Paul Jacob | October 17, 2004

There's something rotten in Denmark. And I catch a whiff of something similarly unpleasant here in a America, too.

Thomas Sowell | October 16, 2004

Attempts to talk about costs, trade-offs or diminishing returns are only likely to provoke safety zealots to respond with something like, 'If it saves just one human life, it is worth it!'

Doug Giles | October 16, 2004

As a proud gun owner and hunter of everything from Texas whitetails to South African wildebeests, to me, Kerry?s anti-gun voting history and his anti-hunting backers are more scary than the 256-pound charging wild boar I shot at a mere ten feet.

Robert Novak | October 16, 2004

Pennsylvania and Ohio in 2004 could assume the role played by Florida in 2000, facing ballot counting difficulties that might delay the national outcome well beyond the Nov. 2 election.

Thomas Sowell | October 15, 2004

Some people think of California as a place where many kooky ideas originate. It is that but there is more to it than that.

Brent Bozell | October 15, 2004

It is slowly dawning on Hollywood -- and its affiliated TV stations across the fruited plain -- that there's a new sheriff policing the tube in the town of Washington.

Mike Adams | October 15, 2004

Hello Clifton. It is nice to hear from you. I just received your email, which follows in its entirety:

David Limbaugh | October 15, 2004

I think the presidential election will ultimately turn on which of the candidates the public trusts more, particularly because we are at war.

Mona Charen | October 15, 2004

Was Kerry trying to damage the Bush-Cheney ticket by calling attention to something many conservative Republicans probably did not know about the vice president's daughter?

Oliver North | October 15, 2004

The next phase of the war against radical Islamic jihadists was launched by approximately 8 million Afghanis who went to the polls.

Rebecca Hagelin | October 15, 2004

Teaching kids values such as courage, and integrity, and how to rise above a sex-crazed culture that threatens their futures doesn?t just come from having serious chats.

Jacob Sullum | October 15, 2004

'If you don't know what you're talking about,' South Park co-creator Matt Stone recently told Rolling Stone, 'there's no shame in not voting.'

Charles Krauthammer | October 15, 2004

After the second presidential debate, in which John Kerry used the word 'plan' 24 times, I said on television that Kerry has a plan for everything except curing psoriasis.

Joel Mowbray | October 15, 2004

Spinning facts and figures is as old as politics itself, but Wednesday night, Sen. John Kerry marshaled a mountain of distortions to create his own America?one that exists only as a figment of his imagination.

Chuck Colson | October 15, 2004

Women?s health advocates go to great lengths to fund research that can help women -- that is, until the research calls abortion into question.

Rich Lowry | October 15, 2004

John Kerry won't fight for his own beliefs -- by his own admission.

George Will | October 15, 2004

Wednesday's debate finally focused attention on domestic policy, including such supposedly secondary matters as courts and the Constitution, education and taxation -- the government's claim on the individual's labor.

Thu, Oct 14, 2004

Ann Coulter | October 14, 2004

During the second presidential debate, John Kerry said: "I ask each of you just to look into your hearts, look into your guts. Gut-check time. Was this really going to war as a last resort?"

Thomas Sowell | October 14, 2004

At long last there is some reconsideration of the child molestation hysteria that has sent innocent people to jail for long terms behind bars.

Larry Elder | October 14, 2004

The War on Terror involves more than military or intelligence, it involves winning the ideological struggle. Not there, but here.

Mike Adams | October 14, 2004

It sounds like one of those Jeff Foxworthy jokes, doesn?t it? 'If directions to your house include what to do after you turn off the dirt road, you might be a redneck.'

Cal Thomas | October 14, 2004

There is much to lose concerning success in the war against those who hate and wish to kill us; the size, reach and cost of government; and the way we look at issues - from law to life.

Suzanne Fields | October 14, 2004

Western women can be such spoiled brats. The photographs of Afghan women bravely peering through their burqas to vote make up a picture of the female of the species at its best.

Debra J. Saunders | October 14, 2004

It turns out that the anti-war crowd was right that national leaders' decisions on what to do about Iraq were based on oil and greed -- they were just wrong about which countries' leaders.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 14, 2004

Where else but in an American presidential campaign can a candidate declare with solemnity that 'labels don't matter' or, for that matter, with persuasiveness.

Rich Tucker | October 14, 2004

Okay, undecided voters. It?s time to put up or shut up.

Ross Mackenzie | October 14, 2004

Oct. 11 editions of Military Times publications (Navy Times, Army Times, Marine Corps Times, Air Force Times) carried an astounding story not likely to get much coverage in the establishment press.

Alan Reynolds | October 14, 2004

Each new Kerry-Edwards campaign ad proves once again that these candidates are habitually incompetent and/or dishonest in their use of economic facts. And this, too, is a matter of trust.

John McCaslin | October 14, 2004

Then, three innings later, I waved goodbye to a team that, as a youngster growing up during a troubled time in this city, I'd come to rely on.

George Will | October 14, 2004

Billboards now seen in at least 10 key states show a prancing French poodle, its fur fancily clipped for show, wearing a pink ribbon and a blue Kerry-for-president sweater.

Marvin Olasky | October 14, 2004

One of Tony Blair's applause lines, as he moved a decade ago toward becoming Britain's youngest prime minister in almost two centuries, was, 'I am my brother's keeper, I will not walk by on the other side.'

Robert Novak | October 14, 2004

Democrats appear to be as frustrated by being out of power in the House the past 10 years as the Republicans were four times that long in the wilderness.

