Pat Buchanan | September 19, 2004

What -- other than a blind bias against George Bush rooted in animus or ideology, or an obduracy bred of arrogance and hubris -- can explain Rather's near-suicidal behavior since his "60 Minutes" segment aired over a week ago.

Paul Jacob | September 19, 2004

A uniter, not a divider? Until genocidal aliens arrive from outer space, any program that unites will divide, too. Example? Term limits.

George Will | September 19, 2004

There always are people trying to carve crevices in constitutional terminology to allow scope for despotism. Such carving is occurring in Connecticut.

Doug Giles | September 18, 2004

Watching Dan Rather unravel this week over George Bush?s 'unpardonable sins' while serving in the National Guard has been reminiscent of Peter Arnett?s vocational suicide on TV while maniacally distorting the fall of Baghdad in March 2003.

Kathleen Parker | September 18, 2004

Given the preponderance of evidence at this point, one can only conclude that Dan Rather and CBS knowingly used documents that were not conclusively authentic to bolster a story intended to challenge the character and credibility of a president during an election year.

Robert Novak | September 18, 2004

Sen. John Edwards, departing from the usual pattern of vice presidential candidates appearing regularly on Sunday talk shows, has been turning down all such invitations.

Brent Bozell | September 17, 2004

Now NBC has unveiled "Father of the Pride," which looks like "Shrek" but sounds as sad and horny as last year's failed Whoopi Goldberg sitcom.

Jonah Goldberg | September 17, 2004

When people are in deep, deep - China Syndrome deep - denial about their predicament, you can get a really good sense of how they see the world.

Mike Adams | September 17, 2004

Author?s warning: Because the following editorial is based on actual events on American college campuses, some of its contents will be highly offensive to some readers. Nearly all of its contents will seem completely ridiculous to most normal readers.

David Limbaugh | September 17, 2004

What does it say about the Old Media that they are wholly uninterested in gravely serious and highly relevant charges against John Kerry yet investigate to death relatively minor and largely irrelevant claims against President Bush?

Mona Charen | September 17, 2004

This has been evident about John Kerry throughout his career, but never more than in relation to the Iraq war.

Oliver North | September 17, 2004

Candidate Kerry ought to know better, but he retains the same "blame America first" mentality.

Jacob Sullum | September 17, 2004

The implication is that no one knew smoking was dangerous until the tobacco companies admitted it.

Chuck Colson | September 17, 2004

The Vietnam War ended in 1975. Since then the Socialist Republic of Vietnam has become a trading partner. Find out how that fact can be used to protect Christians.

Charles Krauthammer | September 17, 2004

Having taken every possible position on the war, there is nothing he can now say that is even remotely credible.

Ann Coulter | September 16, 2004

Why do TV commentators on CBS' forgery-gate insist on issuing lengthy caveats to the effect that of course this was an innocent mistake and no one is accusing Dan Rather of some sort of "conspiracy,"

Thomas Sowell | September 16, 2004

Too many know-it-alls in the high schools and colleges urge or warn parents to get out of the picture and let the child decide where to go and what to do.

Larry Elder | September 16, 2004

But a funny thing happened on the way to the expose.

Suzanne Fields | September 16, 2004

Hundreds of children injured in the recent terrorist attack on a Russian schoolhouse suffered wounds so grievous that only specially trained surgeons could treat them.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 16, 2004

Still there seem to remain a few groups one can stereotype and slur with impunity -- for instance, religious fundamentalists, Roman Catholics and Italian-Americans.

Rich Lowry | September 16, 2004

Rather has yet to explain adequately his conduct. He can start by answering these questions:

Alan Reynolds | September 16, 2004

Don't you feel much safer now, with Martha Stewart about to go to prison? She decided to go to prison first, and then appeal later.

Chuck Colson | September 16, 2004

"When I was in politics," said Charles Colson, "I was accused of being Nixon?s 'dirty tricks expert'?but I never rose to the heights, or rather sank to the depths, of this year?s campaign."

Ross Mackenzie | September 16, 2004

Briefs from the Kerry campaign as it seemingly heads for the exits. . .

To the astonishment and dismay of Democratic politicians, John Kerry over the last weekend appeared to have forgotten his opponent for president.

Bruce Bartlett | September 16, 2004

It reminds me of the last gasp of the "scientists" who were certain that the sun revolved around the earth, rather than the other way around, before finally being forced to accept the truth.

Marvin Olasky | September 16, 2004

So let's forget Kelley's gossipy book and turn to Kerry's floundering campaign. Why is he doing so badly?

George Will | September 16, 2004

For four decades the Northeast, like the Senate almost forever, has not been fertile ground for producing presidents.

Michelle Malkin | September 15, 2004

If our liberty is used to ignore evil, we have betrayed the trust placed in us by the founding fathers.

Linda Chavez | September 15, 2004

What should happen to Dan Rather and CBS News if those National Guard records impugning George W. Bush's service, revealed on "60 Minutes II" last week, prove to be forgeries?

Kathleen Parker | September 15, 2004

The CBS mess variously known as 'Forgerygate' or 'Rathergate' is by any other name a seminal moment in the blogosphere that holds promise not only for revolutionizing journalism, but also perhaps for problem-solving on a global scale.

Larry Kudlow | September 15, 2004

As George W. Bush mounts a strong comeback in the polls, stock market averages are mounting their own stealth recovery.

Cal Thomas | September 13, 2004

Diana West | September 13, 2004

If there was something tragi-farcical about Steven Spielberg receiving a knighthood from Jacques Chirac last weekend for "Schindler's List," there was also something tragi-farcically apt.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 13, 2004

Paul Jacob | September 12, 2004

Politicians love the people, at least for these couple of months during election years. The rest of the time they merely put up with us, spend our money, and try to cope with our love for term limits.
