As the discussion moves from an anonymous Mormon candidate to the actual Mitt Romney, and from abstract speculation to actual primaries and caucuses, polling will become more meaningful. Those opposed to a generic Mormon candidate may reveal that their opposition is prompted much more by political ideology than by sectarian concerns about religion.

Brent Bozell | July 07, 2006

Now in its seventh year, the American version is just starting up again with an "all-star" edition, if you can call these Warholian characters "stars."

Paul Greenberg | July 07, 2006

Hamas became the Palestinians' ruling party after winning the last parliamentary elections. It never dropped its call for the destruction of Israel, but it did announce a truce - for a while. Then it declared that truce void, and backed up its declaration with deeds.

Charles Krauthammer | July 07, 2006

The court's wanton overriding of Congress and the president is another in a long string of breathtaking acts of judicial arrogance.

"Current policy, in effect, mandates that we send these innovative minds home, or to other countries which welcome their skills, to compete against us," says Rep. John Shadegg, Arizona Republican.

William Rusher | July 06, 2006

Since then, the United States has been trying grimly to bring about this hoped-for result. But the fanatical Islamist insurgency, traceable to Osama bin Laden and led in Iraq, until recently, by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, has made the going far rougher than Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld can ever possibly have anticipated.

Thomas Sowell | July 06, 2006

Should blacks vote for Democrats or Republicans? Since blacks are not all the same, any more than whites are, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Yet the black vote is more overwhelmingly tied to the Democrats than that of any other group.

Brent Bozell | July 06, 2006

There's something bizarre about the Times rushing out to protest excessive secrecy in the Bush administration -- and then touting the testimony of secret sources as its evidence.

Larry Elder | July 06, 2006

Forty-seven percent of Americans, according to a recent poll, believe the economy is doing "badly." Or, as a woman I encountered at a party recently put it, "Bush put the economy in the toilet." Really?

Cal Thomas | July 06, 2006

A poll found that while anti-Semitism and anti-Catholicism are fading among voters, anti-Mormonism is not

Suzanne Fields | July 06, 2006

Someone asked Meryl Streep whether her new movie, "The Devil Wears Prada," is a feminist film. A look of horror spread across her face. "Well, there's a way to kill the box office." Better to lure male moviegoers with a profusion of beautifully draped bodies of the sensuous female of the species.

Terry Jeffrey | July 06, 2006

His parents assumed legal guardianship from his wife, made sure he was cared for at a rehabilitation center and brought him home for regular visits.

William F. Buckley | July 05, 2006

I was thinking, gee whiz, maybe I am one of the reasons Sen. Joe Lieberman is having such a tough time running for re-election in Connecticut. Here's the story:

Herman Cain | July 05, 2006

What’s next? Will the Senate Finance Committee require pimps to pay for their employees’ health care?

Now that Felipe Calderón seems to have won and the threat that was embodied by Chavista Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been defeated, it is time for the Republicans in the House to look beyond their own noses and deal generously with our neighbor to the south.

Michelle Malkin | July 05, 2006

Paul Weyrich | July 05, 2006

Some political observers may see the presence of religious conservatives in the Republican Party as a threat. My former friend Kevin Phillips, who in the early days of the New Right was so helpful, now acts as if a theocracy governs the nation.

John Stossel | July 05, 2006

When he was in college, atmospheric-science professor John Christy was told, "it was a certainty that by the year 2000, the world would be starving and out of energy."

Dennis Prager | July 04, 2006

Let us make war on the phrase "violence doesn't solve anything." It is a lie, and anyone who utters it cannot be taken morally seriously.

Pat Buchanan | July 04, 2006

It was because America remained independent of the alliances of Europe -- the Triple Entente of Britain, France and Russia, and Triple Alliance of Germany, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Italy -- that Americans did not arrive on the battlefields of the Great War of 1914-1918 until six months before the Armistice.

I don’t know how it is with other writers, but I find that every so often I have more ideas than I know what to do with.

Bruce Bartlett | July 04, 2006

The New York Times has no reservoir of goodwill to fall back on. Because of its past actions, people are disinclined to give it the benefit of the doubt when its judgment and patriotism are questioned.

Michael Medved | July 04, 2006

Today’s militant leftists not only spread lies about America’s present but generate even more damaging distortions about the nation’s past.

Michael Barone | July 03, 2006

Is it possible that the House and Senate will agree on an immigration bill? For most of June, the answer seemed to be no.

Suzanne Fields | July 03, 2006

In a season when it's the fashion to deconstruct the Founding Fathers, to consider their flaws and not their profundity, it's only charity to pass along illuminating stories that testify to the ways they did what they did to make it possible to change the things that from time to time ought to be changed.

Diana West | July 03, 2006

But from Spielberg's ersatz vision of the past emerges a disturbing clarity about the present. In divorcing the climactic events of D-Day from their grand goals and significant accomplishments, Spielberg staged a fictional war story without a historical point -- seemingly without any conception of military victory.

Donald Lambro | July 03, 2006

The latest Supreme Court rulings on the death penalty, campaign financing and congressional redistricting were not only victories for good government, but for President Bush's fight to turn the judiciary in a rightward direction.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 03, 2006

The Washington establishment is shocked at the discovery that Americans don't like the idea of the federal government forcing local governments to provide foreign-language ballots. That's one more indication of how out of touch our leaders are with grass-roots America.

Paul Weyrich | July 03, 2006

In a period of time when the Democrats appeared as if they had a lock on Congress, the late Robert B. Carleson approached me: Would I agree to hire him as a Free Congress Foundation Adjunct Scholar to work on welfare reform if Richard M. Scaife would fund it.

Robert Novak | July 03, 2006

On June 19, two young members of Congress received an extraordinary letter from Jerusalem.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | July 03, 2006

Inflation has spooked Wall Street. Fearful of inflation, the stock market has lost its traction and is behaving like a kid careening down a slip and slide. These inflation worries have prompted plenty of 60-somethings to wonder if a box of Raisin Bran will someday cost them $49.99.

Bernie Sanders may run as an "Independent," but his ideology strikes its indendepence chiefly by distancing itself from the accumulated wisdom of the last 50 years. Or 500.

James J. Kilpatrick | July 02, 2006

The Court of Peeves, Crotchets & Irks resumes its summer assizes with a motion from Mrs. Hattie B. Polk of Waynesboro, N.C. She asks the court to settle an argument over "more importantly" and "most importantly."

George Will | July 02, 2006

By leaving open the possibility that there is a constitutional answer to the question of what constitutes a ``too political'' gerrymander -- the position seems to be: we don't know what the standard is, but we don't know that it doesn't exist -- the court has again practiced ``split-the-difference jurisprudence.''

Caroline Glick | July 02, 2006

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced that in addition to Judea and Samaria, he plans to transfer a number of neighborhoods in Jerusalem to Hamas.