Michelle Malkin | October 13, 2004

How many hate crime anecdotes does it take before the mainstream media spot a trend? If the victims are politically correct, all it takes is one or two.

Walter E. Williams | October 13, 2004

I'm wondering just when parents, especially poor minorities, will refuse to tolerate day-to-day school conditions that most parents wouldn't dream of tolerating.

Brent Bozell | October 13, 2004

Speaking to a media conference thrown by the financial giant Goldman Sachs last week, CBS boss Les Moonves gave his view from the mountaintop about the Dan Rather forgery scandal and how the network's independent investigation would proceed.

Mike Adams | October 13, 2004

Dear Professor Snider: Someone recently sent me a copy of the guidelines for a research paper that you require of your students at California State University, Long Beach.

Jonah Goldberg | October 13, 2004

I have discovered the solution to liberal media bias. What mainstream journalism needs are more stupid people.

Tony Blankley | October 13, 2004

Whether or not he intended it, John Kerry's much commented upon statement -- that terrorism should be reduced to a nuisance like prostitution or gambling -- has engaged the central issue of this presidential campaign.

Cal Thomas | October 13, 2004

Ted Kennedy and I have something in common. We are both on airline lists as potential terror suspects.

Ben Shapiro | October 13, 2004

I believe! I used to walk in darkness, until one day a savior was born in the west wing of a military hospital in Colorado.

Terry Jeffrey | October 13, 2004

Sarah Degenhart's question was simple, straightforward and had absolutely nothing to do with Sen. John Kerry's long-ago service as an altar boy.

Linda Chavez | October 13, 2004

In the most amusing anecdote in the long piece, Bai describes Kerry's wariness over a simple choice of what kind of water to drink:

Armstrong Williams | October 13, 2004

It's frightening when you think about how style has come to trump substance in our political debates.

John McCaslin | October 13, 2004

Jon Moseley, author of 'Cold Peace,' makes a good point after listening to Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry pledge that he would secure Russia's nuclear material three times faster than President Bush.

Kathleen Parker | October 13, 2004

The mystery of Pfc. Paul Flagg is solved. Thirty-seven years later, the Marine I wrote in Vietnam and then lost has materialized. He is alive and well in Sumter, S.C.

Tue, Oct 12, 2004

Thomas Sowell | October 12, 2004

It is hard to know whether media bias is getting worse or whether the mainstream media are just getting caught more often because of alternative sources of news like Fox News, talk radio and a growing number of Internet sites.

Star Parker | October 12, 2004

Recent polling by the Pew Research Center shows a notable change in black sentiment for the presidential candidates.

David Limbaugh | October 12, 2004

While it is always tempting to write about John Kerry's multiple personality disorder on Iraq, I will address instead his statements in the second debate on the role of the judiciary and abortion.

Dennis Prager | October 12, 2004

The most frequently offered argument of Sen. John Kerry and other anti-war Democrats to support their charge that the invasion of Iraq was a mistake is that Iraq has become a den of terrorists.

Debra J. Saunders | October 12, 2004

Hey, I thought George W. Bush won debate No. 1, not on style but with his arguments.

Matt Towery | October 12, 2004

Then came ABC's instant post-debate survey. The poll was released before the network's TV coverage of the debate even ended. It showed Kerry having won by three percentage points.

Joel Mowbray | October 12, 2004

Though he again looked largely polished and smooth, John Kerry showed unusual temerity in taking multiple positions on each issue during the same debate?making him look more like a panderer than a president.

Bruce Bartlett | October 12, 2004

What you won't find on the Kerry Web site are any references to serious studies of outsourcing.

Mon, Oct 11, 2004

Michael Barone | October 11, 2004

Some elections are about persuasion. This one is about turnout. In past presidential debates, candidates have tried to change people's minds and win over undecideds.

Brent Bozell | October 11, 2004

Watch out, astronauts and cosmonauts. Watch out, UFOs. Howard Stern's sleazy radio show is headed into outer space.

Cal Thomas | October 11, 2004

Try listening on the radio to the final presidential debate for a different perspective. Then read the transcript.

Suzanne Fields | October 11, 2004

Like most Europeans, the Germans have a love-hate relationship with America, psychologically deep and politically shallow.

Diana West | October 11, 2004

Gullible? That's a nice word for it. But not sanguine. Something keeps the Left up at night, but not visions of a biochemical attack at the World Series.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 11, 2004

The American Dream is to start a small business and develop it through years of hard work and investment.

John Leo | October 11, 2004

merica's mainline protestant churches are in trouble. One sign is shrinking membership. Another is turning their political policymaking over to fringe leftists whose deepest instinct is to blame America and pummel Israel whenever possible.

Jack Kemp | October 11, 2004

What a thrill is was to see women voting in Afghanistan for the first time over this past weekend.

Rich Lowry | October 11, 2004

Listening to John Kerry in the debates, one could be forgiven for thinking that his running mate is Ronald Reagan.

Robert Novak | October 11, 2004

John Kerry seeks the undecided and persuadable voters by campaigning as an ideologically moderate, fiscally conservative champion of the middle class. George W. Bush made that harder in the second debate.

Larry Kudlow | October 11, 2004

U.S. job creation continued to move ahead at a steady pace with the announcement Friday that 96,000 non-farm payrolls were added to the economy.

Sun, Oct 10, 2004

Paul Jacob | October 10, 2004

No matter who wins the presidency, we've already lost the Congress.

George Will | October 10, 2004

Conservatism's 40-year climb to dominance receives an examination worthy of its complexity in ``The Right Nation,'' the best political book in years.
