Michael Medved | December 12, 2004

Hollywood apologists comfort themselves with the thought that 49% of the electorate voted to dump President Bush. But it hardly sounds like a savvy business strategy to market your movies and TV shows exclusively to a minority -- however substantial -- of the general public. In this closely divided nation, it satisfies no practical purpose for the entertainment elite to be identified as so intensely political and utterly one-sided.

Paul Jacob | December 12, 2004

They dominate the news media, Hollywood and academia. They teach us, tell us the news, show us their documentaries, television programs and movies. And yet, they can't get us to vote for their guy, the Democrat.

George Will | December 12, 2004

A better analysis of the Democrats' difficulties comes from Peter Beinart, writing in The New Republic, which he edits.

I hate to get your panties in a wad, you pomosexual gender-line-blurrers , you, but the vast, vast majority of American men want to be more like William Wallace and less like Will and Grace.

Caroline Glick | December 11, 2004

Few in Israel, or in the US for that matter, are particularly interested in analyzing what is happening with the Palestinians or the Egyptians today.

Kathleen Parker | December 11, 2004

Thomas Sowell | December 10, 2004

Two apparently unrelated stories that appeared in newspapers on the same day are in reality not nearly as unrelated as they might seem.

Brent Bozell | December 10, 2004

Oliver Stone has been out of the limelight for a long time, having gone five years between major theatrical releases since the 1999 football film "Any Given Sunday."

David Limbaugh | December 10, 2004

Isn't it ironic that liberals seem to resent conservatives for promoting moral issues and being judgmental when every ounce of their leftist fiber bristles with an air of moral superiority?

Mona Charen | December 10, 2004

Mary Frances Berry, chairman of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, is resigning. Those scratch marks on the floor may be from her fingernails as they dragged her from the building by her feet.

Oliver North | December 10, 2004

In wine, the experts say, vintage is everything. If that's the case, 2004 has turned out to be a very bad year for the United Nations.

Larry Kudlow | December 10, 2004

Isn?t America really about second chances? Or maybe even more chances than that? Critics of Martha Stewart?s possible comeback don?t seem to see things that way, but I think they should.

Charles Krauthammer | December 10, 2004

Before our astonishing success in Afghanistan goes completely down the memory hole, let's recall some very recent history.

Ann Coulter | December 09, 2004

Only the Democrats would try to distract from their racist attacks on one black Republican by leveling racist attacks against a different black Republican.

Larry Elder | December 09, 2004

Democratic pundits still scratch their heads as they try and figure out what the recent presidential election tells them.

Suzanne Fields | December 09, 2004

Washington is ablaze with lights, and thousands of them twinkle on the Ellipse, an oval plot designed by Pierre L'Enfant 200 years ago as the back yard of the White House.

Emmett Tyrrell | December 09, 2004

Do you know who Harry M. Reid might be? Frankly, I did not know either, until he was quoted in the newspapers.

Joel Mowbray | December 09, 2004

Although the Iraqi elections on January 30 will top her incoming agenda, the first real indicator of Condi Rice?s tenure as Secretary of State will be how she handles something most in her new department would rather ignore:

John McCaslin | December 09, 2004

Earlier this week, we drew your attention to a newspaper ad placed in The New York Times - showing the Statue of Liberty, with the tag line, 'Very Inspiring. Now, where's the mall?'

Robert Novak | December 09, 2004

So, what do you think about recent events in the news?

The most painful episode ever reported in this column -- for me and for many readers -- was the killing of little eight-month-old Angelo Marinda by his own father, two years ago.

Michelle Malkin | December 08, 2004

Fugitive U.S. soldier Jeremy Hinzman is an unrepentant embarrassment to his country of birth.

Walter E. Williams | December 08, 2004

College costs have risen dramatically over the last several decades. In many cases, it's difficult to find a college where per-student costs are under $20,000 each year.

Brent Bozell | December 08, 2004

It's not surprising for the liberal media to respond to the election returns by rededicating their column inches and airtime to the liberal agenda, which is to say, the usual way of doing business.

Jonah Goldberg | December 08, 2004

Maybe you haven't noticed, but the mainstream media are suffering from the perception that they're just the teeniest bit arrogant.

Tony Blankley | December 08, 2004

So it is to be a czar of all the intelligence services. As I predicted in last week's column, all the president's men have engulfed the remaining opposition to the intelligence reform bill and (as I write on Tuesday) the House of Representatives will imminently pass the bill with strong bipartisan support.

Cal Thomas | December 08, 2004

Thomas Sowell | December 07, 2004

Who sits on the Supreme Court for life may be more important than who sits in the White House for four years.

Mike Adams | December 07, 2004

Thomas Sowell | December 06, 2004

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

Brent Bozell | December 06, 2004

The anything-goes gang is suggesting we live in a pretty hypocritical country if we can profess our desire for moral leadership and make our No. 1 smash on television the ABC smut soap 'Desperate Housewives.'

Michael Barone | December 06, 2004

Just a month after the election, the tide of opinion has turned. Consumer confidence is up. The stock market is up.

In his Halifax, Nova Scotia, speech last week, President Bush returned to his 'reformer with results' 2000 campaign theme.

Republicans and the Bush administration are bleeding badly on Social Security from scores of self-inflicted wounds by some members of Congress, as well as low-level staffers and political appointees who can't see beyond their green eyeshades.

Joel Mowbray | December 06, 2004

No matter how much conventional media wisdom says otherwise, Powell?s presentation on the eve of the Iraq War remains as true today as it was then, which is to say almost entirely so.

Robert Novak | December 06, 2004

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina startled the capital's conservative network last month with a speech on Social Security reform at the Heritage Foundation.

The end is near. Well, the end of the year is near. So just published this year's list of Top Ten Most Embarrassing Moments. Obviously, too much of what activists and worrywarts and even scientists publicly claim as science isn't science.
