President-elect John F. Kerry's rise to the nation's highest office came as little surprise following almost four years of remonstrations against President George W. Bush for his bizarre attack on the defenseless people of Afghanistan.
A caller to my talk show earlier this week was trying to explain his support for John Kerry. He particularly liked Kerry?s plan to increase taxes on the highest income earners.
Sean Hannity's latest book, "Deliver Us From Evil," is even better than his last. It hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list the week it came out and stayed there for at least five weeks. This explains the huge cover story on Hannity in the latest New York Times magazine, as well as that big NPR profile on him ? wait, neither of those happened. Indeed, not a single major mainstream newspaper has reviewed it.
Aldrich, like Clarke, spent 30 years with government. I recently interviewed Aldrich, and we discussed Clarke's accusations, the media's reaction to his book, and the virtual shutout Aldrich experienced when he attempted to promote his book.
Word comes that John Kerry may name his running mate by June 1. The suggested possibilities range from relative unknowns, such as the governor of Virginia, to John McCain, to Hillary and even Bill.
Continuing our series of features leading up to this summer's Democratic and Republican conventions in Boston and New York respectively, we pay a visit to the historic Ritz-Carlton in Boston, where doorman Norman Pashoian has been waiting ever so patiently for the politicians to come calling.
The state of Virginia, the home of presidents who believed in small government, low taxes and personal responsibility, may be about to join the big taxing and spending federal government with the help of the party that claims the heritage of some of the nation's Founders.
Condoleezza Rice faces not just the 9/11 commission this week but the specter of Richard Clarke, the disgruntled former National Security Council terrorism expert who did his best to undermine the credibility of his former boss when he testified before the commission on March 24.
For obvious reasons, Dodd neglected to mention that Byrd is a former Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan. Nor did Dodd dwell on the fact that Byrd voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or that Byrd broadcast his racial insensitivity by using the N-word during a 2001 appearance on Fox News.
Golly gee, Muslim terrorists tried to attack Madrid again. How can that be? Wasn't Muslim terror in Spain supposed to end once Spain appeased the terrorists by voting in the socialists?
Shortly after Spanish voters rewarded the terrorists responsible for the Madrid bombing that killed 191 people -- by electing a Socialist prime minister despite polling that showed the ruling Popular Party winning before the attacks -- the thugs are back making threats.
Since 1993, the Southern Baptist Church has sponsored the "True Love Waits" campaign, getting several million teenage girls to take public pledges to wait until marriage before they have sex.
For those who grew up politically as conservatives, the invocation of 'leadership' brought on skepticism. We remembered, with suspicion, calls on FDR to exercise leadership by, in effect, commandeering the U.S. economy and devising a behind-the-scenes campaign to involve us in a world war.
Just in time for tax season, the Congressional Budget Office has released new data on distribution of the tax burden. Contrary to popular belief, they show that taxes on the wealthy have risen over time and that the Bush tax cut in 2001 barely kept it from rising further.
The atheists just had their day before the U.S. Supreme Court, but they are not in good spirits about it. Their attempt to strike "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance now looks like a legal boomerang.
The Anti-Defamation League is dedicated to opposing hatred, particularly hatred of Jews. Its recent activities include support for abortion and gay rights, backing the effort to remove Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore from the bench in the Ten Commandments case, and opposing school vouchers in Washington, D.C.
