Thomas Sowell | July 11, 2004

To those who do not want to face up to hard and brutal choices in a nuclear age, the magic formula is to turn to something called 'the international community' -- or, more concretely, the United Nations or 'our European allies.'

Paul Jacob | July 11, 2004

The future of America does not hinge on the outcome of this August's primary election for tax collector in Seminole County, Florida. But then again, maybe in a way it does.

George Will | July 11, 2004

Under Washington's new scorched-earth ethic of bitter partisanship, there is a supermajority requirement for any significant action.

Doug Giles | July 10, 2004

The terrorists would love nothing more than to keep us trembling before their heavily bearded, wild-eyed, non-prophetic, violent maledictions.

Robert Novak | July 10, 2004

Tentative plans are being discussed inside the Kerry-Edwards campaign to send vice-presidential candidate John Edwards to Iraq as soon as possible.

Kathleen Parker | July 10, 2004

When framed as a plea for equal rights, the argument carries the day with most fair-minded Americans.

Larry Kudlow | July 10, 2004

Has the choice of John Edwards as John Kerry's running mate re-scrambled the election odds for November?

Fri, Jul 09, 2004

Thomas Sowell | July 09, 2004

Now that Senator John Kerry has named Senator John Edwards as his vice-presidential running mate, we need to examine the reality behind the images that both men have projected.

Brent Bozell | July 09, 2004

Who would have imagined five years ago that the fad, the rage, the phenomenon of network television would be the 'reality' show?

Jonah Goldberg | July 09, 2004

By now you've probably heard about what Bill Cosby's up to.

David Limbaugh | July 09, 2004

I couldn't help but notice (and lament) the subtle digs the partisan media took at President Bush when he observed the 40th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act on July 1.

Mona Charen | July 09, 2004

Well, they got the hair part right. 'We think this is a dream team,' Sen. Kerry announced at his first joint appearance with John Edwards.

Oliver North | July 09, 2004

To stay in the U.N. asylum as it currently exists and allow Kofi Annan to dictate U.S. security policy is insane.

Ed Feulner | July 09, 2004

Amending the Constitution is serious business. There?s a reason it?s been done only 27 times over the last two centuries.

Rich Tucker | July 09, 2004

It?s tempting to compare Sen. John Edwards with former Vice President Dan Quayle. But that would be unfair. To Dan Quayle.

Charles Krauthammer | July 09, 2004

Whenever we become lax and forgetful about how the world changed on 9/11, former chief inspector Blix is there to make the case for mindless complacency.

Thu, Jul 08, 2004

Ann Coulter | July 08, 2004

I guess with John Kerry's choice of John Edwards as his running mate, he really does want to stand up for all Americans, from those worth only $60 million to those worth in excess of $800 million.

Thomas Sowell | July 08, 2004

This may go down in history as the year when an attempt to win an election, at all costs, led to longer run disasters that make any election pale into insignificance.

Larry Elder | July 08, 2004

Attributing their financial woes to the government-forced two-day commercial aircraft grounding, they asked for a package worth $24 billion in cash, loan guarantees and tax cuts.

Mike Adams | July 08, 2004

On Thursday July 8, I will be running an article entitled 'Gimme back my lesbian, midget, Asian schoolgirl porn.' Because of the article?s highly offensive language and imagery, Jonathan Garthwaite and I have agreed not to send it to Townhall readers in tomorrow?s Opinion Alert. Instead, the article will only appear on

Suzanne Fields | July 08, 2004

Brando, by contrast, wanted to indulge in the pursuits of the aggressive male while suggesting innocence and sensitivity. He wanted his cake with ice cream.

Emmett Tyrrell | July 08, 2004

In London last week while lunching with the eminent historian and Churchill biographer Sir Martin Gilbert, I watched the third youngest woman tennis player ever to win Wimbledon achieve that pinnacle.

Larry Kudlow | July 08, 2004

Edwards may be an attractive personality and an effective communicator, but on policy substance -- namely torts, trade, and taxes -- he?s resoundingly anti-growth and prosperity.

Ross Mackenzie | July 08, 2004

John Edwards brings to the Kerry cause two principal assets: an optimism contrasting with Kerry's lugubrious pessimism and - during the Democratic presidential primaries - a refusal to go negative on his opponents.

Marvin Olasky | July 08, 2004

I haven't written an April Fool's Day column for WORLD yet, and I don't plan to start now -- readers expect the our pages to include non-fiction, not bad jokes -- but I do want to report one experience last year where the joke was on me.

Chuck Colson | July 08, 2004

Why all of a sudden do same-sex couples want to be married? Maybe the answer is found in how modern marriage has been redefined.

Robert Novak | July 08, 2004

Whatever John Edwards does for a Democratic ticket led by John Kerry, he does not bring it balance.

Rich Lowry | July 08, 2004

The clich?s that in choosing John Edwards as his running mate, John Kerry didn't just acquire a potential vice president, but a message:

Alan Reynolds | July 08, 2004

In presidential election years, the basic rule is that politicians and journalists can say anything they want about the economy ... so long as it isn't true.

