George Will | August 08, 2004

Thomas Sowell | August 06, 2004

A recent angry e-mail from a reader said that certain issues should not be determined by 'the dictates of the market.' With a mere turn of a phrase, he had turned reality upside down.

Mona Charen | August 06, 2004

Charles Krauthammer | August 06, 2004

No bounce for Kerry. The Democrats and their pollsters will tell you this is because the electorate has already made up its mind. But if that is the case, why are they campaigning?

Ann Coulter | August 05, 2004

Even I, someone who has not exactly had her eyes closed to Clinton-era buffoonery, did not imagine that the most corrupt administration in the history of the country would find a way to keep having scandals while out of office.

Thomas Sowell | August 05, 2004

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) would like equal space to address the absurd comments in Mike S. Adams' article, 'PETA Principles.'

Suzanne Fields | August 05, 2004

Emmett Tyrrell | August 05, 2004

My spies, who are everywhere, tell me that ?no one knows more about the history of boxing than Mike Tyson.? Is that really true?

Larry Kudlow | August 05, 2004

I'm not fond of political pandering by either Party, yet was force-fed a ton of it during the Democratic convention.

George Will | August 05, 2004

Mr. Kerry, in your convention speech you threw caution to the wind and endorsed what you called 'one of the oldest Commandments: 'Honor thy father and thy mother.'' Oldest? Were they not all published together?

If there is one general characteristic of white liberals, it's their condescending and demeaning attitude toward blacks.

Jonah Goldberg | August 04, 2004

It was hardly shocking that Al Sharpton was permitted to speak at the Democratic Convention. But a scandal needn't be a surprise to still be a scandal.

Shortly after Mitchell?s actions, the college?s Title IX officer Maryanne Horowitz decided that one of Antebi?s broadcasts constituted sexual harassment against his entire audience.

Tony Blankley | August 04, 2004

On Friday, July 23, Sen. John Kerry took the first significant substantive act of what would be a Kerry presidency: It was a cynical, possibly dangerous, political stunt.

Rich Lowry | August 04, 2004

In dropping the "un-American" bomb she highlighted an important truth about today's politics: It is the Democrats who routinely question the GOP's patriotism, not the other way around.

Cal Thomas | August 03, 2004

Matt Towery | August 03, 2004

I am continually amazed by the number of knowledgeable conservatives who underestimate Sen. Hillary Clinton's popularity.

Maggie Gallagher | August 03, 2004

For John Kerry, this religion thing is a problem. On the one hand, he wants to appeal to Dem elites who tend to be (let's face it) more secular than not.

Joel Mowbray | August 03, 2004

For very good reason, the rule of thumb is that a presidential candidate gains ground following his party?s convention: It almost always happens. But it didn?t happen for John Kerry.

Michael Barone | August 02, 2004

The Democratic delegates, almost all selected by the Kerry campaign, came to Boston joined not by love of John Kerry but by hate for George W. Bush -- and all they believe he stands for.

Cal Thomas | August 02, 2004

Like Nixon, Kerry says he can't reveal his plan because he doesn't want to '(negotiate) it publicly.'

Suzanne Fields | August 02, 2004

Fear and loathing of President Bush was the dish of the day, served piping hot with a side of contempt to the Democrats assembled in Boston's Fleet Center.

Kansas passed a law allowing illegal immigrants to attend state universities at discount tuition rates. Consequently, some out-of-state U.S. citizens who have to pay higher tuition just filed a lawsuit.

Rich Tucker | August 02, 2004

Mike Adams | August 01, 2004

We just think back to the promises we kept; the promise never to grow old and the promise never to stop laughing. And, above all, never to let old friendships die.

Debra J. Saunders | August 01, 2004

t the Democratic National Convention, the gulf between rhetoric and reality is breathtaking.

I'd like to think that my morality is strong enough that, were I to be made a prison guard, I would resist the brutality that prison guards in America and Abu Ghraib and elsewhere too readily practice, with gusto.

George Will | August 01, 2004

The Democrats in Boston did much to justify two much-disparaged things -- party conventions and platforms.
