Horace Cooper | September 22, 2007

President Bush’s announcement of the name of the person who would replace Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was eagerly anticipated by many in Washington. Gonzales, caricatured as inept and bumbling by critics of the President, had decided in August that he wouldn’t continue in his designated role as Washington’s whipping boy du jour.

Caroline Glick | September 22, 2007

According to the commander of IDF Military Intelligence, Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin, Israel's raid in Syria on September 6 against what was reportedly a North Korean-supplied nuclear installation in eastern Syria restored Israel's deterrent posture which was so weakened in last summer's war in Lebanon.

Paul Driessen | September 22, 2007

Environmentalists and the foundations that support them have much to atone for.

Doug Giles | September 22, 2007

FYI young dudes and dudettes: no matter what they tell you on the various TV commercials, these diverse and multitudinous sex plagues aren’t just a “little inconvenient” like a runny nose, halitosis or dandruff. They are devastating.

Patrick Ruffini | September 22, 2007

Last week, a SurveyUSA/WBZ poll out of Boston caused a minor earthquake in the Massachusetts political universe. The race to replace liberal Congressman Marty Meehan was supposed to be a sleepy affair leading to a walk-in-the-park victory for Democrat Niki Tsongas, the well-known wife of the late Senator Paul Tsongas.

Brent Bozell | September 22, 2007

Rutgers University is known as the birthplace of college football, but in the last few weeks it's seemed more like the deathplace of sportsmanship.

Robert Novak | September 22, 2007

Giuliani caught the spirit of Republican rage over the left-wing's full-page ad in The New York Times.

Jonah Goldberg | September 21, 2007

Rather used to compare his job to "a very high trapeze act, frequently with no net." Three years ago, he went splat in the bull's-eye of the center ring. Now, with the circus long since out of town, he all of a sudden wants a net rolled out.

Richard H. Collins | September 21, 2007

After nearly single handedly bringing about the failure of her husband’s health care package, the former first lady careful crafted her latest proposal to appear different in style and substance from her earlier attempt.

Rich Tucker | September 21, 2007

All we need to do is read the papers or watch the news to realize that we live in troubled economic times. It may even be time for desperate measures.

Amanda Carpenter | September 21, 2007

Rudy Giuliani said Sept. 11 changed his perspective on gun rights, but was unapologetic for the gun laws he imposed as New York City mayor at the National Rifle Association’s “American Values” summit Friday.

James Bopp, Jr. | September 21, 2007

Fred Thompson, running for President as the "plain-speaking consistent conservative," was asked about campaign finance reform by Laura Ingraham on her radio show the day after his Presidential announcement.

Burt Prelutsky | September 21, 2007

Back in the 1950s, a southern journalist named Harry Golden became famous by turning out a series of best-selling books, the first of which he called “Only in America.” The title was a reference to a popular expression that reflected the feeling of most of his countrymen that America was special, a unique place that offered millions of people unlimited freedom to express themselves and to achieve dreams that were unimaginable anywhere else on earth.

John McCaslin | September 21, 2007

Feeling down in the dumps? Start trashing Rudolph W. Giuliani or Hillary Rodham Clinton, and you'll be feeling better soon. "The strange fact of the matter is that the hard-core liberals and conservatives in America are actually some of our happiest citizens," says Arthur C. Brooks, visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. "As much as you might prefer not to believe it, the politics of happiness is actually the politics of intolerance, nasty sloganeering and the screaming pundits on cable television."

Michael Gerson | September 21, 2007

Last year, Stephen Walt of Harvard and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago published a paper accusing the "Israel Lobby" of having "unmatched power" and managing to "manipulate the American political system" into actions that undermine U.S. interests.

Ken Blackwell | September 21, 2007

Hillary Clinton has done the last thing I expected, and she’ll regret it in the end.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 21, 2007

The public face of Hillary Clinton's new health care plan is sunny, filled with choices for consumers and bright with promises for better health care for all. But a close examination of the proposal alongside other initiatives of Sen. Clinton in the past few years reveals a dark side she wants to hide from public view until after the election is over.

