Paul Jacob | August 15, 2004

New Jersey Governor James McGreevey surprised his state and the nation, announcing that "My truth is that I am a gay American." With this statement and his resignation, McGreevey certainly got attention ? but did he draw attention to the truth?

Bruce Bartlett | August 15, 2004

Cassandra was a creature from Greek mythology that was given the gift of prophecy, but cursed by never being believed, even though her predictions were always correct.

William F. Buckley | August 15, 2004

In the matter of the resignation of Governor McGreevey, the impulse is to say: Let it alone ? it is a private act. But that is the thoughtless, even cowardly way of disposing of the event, because it is tied in so many ways to public questions that need thought and exploration.

George Will | August 15, 2004

Zoellick, the most important government official most voters have never heard of, holds a job that is one of the underestimated stakes in this presidential election.

Doug Giles | August 14, 2004

What?s ironic -- and typical -- is the Left?s hysterically hypocritical spin machine screaming for the Swifties? 411 to be immediately Dixie Chicked.

Kathleen Parker | August 14, 2004

What if the single pivotal event of one's life - the moment that altered one's entire course, illuminating the path ahead, providing that critical psychological turning point - turned out to have been an invention of one's very own?

Robert Novak | August 14, 2004

The Republican majority in Congress has regretfully concluded that there is no alternative to calling the lawmakers back into session for what everybody had hoped to avoid: a lame-duck post-election session.

Jonah Goldberg | August 13, 2004

As John Kerry continues to talk tough on foreign policy, his promise to block the Yucca Mountain Project shows that he's running as a Truman Democrat on domestic policy, too.

David Limbaugh | August 13, 2004

Poor John Kerry. He has finally nuanced himself into foreign policy schizophrenia. It may not matter to the unconditional Bush-hater segment of his base, but it ultimately might matter to the less rabid and to swing voters.

Mona Charen | August 13, 2004

John F. Kerry is a dove in hawk's clothing. Yes, he volunteered in Vietnam -- and none can deny him the honor he deserves for having done his duty.

Neal Boortz | August 13, 2004

The mask is off. Further denials are useless. After the events of the past seven days the ingrained leftist, pro-Democratic Party bias of the nation?s mainstream media has been fully exposed.

Oliver North | August 13, 2004

When it comes to the war in Iraq, John Kerry has been steadfastly ambivalent. One day he's for it; the next day, he's not.

Ed Feulner | August 13, 2004

There are plenty of lessons we can learn from the 9/11 Commission report. But perhaps the most important is that serious threats don?t appear overnight -- they grow over time. And our ability to respond must change and grow as well.

Rich Tucker | August 13, 2004

The summer Olympics are back, in all their glory. And this year, they?re returning to their roots, in Greece.

Chuck Colson | August 13, 2004

Peter Singer holds himself out as an ethicist, but he doesn?t teach the kind of ethics I recognize.

Ross Mackenzie | August 13, 2004

With crude prices around $40 a barrel and gasoline prices nearly $2 at the pump, the usual know-it-alls are mounting the ramparts.

Charles Krauthammer | August 13, 2004

You wanted campaign finance reform. You got campaign finance reform. McCain-Feingold promised to take the money out of politics. If you believed that, you deserve what you got.

Joel Mowbray | August 13, 2004

Continuing his quest to be more all over the map than the Grateful Dead in the band's heyday, John Kerry has offered yet another new position on the Iraq war. He?s for it?for now.

Ann Coulter | August 12, 2004

Democrats haven't been this upset about an American engaging in free speech since Juanita Broaddrick opened her yap.

Thomas Sowell | August 12, 2004

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

Larry Elder | August 12, 2004

Tell me again. Which of the presidential candidates calls himself a 'uniter' and not a 'divider'?

Mike Adams | August 12, 2004

At least one organization was told in 2003 that they must allow students opposed to their orthodox religious beliefs to hold elective office. Another group was told that their constitution could not say that the group subscribes to a 'belief in God.'

Suzanne Fields | August 12, 2004

We live in a world where the second guesser aspires to be king. Everybody has brilliant 20-20 hindsight. It's worse in political campaigns.

John McCaslin | August 12, 2004

President Bush came face-to-face with the sacrifice and uncertainty surrounding the war in Iraq during an 'ask the president' event this week at Okaloosa-Walton College in Niceville, Fla.

Robert Novak | August 12, 2004

Hearing no battle cry, Republican loyalists are easily unnerved by even questionable statistics.

Marvin Olasky | August 12, 2004

This period between the major political party conventions is a good time to think through what's at stake in this year's presidential election. Leaders of voter registration drives on both sides speak of a 'pivotal election' -- is that hype or truth?

Ross Mackenzie | August 12, 2004

As Abu Ghraib fades in the news somewhat, the presidential contest heats up. But other topics worthy of comment abound. . . .

Rich Lowry | August 12, 2004

This spot in the eastern city of Jalalabad used to be where Soviet soldiers came for R & R, enjoying a movie theater and a pool.

Thomas Sowell | August 11, 2004

We don't need limousine liberals telling farmers how to farm, builders how to build, and everybody else how to live their lives. That power is too dangerous to let it trump knowledge.

Michelle Malkin | August 11, 2004

I recently spoke with a group of bright, young law students and undergrads from the best schools in the country, including Yale, Georgetown, the University of Chicago and William and Mary.

Walter E. Williams | August 11, 2004

Economic ignorance allows us to fall easy prey to political charlatans and demagogues, so how about a little Economics 101?

Brent Bozell | August 11, 2004

A search of the massive Nexis database shows no mention of Kerry's St. Christopher medallion in the last two years, and there's no sign of it in the whole Nexis sample of the Boston Globe.

Jonah Goldberg | August 11, 2004

American democracy is in sorry shape these days.

