Paul Jacob | April 11, 2004

Americans are a do-it-yourself people. We figure out how things work. We fix things. Well, not me ? but my wife and most people.

Brent Bozell | April 10, 2004

Anyone with cable television in his or her home ought to have a sticker on the remote control warning: 'Subscribers with children under 18: Abandon hope, all you who push these buttons.'

Doug Giles | April 10, 2004

Islam is a religion we can no longer blow off like Courtney Love and relegate to a concerned but removed one-hour National Geographic special.

Debra J. Saunders | April 10, 2004

The National Commission on Terrorist Acts Upon the United States ostensibly has been exploring how the deadly Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks could have happened and how they could have been prevented.

Kathleen Parker | April 10, 2004

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.

Robert Novak | April 10, 2004

President Bush will go to Pittsburgh April 19 on a rescue mission attempting to save four-term Sen. Arlen Specter, who faces an increasingly serious conservative challenge from Rep. Pat Toomey in the April 27 Pennsylvania Republican primary.

David Limbaugh | April 09, 2004

As a man auditioning for commander in chief, John Kerry is hanging himself with his own words. I just hope enough people are listening -- and paying attention. It's stunning, actually.

Mona Charen | April 09, 2004

As American and coalition soldiers are fired upon in Iraq, we may be seeing the radiating ripples of the Spanish election. If terror can succeed in Madrid, why not in Fallujah and Basra and Ramadi?

Neal Boortz | April 09, 2004

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.

Oliver North | April 09, 2004

Kennedy, whose own honesty, integrity and judgment have been called into question on numerous occasions throughout his career, charged the Bush administration with 'creat(ing) the largest credibility gap since Richard Nixon.'

Jacob Sullum | April 09, 2004

According to the U.S. Justice Department, I may have just committed a felony.

George Will | April 09, 2004

Rice's testimony also came in the context of Clarke's book. In one crucial particular, her testimony and his book are congruent.

Bruce Bartlett | April 09, 2004

Last week, John Kerry spoke about the need for getting the deficit under control in a speech at Georgetown University.

Charles Krauthammer | April 09, 2004

In half a century, places like Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea have gone from subsistence to First World status.

Thu, Apr 08, 2004

Ann Coulter | April 08, 2004

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.

Thomas Sowell | April 08, 2004

Signs that the "jobless recovery" is starting to generate jobs after all should not prevent our looking at some of the factors in the earlier slow growth of employment while the economy was growing vigorously otherwise.

Larry Elder | April 08, 2004

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.

Suzanne Fields | April 08, 2004

We inhabit a time and place in human history rife with irresistible scientific experimentation that threatens to outrun the ability of traditional morality to regulate it.

Debra J. Saunders | April 08, 2004

It doesn't reflect well on San Francisco State University that President Robert Corrigan has announced that he is considering axing the entire School of Engineering to close a budget gap.

Rich Tucker | April 08, 2004

Remarkably, Paul Krugman hasn?t yet written a column blaming President Bush for killing White House trees. But he?s blamed the administration for just about everything else.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 08, 2004

If, as Sen. Teddy Kennedy rumbled recently, Iraq is President George W. Bush's Vietnam, surely the silver-haired senator is becoming Bush's Jane Fonda.

Chuck Colson | April 08, 2004

What would you expect to be playing at the movies in the Middle East this Holy Week? One thing you might not expect is "The Passion of the Christ."

Rich Lowry | April 08, 2004

Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart, died in 1992. Little did he know he would be remembered in certain quarters as a kind of corporate criminal. His offense?

Marvin Olasky | April 08, 2004

The four good Rocky movies (skip Rocky V, please) had a common plot element. Out of low or high self-esteem, the boxer isn't doing what he is called to do: train hard and have the 'eye of the tiger.'

Alan Reynolds | April 08, 2004

Every year about this time, the nation's leading newspapers and business magazines begin to compete to see who can appear most outraged about how much the top corporate CEOs were paid during the previous year.

Ross Mackenzie | April 08, 2004

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.

John McCaslin | April 08, 2004

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.

Wed, Apr 07, 2004

Thomas Sowell | April 07, 2004

A dispute about how tall the city of San Mateo, California, will allow buildings to be built may seem like a completely local problem that no one outside of San Mateo should care about.

Michelle Malkin | April 07, 2004

Brawley (who now calls herself Maryam Muhammad) is all grown up. But her psychologically stunted heirs continue to soak up public sympathy and squander police resources.