Diana West | September 21, 2007

I love Ernest Hemingway. That's a switch for this column, but not for me. Ever since sophomore year in college, I've hung his picture near my desk.

John Hawkins | September 21, 2007

Liberals love to think of themselves as intellectual and nuanced, but liberalism is incredibly simplistic. It's nothing more than "childlike emotionalism applied to adult issues."

Jonah Goldberg | September 21, 2007

In 2004, at the height of the Dan Rather Memogate story, I wrote in National Review: "Across the media universe the questions pour out: Why is Dan Rather doing this to himself? Why does he drag this out? Why won't he just come clean? Why would he let this happen in the first place? Why is CBS standing by him? Why ... why ... why?

Mona Charen | September 21, 2007

President Bush has endured the usual amount of abuse from liberals and leftist extremists.

Cal Thomas | September 21, 2007

In her latest plan to transform the American health care system, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton invokes a word she usually reserves for abortion: choice. It sounds good, but like all things Clinton, you have to look behind the facade to discover reality.

Oliver North | September 21, 2007

Next week the Big Apple will host another gut buster -- "The World According to UNGA." If it were a flick, it would be a dark and depressing documentary combining the conspiratorial rantings of Oliver Stone, the eerie horror of Alfred Hitchcock and the antics of a Looney Tunes cartoon.

Pat Buchanan | September 21, 2007

We cannot allow fear of terror to monopolize our every waking hour or cause us to give up our freedom.

Linda Chavez | September 21, 2007

Hillary Clinton has spent years trying to erase the memory of her failed attempt to bring socialized medicine to the United States, but this week the ghost of Hillary Care was lurking in the wings again as she unveiled her new plan to overhaul the nation's health system.

Paul Greenberg | September 21, 2007

Felipe Calderon, the Mexican president, played to the nationalistic galleries in his own State of the Union address the other day- even though he was prevented from delivering it directly to his county's Congress. (He's the second consecutive president of Mexico to be denied that privilege by an obstreperous opposition.) Senor Calderon had to settle foran invitation-only event at the National Palace to attack the gringos'daring to enforce their immigration laws. In a particularly unfortunate phrase, he warned: "Mexico does not end at its borders."

Lorie Byrd | September 21, 2007

Back in the days before the President’s poll numbers plummeted over Iraq, perhaps the Bush administration’s best strategy was the rope-a-dope. We saw it played over time and time again. Democrats would attack Bush, he would ignore them as if they were nothing more than gnats. Democrats would ratchet up their attacks, going farther and farther out on a limb with each successive one until -- “thwap.”

Kathleen Parker | September 21, 2007

The latest smack-down of former Harvard President Lawrence Summers should extinguish any remaining doubt that political correctness is the new McCarthyism.

Charles Krauthammer | September 21, 2007

On Sept. 6, something important happened in northern Syria. Problem is, no one knows exactly what. Except for those few who were involved, and they're not saying.

Hugh Hewitt | September 21, 2007

Ahmadinejad has not run out of New York venues, though, because of the welcome extended him by Columbia University.

Mike Gallagher | September 20, 2007

The story of the “Jena Six” isn’t nearly as complicated as some would have us believe.

Rich Lowry | September 20, 2007

Global capitalism has long lacked for a ringing slogan like "workers of the world unite." It's never too late to find one, and a good candidate -- with apologies to the international charity of the same name -- might be "save the children."

Michael Reagan | September 20, 2007

Sometimes Hillary Clinton leaves me breathless with the sheer arrogance of her assumption that the American people are like a bunch of straw-chewing rubes eager to buy her latest brand of snake oil.

Amanda Carpenter | September 20, 2007

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) would not criticize on the campaign trail for an offensive advertisement the group produced to attack Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, but she sided with the anti-war lobby in a vote on Thursday.