Tony Blankley | August 11, 2004

I stayed up late last night and read from cover to cover the book 'Unfit for Command -- Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry.'

Cal Thomas | August 11, 2004

The dispute about IRA arms is what caused the latest suspension of the legislative assembly, formed out of the 1998 "Good Friday agreement" and designed to devolve power from London to a Northern Ireland government and an executive committee of ministers.

Ben Shapiro | August 11, 2004

When Vladimir Lenin began his meteoric ascent to power, he was just a 30-year-old Marxist hoping to start a revolutionary newspaper called Iskra.

Terry Jeffrey | August 11, 2004

If John Kerry fulfills the campaign promise he made in last Saturday's Democratic radio address, he is truly a miracle worker. He pledged to undo what was never done.

Linda Chavez | August 11, 2004

The Gallup Organization poses it as a conundrum: Churchgoers are much more likely to support George W. Bush, while those who don't attend church regularly are more likely to favor John F. Kerry.

Rebecca Hagelin | August 11, 2004

Parents take note: The only thing that stands between your kids and those who seek to exploit them for the sake of the almighty dollar, is you.

Joel Mowbray | August 11, 2004

With all the attention focused on Alan Keyes crashing an election where he doesn?t belong, comparably little has been paid to a potentially far more troubling election participant: international monitors ?observing? our November elections.

Kathleen Parker | August 11, 2004

There's a vast middle where gray rules the day and where neither major-party candidate seems the right fit.

Michelle Malkin | August 10, 2004

The following is an exclusive excerpt from Michelle Malkin?s new book, In Defense of Internment: The Case for ?Racial Profiling? in World War II and the War on Terror (Regnery).

Mike Adams | August 10, 2004

Although the conversations varied, most of them ended up focusing on the politics of education. After all, that was what my book was about, not to mention 90% of my columns.

Star Parker | August 10, 2004

Democratic pollster Peter Hart commented the other day at a Washington seminar that liberal and conservative labels are not playing anymore to the nation's voters.

David Limbaugh | August 10, 2004

I can appreciate why people are turned off by dirty politics, by which I mean the unsubstantiated mudslinging against candidates designed to mislead and smear rather than inform.

Dennis Prager | August 10, 2004

No column I have written has elicited more hate mail than my last one on the 12-year-old girl who spoke at the Democratic National Convention and publicly ridiculed Vice President Dick Cheney.

Maggie Gallagher | August 10, 2004

For all the professional progress women have made, 'I am woman, hear me whine' could be the mantra of the postmodern educated woman when it comes to relationships, especially marriage.

Armstrong Williams | August 10, 2004

During a recent interview that I conducted for TV-One with Secretary of the State Colin Powell, the four-star general kept wandering back to the territory of shame and self-defeat.

Rich Lowry | August 10, 2004

Is George Bush against black children breathing? In the current political environment, no charge against President Bush is too poisonous or preposterous to make, including this one.

William F. Buckley | August 10, 2004

Six months ago I ventured in this space that the Democratic position on the war in Iraq was the single most critical question in U.S. politics.

John McCaslin | August 10, 2004

White House spokesman Scott McClellan, asked later about what equates to "reckless driving," said there was no special reason for such high speeds, surmising that the rush had been intended to minimize the motorcade's inconvenience to the local residents.

Bruce Bartlett | August 10, 2004

Europeans are frustrated. They have been behind the United States economically for years and thought this was due to lack of economic integration.

Larry Kudlow | August 10, 2004

You might think that George W. Bush will be the overwhelming choice of shareholders in his bid for re-election.

Michael Barone | August 09, 2004

There was little difference on trade between the major party candidates in the 1992 and 1996 elections, and not very much in 2000. But this time the nation has a pretty clear choice on trade.

Mike Adams | August 09, 2004

He described the horrific epidemic that has been ravishing the continent for years as follows: 'It is the greatest human rights tragedy of our time.'

Cal Thomas | August 09, 2004

Last week, Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry returned to September 11, 2001.

Suzanne Fields | August 09, 2004

War is hell. War is inspirational. It brings out the best in man, the worst in man.

Diana West | August 09, 2004

Whenever John Kerry rips the Bush administration for "going it alone" in Iraq -- which he does with near-digital regularity -- I cringe.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 09, 2004

The principal speakers at the Democratic National Convention conspicuously omitted one topic: the courts.

Rich Tucker | August 09, 2004

John Kerry had his chance to convince voters he?s ready for the Oval Office. His speech wowed the faithful in Boston, but played to mixed reviews elsewhere. Post-convention polls indicate Kerry got no bounce.

Robert Novak | August 09, 2004

I have read the book and found it is neither the political propaganda nor the urban legend that its detractors claim.

Jack Kemp | August 09, 2004

In the last few weeks, talk of President Bush's soon-to-be unveiled second term economic agenda has shifted, for the first time in a long time, to a discussion about fundamental tax reform.

William F. Buckley | August 09, 2004

The issue of gay marriage was all but ignored in Boston when the Democrats convened there a fortnight ago.

Sun, Aug 08, 2004

Thomas Sowell | August 08, 2004

While Senator John Kerry and his running-mate Senator John Edwards were recently being photographed at lunchtime at Wendy's, to show what regular guys they are, their real lunch was from a local yacht club, which is more their speed in real life.

Brent Bozell | August 08, 2004

Want a primer on societal meltdown? Then turn on the Top 40 pop station in any town, and sample the cultural depths to which too much of today's popular music has sunk.

Paul Jacob | August 08, 2004

Our first election without the First Amendment is, as Alice put it, 'getting curiouser and curiouser.'

George Will | August 08, 2004

Biden has no such delusions about the primacy of personality in international relations. Does Kerry?
