Mona Charen | April 15, 2005

A 2003 survey by Bankrate.com asked Americans whether they ever cheated on their taxes. Eighty-seven percent said, rather huffily, certainly not! But 13 percent said (I paraphrase), whadya mean cheat?

Oliver North | April 15, 2005

Sometimes, as I tell my grandchildren, older is better. In the case of the two battlewagons, older is not only superior, it's also a lot less expensive.

Rich Tucker | April 15, 2005

At times, 'Does Europe Hate Us? Thomas L. Friedman Reporting' is fall-on-the-floor funny. And that?s frightening.

Rebecca Hagelin | April 15, 2005

Seemingly untouched by our culture, this truly is an island paradise. On this trip, I have brought my three children and three of their friends. Because the only access to the beach is by boat, I feel we're safe here-safe from a culture that's gone stark raving mad.

Kathleen Parker | April 15, 2005

Larry Elder | April 14, 2005

In any first draft of history, the president of the United States and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall wouldn't have much in common. But events demand a good rewrite man.

Debra J. Saunders | April 14, 2005

The last time I had been in the California governor's inner office for a one-on-one interview, I was meeting with Gov. Gray Davis, who was in deep denial about the impending recall election.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 14, 2005

My guess is that DeLay is going to survive easily. He has done no wrong, though he might in the future be more scrupulous in availing himself to the hospitality of Washington wheeler-dealers.

Why did Monday's Democratic assault on John Bolton at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee have so little to do with how he would perform as U.S. ambassador at the United Nations and so much about Cuban biological warfare?

Ross Mackenzie | April 14, 2005

Doing things they say you can't is one of this life's most delicious aspects.

Larry Kudlow | April 14, 2005

When the unexpectedly wide February trade-gap report came out this week, it wasn?t the dollar that got hit -- the dollar is regulated by the Fed?s money-supply policies.

Michelle Malkin | April 13, 2005

Last time I checked, activist federal judges weren't riding into towns on horseback, whoopin' and a-hollerin', burning crosses on lawns and lynching folks for no good reason.

Tony Blankley | April 13, 2005

I understand why the Democrats are going after Tom DeLay. Snakes gotta slither, mosquitoes gotta bite, hyenas gotta laugh, and Democrats without a blooming idea in their heads gotta go negative.

Cal Thomas | April 13, 2005

Why do we celebrate celebrities who behave no differently from Charles and Camilla?

Terry Jeffrey | April 13, 2005

John McCaslin | April 13, 2005

What better spot for West Virginian Hiram Lewis IV, an Iraq war veteran and judge advocate general (JAG) officer, to announce his candidacy against Democratic Sen. Robert C. Byrd than from the base of the Robert C. Byrd statue in the state's Capitol rotunda?

Stories on Larry Franklin, dual loyalties, and espionage for Israel look more far-fetched with each passing day.

Rich Lowry | April 12, 2005

Dr. Tom Coburn, late of the House of Representatives, citizen of Oklahoma, now senator from his state, casts every appearance of propriety. So of course he has "ethics" troubles.

George Will | April 10, 2005