Matt Mayer | September 20, 2007

When Hillary Clinton recently discarded the term liberal for the term progressive, it reminded me of the famous question of whether a leopard could change its spots? The answer, of course, is no.

Michael Fumento | September 20, 2007

New scientific discoveries keep eating away at the prophecy that “bird flu,” avian influenza type H5N1, will become readily transmissible from human to human and unleash a disastrous pandemic. This leaves little but rhetoric to counter the reality, such as massive death estimates.

Cliff May | September 20, 2007

A few short months ago, the anti-war left was feeling its oats. On campuses around the country, professors were receiving letters asking them to steer students to “a major new organizing initiative to end the War in Iraq – Iraq Summer.”

Thomas Sowell | September 20, 2007

If nothing else comes out of the Iraq war, it should banish the concept of "nation-building" from our language and our minds. "The track record of nation-building and Wilsonian grandiosity ought to give anyone pause," as was said in this column before the Iraq war began.

Larry Elder | September 20, 2007

Traditional media rush to use Greenspan to batter Bush. Then they downplay Greenspan's essential charge -- that government spends too much.

Mike Adams | September 20, 2007

Yesterday, I took the time to log on to to see whether there was any evidence suggesting Pino was spreading anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric in the classroom. I also wondered whether he was one of those History professors more into teaching about his present political views than teaching about the past.

Cal Thomas | September 20, 2007

In the never-ending contest for the minds (and votes) of those who still bother to think and vote, the disagreement over which side has the greatest influence in the media goes on, seemingly without end.

Suzanne Fields | September 20, 2007

The first hint of autumn, a sudden cool night making a sweater feel right and a bright day without the stifling humidity of summer, fills us with the remembrance of the ambivalent emotions about "back to school."

Matt Towery | September 20, 2007

After the 2000 presidential race, an odd thing happened in Florida. A little-known Northeastern university decided to try its hand at polling political races.

Paul Greenberg | September 20, 2007

Mr. Williams' book and message was summed up in its all-inclusive title: "Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America - And What We Can Do About It."

Donald Lambro | September 20, 2007

WASHINGTON -- The 2008 presidential-election cycle is full of odd anomalies reflecting the electorate's deep divisions and doubts about the candidates and their uncertainties about the future.

Jacob Sullum | September 20, 2007

In 1995, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal law that banned gun possession near schools. For the first time since the New Deal, the court ruled that Congress had exceeded its constitutional authority to regulate interstate commerce, its usual excuse for meddling in state and local matters.

Amanda Carpenter | September 20, 2007

Republicans are dusting off plans stop Democrats from daring President Bush to shut down the government, in a battle reminiscent of President Clinton’s 1995 budget standoff with the Congress.

Robert Novak | September 20, 2007

In Washington's conventional wisdom, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's opposition killed Theodore B. Olson as President Bush's choice for attorney general.

Marvin Olasky | September 20, 2007

Next week brings the 50th anniversary of the desegregation at gunpoint of Central High School in Little Rock, Ark.

George Will | September 20, 2007

Mukasey has been chosen by a president who has been more aggressive than any other in asserting what Theodore Roosevelt called the "residuum of powers" inherent in the presidency.

William Rusher | September 20, 2007

Whatever cretin at hit on the idea of running a full-page ad in The New York Times describing General Petraeus as "General Betray Us" probably never gave a moment's thought to the implication of that expression. And that tells us something sad about the level to which political debate in this country has sunk.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 20, 2007

Forty years ago this autumn I began my professional life as an innocent procreator of wisecracks by founding The American Spectator, a magazine that I suppose is taking its place in American literature as one extended wisecrack.

Steve Chapman | September 20, 2007

When President Bush nominated Michael Mukasey to be attorney general, presidential candidates offered reactions that broke down mostly on party lines -- Republicans positive, Democrats guarded.

