Paul Jacob | May 09, 2004

Were terrorists to wipe out most of the Congress, how would republican government survive? Some fear the current plan to elect new congressmen won't work. The ensuing elections might be . . . uncompetitive!

Rich Tucker | May 09, 2004

Brent Bozell | May 07, 2004

It was awarded the status of top news, the front page of The New York Times. Disney was telling its Miramax subsidiary that it could not distribute radical, Bush-loathing Michael Moore's new 'mockumentary.'

Jonah Goldberg | May 07, 2004

CBS should be ashamed for running those photos.

David Limbaugh | May 07, 2004

Pictures, stories and commentaries about American soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners are dominating the news. They're everywhere. I agree this regrettable incident must be addressed, but let's not lose our heads over it.

Mona Charen | May 07, 2004

Today's picture on the front page of the newspaper shows a naked Iraqi prisoner on the floor. A leash is tied around his neck. Holding the leash is an American soldier.

Neal Boortz | May 07, 2004

To the surprise of absolutely nobody, one of the questions was whether or not Al Sharpton would be a speaker at the Democratic National Convention.

Jacob Sullum | May 07, 2004

Thu, May 06, 2004

Ann Coulter | May 06, 2004

Thomas Sowell | May 06, 2004

Those who imagine that collective decision-making by government officials is better than individual decision-making in a market economy should have been present at a recent meeting of the Planning Commission for the city of San Mateo, California.

Michael Barone | May 06, 2004

As fighting rages in Fallujah and Najaf, and as John Kerry explains that he threw his ribbons but not his medals over the wall in 1971, other things are happening that will shape the world and America's place in it for years to come.

Larry Elder | May 06, 2004

Had the terrorists released a "toxic cloud," Jordanian officials say 80,000 would have died!

War is hell. Nobody will ever improve on William Tecumseh Sherman's famous definition of his craft.

Debra J. Saunders | May 06, 2004

Thousands of American troops have put their lives on the line to liberate a country of strangers. Their sacrifice should not be overshadowed by the antics of a handful of thugs and fools.

Emmett Tyrrell | May 06, 2004

Where on earth are the press corps who so despised the alleged use of the prosecutor's office for political gain six years ago?

Jonah Goldberg | May 05, 2004

Ben Shapiro | May 05, 2004

Even on campus, Tillman's death in Afghanistan caused a good deal of grief, soul-searching and pride in our fighting men and women. But not everyone on campus was pro-Tillman.

Time may be proving that on this all-important question, Powell hit his target dead-on.

Linda Chavez | May 05, 2004

They make you want to turn away, those awful pictures of naked men piled into human pyramids while smirking American soldiers give the thumbs-up sign or grin inanely into the camera.

Chuck Colson | May 05, 2004

War is always ugly, and yet our military has done everything possible to see that the War in Iraq is a just war. That makes the photos of abuse even more repulsive.

Kathleen Parker | May 05, 2004

Shock and awe are back, this time in the images of U.S. soldiers humiliating Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison.

Tue, May 04, 2004

Thomas Sowell | May 04, 2004

David Limbaugh | May 04, 2004

John Kerry's persistent problems on the campaign trail should come as no surprise. There were reasons he couldn't get traction even with his own party prior to Howard Dean's implosion, and those reasons remain.

Dennis Prager | May 04, 2004

Of all the arguments against same-sex marriage, the most immediately compelling is that it is hurts children. If children have a right to anything, it is to begin life with a mother and father.

Summer is swiftly approaching and, with it, a yearly barometer of the public's confidence in both its nation's pocketbook and its own.

Imagine if the federal government passed a law that limited advertising of one political point of view.

Rich Lowry | May 04, 2004

Mon, May 03, 2004

Mike Adams | May 03, 2004

Cal Thomas | May 03, 2004

Let's raise a glass with Dubliners to the larger European Union. But given the history of Europe, I wouldn't bet more than a pint of Guinness on a successful outcome.

Suzanne Fields | May 03, 2004

Biography, like life, is unfair. It relentlessly documents the deeds of the past, but it's selective in interpretation. Biography is kind to some and merciless to others, but biography is not necessarily destiny for men who would be president.

Debra J. Saunders | May 03, 2004

The worst of it is, these critics seem to think that a country can go to war without making any mistakes.

Paul Jacob | May 03, 2004

'They had a gun to our head. They took hostages, and they promised to start shooting.' This is not the complaint of a victim of a horrible crime -- unless democracy is a horrible crime.

Phyllis Schlafly | May 03, 2004

A favorite argument of the people who support amnesty for illegal aliens goes something like this:

Bruce Bartlett | May 03, 2004

We may owe the slowness of the economic recovery to those who thought that phasing-in the 2001 tax cut was the "responsible" thing to do.

John Leo | May 03, 2004

In a deeply therapeutic culture, apologies function like secular sacraments. But more and more people demand them, while fewer and fewer are willing to give them.

Robert Novak | May 03, 2004

Readers of the Catholic Standard, official publication of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., raised their eyebrows two weeks ago.

Globalization has made us much more aware of religious persecution -- and has given us the obligation to do something about it.

Armstrong Williams | May 03, 2004

Sun, May 02, 2004

Pat Buchanan | May 02, 2004

Having told reporters repeatedly he has no recollection of being at Kansas City, how can he say what is likely the truth, that he heard the crazy talk, deplored it, denounced it, and got out of Dodge.

Rich Tucker | May 02, 2004

Looks like I might have to turn in my membership in the ?vast right wing conspiracy.? After all, while I favor lower taxes, smaller government and the war in Iraq, I?m missing a key criterion. I don?t own any guns.