George Will | July 08, 2004

It has come to this: The crux of the political left's complaint about Americans is that they are insufficiently materialistic.

Michelle Malkin | July 07, 2004

The self-proclaimed Party of the Little People is rolling in cash, and Democrats are positively gloating.

Brent Bozell | July 07, 2004

Most of the discussion about religion and politics in America ignores the establishment clause of the First Amendment, which instructs that the state should recognize no particular faith as the church of the state.

Mike Adams | July 07, 2004

I am writing this letter in a state of frustration and disenchantment, but also, I believe, in a state of enlightenment.

Jonah Goldberg | July 07, 2004

Good for John Kerry. By picking John Edwards he has given the voters a real choice.

Tony Blankley | July 07, 2004

With four months to go before the presidential elections, no sensible person should make even an educated guess of the winner.

Cal Thomas | July 07, 2004

One of the things people hate most about politics is politicians who don't tell the truth and change their positions at the drop of an opinion poll.

Terry Jeffrey | July 07, 2004

In the heart of the heartland, in a hardworking Mississippi River town, in a state that Al Gore carried in 2000 by only 4,144 votes, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts gave the good people a lesson in biology and religion.

Ben Shapiro | July 07, 2004

Caesar Rodney, representative from Delaware, staggered, soaking wet and seriously ill, into the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776.

Linda Chavez | July 07, 2004

Like a kid sneaking a peak at his birthday presents and spoiling the fun of the party, John Kerry has managed to take all the surprise out of the Democratic convention.

Maggie Gallagher | July 07, 2004

Adult children of same-sex parents are rare. I recently came across Cassidy's story by accident, after she e-mailed a friend of mine who is a family scholar.

William F. Buckley | July 07, 2004

In the general political commotion centering on John Edwards, the Fourth of July and Fallujah, attention strays from matters Cuban, except when a cigar is being probed.

Kathleen Parker | July 07, 2004

The 'public's right to know' has received a thorough vetting the past couple of weeks with release of a U.S. Senate candidate's sealed divorce records.

Rich Lowry | July 07, 2004

The speculation has ended, and the selection has been made. It's an all JFK-wannabe Democratic ticket.

Thomas Sowell | July 06, 2004

The fans booed when 'The Star-Spangled Banner' was played and those few fans who raised American flags were pelted with debris, as were the American soccer players.

Star Parker | July 06, 2004

I must give credit to gay activists on one count. They have managed to get evangelical black pastors around the country to overcome their natural aversion to politics.

David Limbaugh | July 06, 2004

John Kerry may have "stepped in it" on the Fourth of July when he said more than he needed to say on the subject of abortion.

Cal Thomas | July 06, 2004

Observation and common sense have told me for years that there is no relationship between the amount of money spent on education and student achievement.

Dennis Prager | July 06, 2004

Did you ever notice that there are no Germans going around the world saying, or making movies about, how awful Germany is or has been?

Rich Tucker | July 06, 2004

A trip to England is an eye-opener, because even the most dedicated reader couldn?t finish all of London?s 10 daily papers. But why are so many people over there reading newspapers?

Armstrong Williams | July 06, 2004

The technological boom can be an engine of equality for black America. But first we need to address the barriers that continue to exist in the work place.

Joel Mowbray | July 06, 2004

State long ago hijacked control in Iraq, and the results show how that has turned out.

Mon, Jul 05, 2004

Michael Barone | July 05, 2004

Do the Democrats really want to join forces with Michael Moore? It sure looks like it.

Suzanne Fields | July 05, 2004

Horst Koehler, the newly installed president of Germany, is not a clone of Gerhard Schroeder. Herr Koehler wants Germans to be more like Americans, to be "optimistic" and "open-minded." He's talking jobs.

Debra J. Saunders | July 05, 2004

How is America supposed to win in Iraq, and how are the Iraqi people supposed to reclaim their country, when so many Washington leaders seem to be rooting for failure in Baghdad?

Diana West | July 05, 2004

Ever hear about the Battle of the Humvee? That's what I'm calling a May skirmish fought by soldiers of the 37th Armored Regiment's 2nd Battalion in the southern Iraqi city of Najaf.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 05, 2004

The hand-over of power to Iraq by the victorious American forces has stimulated public discussion about a word that seems to have fallen in disfavor in the last few years: sovereignty.

Jack Kemp | July 05, 2004

The economy is the strongest it's been in a very long time. Factories are busier, families are earning more, homeownership continues to rise and people are finding work.

Bruce Bartlett | July 05, 2004

Last week, the Federal Reserve raised its basic interest rate from one percent to 1.25 percent.

John Leo | July 05, 2004

Some Republicans are demanding that John Kerry open up the sealed records of his divorce from his first wife, Julia Thorne. This is a terrible idea.

Paul Jacob | July 04, 2004

What kind of government do we have? Upon leaving the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, in 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked whether Americans had a monarchy or republic. 'A republic,' responded the grand old revolutionary, 'if you can keep it.'
