by importing hazelnuts from its Black Sea capital of Batumi.

Ross Mackenzie | April 01, 2004

The presidential campaign has gone full-steam. Contemplating the prospects, the mind recalls O. Henry's "It is a rat trap, and you, madam and sir and all of us, are in it - and yearns to head for the hills."

Chuck Colson | April 01, 2004

"Boys will be boys," we used to say. Now, at Brown University, Charles Colson's alma mater, and elsewhere, it's more like, "Boys will be boys unless they choose to be something else."

William F. Buckley | April 01, 2004

The response given to Richard Clarke's apology for 9/11 is instructive. We assume he was sincere in tendering it, and, manifestly, the family members of the victims who heard him were sincere in their full-throated appreciation.

Michelle Malkin | March 31, 2004

There is a guerrilla group on the loose in this country. But you wouldn't know it from the liberal media, which portrays the group's members as harmless activists with good hearts.

Walter E. Williams | March 31, 2004

Here?s my no-brainer question to you: Do you suppose that Maryland enacted its gasoline minimum-price law because irate customers complained to the state legislature that gasoline prices were too low?

Brent Bozell | March 31, 2004

Tom Brokaw was playing government watchdog the other night, interviewing Condoleezza Rice right in the middle of the 'NBC Nightly News.'

Jonah Goldberg | March 31, 2004

All of this is moot, of course, since we are locked into the June 30 deadline. But it's worth looking at the big picture and asking ourselves whether elections should be the last thing on our checklist for Iraq or the Middle East.

Tony Blankley | March 31, 2004

John Kerry's presidential candidacy has all the makings of a classic flop -- in the modern sidesplitting tradition of Thomas Dewey, Adlai Stevenson, George McGovern, Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis.

Cal Thomas | March 31, 2004

What should be the issue is not how much of our money Congress will allow us to keep, but how much of our money we will allow Congress to spend.

Ben Shapiro | March 31, 2004

It's not often that we hear inspirational news coming from America's college campuses. But this week at my home school, Republicans struck a blow for free speech.

Terry Jeffrey | March 31, 2004

John F. Kerry, the first Catholic presidential nominee since John F. Kennedy, may be heading for a confrontation with some bishops of his own church.

Linda Chavez | March 31, 2004

The president's decision to send National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice to testify publicly, under oath, before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks is not likely to quell the furor.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 31, 2004

Someone needs to tell Congress about the First Rule of Holes: If you're in one, stop digging.

Kathleen Parker | March 31, 2004

When Sen. John F. Kerry fell - or was toppled by a Secret Service agent - from his perch on a snowboard recently, the would-be president clarified events with rare grace:

Bruce Bartlett | March 31, 2004

Last Friday, John Kerry unveiled his long-awaited economic plan -- one that he says will create 10 million new jobs in the United States. It's an extraordinarily unambitious plan, one that relies primarily on two tax gimmicks of dubious value.

John McCaslin | March 31, 2004

During a recent question-and-answer session with reporters in Chicago, first lady Laura Bush was asked: 'Mrs. Bush, as you enter into this next political campaign, perhaps your husband's last. ...'

Thomas Sowell | March 30, 2004

From time to time some kind readers suggest that I run for public office, including President of the United States. No need for those on the left to panic. It is not going to happen.

David Limbaugh | March 30, 2004

I am getting more incredulous by the day. What started out as a long-shot Democratic strategy to damage President Bush's credibility as commander-in-chief (CIC) through preposterous allegations has now ripened into faux legitimacy.

Dennis Prager | March 30, 2004

America is also unique in that it has always combined secular government with a society based on religious values.

Matt Towery | March 30, 2004

Our most recent survey illustrates how almost equally divided the electorate is on subjects ranging from the presidential election to the future of the stock market.

Bill Murchison | March 30, 2004

Couldn't we just turn off "The Dick Clarke Show" for a little while and reflect that, contrary to widespread belief, there's a war on?

George Will | March 30, 2004

By the eighth day Clarke was telling Tim Russert that the difference is that Clinton did ``something'' whereas Bush did ``nothing.'' Nothing except, among other things, authorizing a quadrupling of spending for covert action against al Qaeda.

Mike Adams | March 29, 2004

After eleven years of teaching at a public university, I finally got a call from one of my superiors informing me that I had made one of my co-workers feel ?uncomfortable? in the workplace.

Cal Thomas | March 29, 2004

The other day a lesbian Methodist pastor was acquitted on charges stemming from her sexual orientation and will continue in her ministry.

Suzanne Fields | March 29, 2004

It's a truism of our trade that when the newsmagazines discover a trend, it's usually a trend well spent. But Time magazine might be on to something real, important and lasting.

Diana West | March 29, 2004

Only one of Clarke's accounts can be true, but which one? This is an important question, one the media must try to answer. If they don't, then they are the ones who should blush.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 29, 2004

In a world of inhumanity, war and terrorism, U.S. citizenship is a precious possession. It affords rights that the citizens of other countries can only dream of.

Robert Novak | March 29, 2004

In the 1990s, hard-line national security experts outside the government regarded Richard Clarke as a rare kindred soul inside the Clinton administration.

Armstrong Williams | March 29, 2004

Thomas Jefferson worried that if our leaders could punish sin, the law could become a straightjacket to individual liberties. Conversely, John Adams worried about the corrupting influence government might have on religious practice.

John Leo | March 29, 2004

Dick Lamm, public policy gadfly and former Democratic governor of Colorado, is being denounced these days as a right-wing extremist, a neo-Nazi and a racist.

Rich Lowry | March 29, 2004

In explaining the discrepancy between previous comments he made about President Bush's anti-terrorism policy and the harsh ones that he is making now, Richard Clarke has said the difference is a matter of 'tenor and tone.'

Jack Kemp | March 29, 2004

Richard Clark. Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned.

Joel Mowbray | March 29, 2004

As we?re learning from the 9/11 commission, if the United States hadn?t squandered its many opportunities to kill Osama bin Laden before 2001, there?s a good chance 3,000 Americans would not have perished on September 11th.

Paul Jacob | March 28, 2004

It's an election year, so we can expect a lot of nonsense. But more important than "who said what" and "what did he know and when did he know it" are the more general myths we vote by.

George Will | March 28, 2004

After eight years at Robert F. Kennedy Elementary School, Ethel Bojorquez knows a thing or two about teaching. She radiates calm, no-nonsense authority, and today she is watching a kindred spirit, Carole Valleskey, put Bojorquez's 35 fourth- and fifth-graders briskly through their paces.