Maggie Gallagher | September 19, 2007

The headline news on the gay marriage issue is that on Tuesday, Maryland's supreme court joined the growing list of state high courts upholding marriage as the union of husband and wife.

Ann Coulter | September 19, 2007

The only "crisis" in health care in this country is that doctors are paid too little. (Also they've come up with nothing to help that poor Dennis Kucinich.)

Mario Diaz | September 19, 2007

President Bush has nominated former federal judge Michael Mukasey to be the next U.S. Attorney General. Nominated to the bench by President Reagan in 1987 to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, where he served for over 18 years, Mukasey seems to be a very solid candidate.

Carrie Lukas | September 19, 2007

As the saying goes, in politics, timing is everything. No doubt Senator Hillary Clinton’s campaign thought carefully about the ideal moment to unveil her proposal to revamp the nation’s healthcare system. Senator Clinton’s history of politically disastrous forays into healthcare policy made this release that much more politically delicate.

Ed Feulner | September 19, 2007

It’s a common complaint: “There oughta be a law against [fill in the blank].” But these days, we hardly need more laws. Too many things are already illegal.

Matt Barber | September 19, 2007

"They feel kind for a season, but remain blind to all reason." Such is the nature of political correctness. And in that spirit, lawmakers — who are purportedly sane — plan to take us all on a "long strange trip" through a mystical fantasyland where the impossible is possible and the objectionable is obligatory.

Michael Gerson | September 19, 2007

Immigration used to be a debate among Republicans. Now the issue survives mainly as a weapon.

John McCaslin | September 19, 2007

The Palm, a favorite restaurant and watering hole for Washington's movers and shakers, reopens its remodeled facilities tomorrow, showing off a new glass-enclosed atrium, expanded bar (more elbow room for Democratic strategist James Carville's bar-stool lunches) and refurbished kitchen.

Cheryl Felicia Rhoads | September 19, 2007

Unfortunately, their life achievements may only be best defined by what can be put in a two minute montage or on a mantle.

Thomas Sowell | September 19, 2007

Nothing is easier than to second-guess other people's decisions, ignoring the inherent limitations of knowledge, the pressures of circumstances, and the dangers of alternative courses of action.

Michelle Malkin | September 19, 2007

Like actress Sally Field, I am a mom. Unlike Sally Field, I do not live in La-La Land.

John Stossel | September 19, 2007

One basic problem with nationalized health care is that it makes medical services seem free. That pushes demand beyond supply. Governments deal with that by limiting what's available.

Walter E. Williams | September 19, 2007

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's closest adviser and architect of the New Deal, Harry Hopkins, advised, "Tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect, because the people are too damn dumb to know the difference." Professor Bryan Caplan, my colleague at George Mason University, sheds some light on Hopkins' observation in his new book, "The Myth of the Rational Voter: Why Democracies Choose Bad Policies."

Brent Bozell | September 19, 2007

Howard Kurtz, the longtime Washington Post media reporter and CNN media-show host, inadvertently defined exactly what's wrong with our political culture.

Jonah Goldberg | September 19, 2007

"While there are significant long-term risks associated with such contractual arrangements, the well-informed actor, motivated by some historically recognized intangibilities - maximization of regalement, binary association, et al. - finds that those outweigh the downside risks. To wit, would you - exigencies and externalities permitting - enter into a matrimonial association of indefinite duration with me?"

Tony Blankley | September 19, 2007

It takes more than a formulaic recitation of conventional conservative pieties -- low taxes, balanced budgets, strong defense, traditional values -- to deserve to be heir to the Reagan legacy.

Terry Jeffrey | September 19, 2007

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose political acumen is acknowledged even by Democratic detractors, said something last week that had liberals reflexively nodding.

Ben Shapiro | September 19, 2007

Apparently, Judaism has found a new representative: Madonna. "I am an ambassador for Judaism," Madonna proclaimed this week while visiting Israeli President Shimon Peres.