Walter E. Williams | April 07, 2004

Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines magician as "one who performs tricks of illusion and sleight of hand" and "one skilled in magic," a "sorcerer."

Brent Bozell | April 07, 2004

Thanks to the historic box-office bonanza of Mel Gibson's movie 'The Passion of the Christ' ($330 million and rising), the topic of religion is 'hot' right now.

Jonah Goldberg | April 07, 2004

I've been waiting for the white-hot rage generated by Dick Clarke - and the White House's response to him - to cool down to a nice umber before I offered this conclusion:

Cal Thomas | April 07, 2004

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.

Ben Shapiro | April 07, 2004

It turns out that liberals are right. For years now, the American government has established state religion. No, it's not evangelical Christianity. It's Scientology.

Terry Jeffrey | April 07, 2004

I recently read 'The Tumult and the Shouting,' the memoirs of famed sportswriter Grantland Rice, back to back with 'Against All Enemies,' the memoirs of former National Security Council aide Richard Clarke.

Linda Chavez | April 07, 2004

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.

Kathleen Parker | April 07, 2004

Much has been made of Condoleezza Rice's upcoming testimony before the 9-11 Commission.

George Will | April 07, 2004

After last week's murder of four American civilian contractors in Fallujah, U.S. leadership in Baghdad promised that the response against that city would be 'precise' and 'overwhelming.'

Armstrong Williams | April 07, 2004

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.

Thomas Sowell | April 06, 2004

Now that the case against Tyco executives has ended in a mistrial, there is much outcry against the juror whose holdout will cause a $12 million trial to have to be done all over again from scratch.

David Limbaugh | April 06, 2004

The massacres and mutilations in Fallujah and the coordinated Shiite rebellion in other Iraqi cities should strengthen, rather than weaken American resolve to stay the course in Iraq.

Dennis Prager | April 06, 2004

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?

Debra J. Saunders | April 06, 2004

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.

Matt Towery | April 06, 2004

The 2004 Major League Baseball season starts this week with the knowledge that a bare minimum of 5 percent of players were caught last season using performance-enhancing drugs.

Maggie Gallagher | April 06, 2004

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.

John McCaslin | April 06, 2004

He's been on Capitol Hill longer that any other lawmaker today, having cast his first vote in the House on Jan. 8, 1959. At the time, this columnist was 14 months old.

William F. Buckley | April 06, 2004

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.

Joel Mowbray | April 06, 2004

Witnessing the gruesome attacks on four Americans in Fallujah last week would thoroughly sicken any fellow American?except for one very prominent American-Muslim organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Bruce Bartlett | April 06, 2004

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.

Mon, Apr 05, 2004

Mike Adams | April 05, 2004

Some people say that a conservative is a liberal who?s been mugged. Maybe an N.R.A. member is a liberal whose unarmed friends were killed by the side of the highway on a cold night in January.

Cal Thomas | April 05, 2004

President Bush's greatest asset is not his former special assistant, Karen Hughes, who will soon be returning to "active duty" following a tour to promote her new book to help him with his re-election campaign. It is his wife, Laura.

Suzanne Fields | April 05, 2004

We're supposed to learn lessons from history, but the lessons we learn depend on who's writing the history - and who's reading it.

Diana West | April 05, 2004

It must have been last week's sound and fury that obscured the "signifying nothing" part of Richard Clarke's 9/11 commission testimony.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 05, 2004

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.

John Leo | April 05, 2004

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.

Rich Lowry | April 05, 2004

How is this for a historic reversal? Last week, Senate Democrats successfully filibustered the nation's most important anti-poverty measure -- welfare reform.

Chuck Colson | April 05, 2004

Ji Hae Nam was a loyal member of North Korea's Workers Party, but that didn't help when she was arrested for singing.

Jack Kemp | April 05, 2004

The hot-button issue for the Democratic Party this year is "outsourcing," the latest political euphemism that seeks to stigmatize companies voting with their feet and escaping high taxes and onerous regulations that drive up the cost of labor.

Robert Novak | April 05, 2004

Rep. Sue Myrick of Charlotte, N.C., a conservative star of the famous Republican congressional class of 1994, has just about had it with the way the world works on Capitol Hill.

Armstrong Williams | April 05, 2004

Senator John Kerry wants you to know that he participated in war crimes while serving in Vietnam.

Sun, Apr 04, 2004

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.