By the first week of October 2001, American's chit-chat class had lost patience with America's new war in Afghanistan.

The presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton has unleashed something new upon the political landscape: the wives.

Paul Weyrich | September 19, 2007

What is the effect of the advertisement in The New York Times that questioned General David H. Petraeus, who now leads our troops in Iraq?

Amanda Carpenter | September 19, 2007

Following General Petraeus’ testimony before Congress last week, embedded blogger Jeff Emanuel took a few moments to correspond via email with about what he has witnessed on the front lines in Iraq.

Michael Medved | September 19, 2007

Few opinions I've expressed on air have produced a more indignant, outraged reaction than my repeated insistence that the word "genocide" in no way fits as a description of the treatment of Native Americans by British colonists or, later, American settlers.

Douglas MacKinnon | September 18, 2007

Who in the United States really supports our troops? If truth be told, basically nobody.

Dr. Matthew Ladner | September 18, 2007

I have an admittedly odd appreciation for left-wing protest songs. For my money (sorry boomers) there is none finer than Tracy Chapman's Talkin' Bout a Revolution.

Lee Culpepper | September 18, 2007

When good Americans go bad, there's one man who is their best friend: General David Petraeus. In fact, no congressman is too much for him to handle -- he rehabilitates mentally unstable liberals; he leads brave military people. He is the Congress Whisperer.

John McCaslin | September 18, 2007

"Great citation of the Lee letter," writes one Inside the Beltway reader, who notes, as we did, that Lee's telling line is often mistakenly attributed to the first duke of Wellington, Sir Arthur Wellesley.

Caroline Glick | September 18, 2007

If media reports of last week's IAF raid in Syria pan out, the attack against a North-Korean-supplied Syrian nuclear facility in eastern Syria should serve as a pivotal event in the free world's understanding of the enemy it faces in the current global war.

Amanda Carpenter | September 18, 2007

Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) argued wealthy Americans have received too many tax benefits under the Bush administration and if elected President he would install a fairer tax code.

David Strom | September 18, 2007

Several cities have set up municipal wireless systems—which have been largely huge financial failures—and now some are getting into the “fiber optic to the home” business.

Janice Shaw Crouse | September 18, 2007

There is a new wrinkle in the old argument about federally-funded universal child care. According to the National Association for Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies one in five (23 percent) women is delaying pregnancy or has decided against having a second or third child because she cannot afford day care costs.

William Wilson | September 18, 2007

The New York Times Company has a serious problem on its hands. The actions of their sales department for their keystone paper fall directly in the category of corporate theft.

Amanda Carpenter | September 18, 2007

The Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee will introduce language to the defense authorization bill to set a timetable to withdraw troops from Iraq, he told reporters at the National Press Club Monday evening.

Carl Horowitz | September 18, 2007

That labor unions have become champions of the right of illegal immigrants to remain in this country is hardly news. Back in 2000, the AFL-CIO, pushed by its president, John Sweeney, issued a statement supporting unconditional amnesty for illegal workers and their families.

Mary Katharine Ham | September 18, 2007

It’s a canard of the hard anti-war Left that they all, without exception, hate the war, but support the troops.

Thomas Sowell | September 18, 2007

John Agresto, a career American academic and former college president who volunteered to go help create a better higher education system in Iraq, learned a lot about Iraqi society in general and about American attempts to create a better society there.

David Limbaugh | September 18, 2007

I don't think nearly enough has been made of the despicable character assassination attack ad against General David Petraeus and the Democratic leadership's striking refusal to repudiate it. If you want to see the face of the modern Democratic Party, re-read that ad.

Cal Thomas | September 18, 2007

"If you can read this, thank a teacher," says the bumper sticker on the car in front of me. But literacy is more than the ability to read a bumper sticker. It also includes the accumulation of basic knowledge combined with a way of thinking that allows an individual to lead a life that is personally productive and contributes to America's health and welfare.

Dennis Prager | September 18, 2007

Whether one is on the left or right, it cannot be denied that the left has had an enormous impact on the major institutions of American society -- specifically journalism, education and the judiciary.

Pat Buchanan | September 18, 2007

Workers are given the day off, and encouraged to go home and do their best to conceive a new Russian. The hope is to have a bumper crop of babies on Russia's national holiday, nine months off.

Kathryn Lopez | September 18, 2007

I'm officially sick of the way we conduct our politics. I have no beef with partisanship in principle: People should debate their differences. But in the end, we must remember that we're Americans, not just Republicans and Democrats. Sometimes we must simply stand together.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 18, 2007

It looks like Americans will soon have two more Dubai-Ports/Harriet Miers moments. President George W. Bush has climbed out on a limb and it is about to get sawed off because he is clearly flouting the wishes of the American people. While Bush was using the platform of his departure from Sydney, Australia, to blast "protectionism" and pledge his commitment to "free trade," the Department of Transportation was proving that the president values unfair trade with foreign countries above protection of U.S. safety and jobs.

Bill Murchison | September 18, 2007

I haven't yet inquired of the most intelligent person I know, but I think she'd endorse a critical element in Alan Greenspan's critique of the Republican party, as conveyed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Rich Lowry | September 17, 2007

When it comes to health care, Hillary Clinton is never going to let her name be associated with the words "radical overhaul" ever again.

Ken Connor | September 17, 2007

"The operation was a success, but the prognosis of the patient is guarded." That statement sums up the marathon testimony that General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker gave on Capitol Hill this week.

Bill Steigerwald | September 17, 2007

Ace GQ magazine correspondent Lisa DePaulo this summer scored an exclusive close encounter with former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Amanda Carpenter | September 17, 2007

President Bush nominated retired judge Michael Mukasey to replace the outgoing attorney general Alberto Gonzales amid threats from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) that Democrats would block former solicitor general Ted Olson from the post.

John McCaslin | September 17, 2007

"It's going to be a Clinton-Obama ticket," top Republican presidential contender Rudolph W. Giuliani told Inside the Beltway, saying Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York will win the Democratic presidential nomination and choose Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois as her running mate.

Richard H. Collins | September 17, 2007

If there is one thing the media agrees upon it is that Hillary Clinton runs a shrewd and disciplined campaign. This mantra runs through practically every media mention as they report the tried and true horse race story lines.

Michael Barone | September 17, 2007

Goldsmith, who withdrew his predecessors interrogation opinions, nevertheless understands this and makes a strong case that our national security apparatus is overlawyered.

Suzanne Fields | September 17, 2007

There is no greater lie than to falsely accuse a person of being a liar. The slander by, the smearing machine of the Democratic lunatic left, rises to the highest office of the land, falsely accusing the president of lying about weapons of mass destruction in Saddam Hussein's Iraq, which was not a lie but a mistake based on the intelligence gathered by several nations of the coalition. A mistake is not a lie; an accusation of mistake has no power to destroy a reputation.

Paul Greenberg | September 17, 2007

With gasoline prices now only medium outrageous, Gentle Reader may have forgotten how eager politicians were last year to find someone to blame when the pain at the pumps was off the charts.

Donald Lambro | September 17, 2007

There is no doubt that Gen. David Petraeus won the politically charged slugfest on Capitol Hill last week when he called for the withdrawal of 30,000 troops from Iraq between now and early next year.

Armstrong Williams | September 17, 2007

Last week once again we reflected on the memory of the 9-11 terrorist attacks that almost seem ancient to some and just last week for others. The 9-11 responders are still suffering tragic health crises as a result of their heroic actions of that day. We often think of those that are deceased and often don't remember those that suffered loss of health, way of life, and any meaning to their day to day living.

Robert Novak | September 17, 2007

While Rangel appears to be preparing for big-time tax increases in 2009, he is giving it a try for 2007.

First of all, I am Mike Adams and I would urge some modification of your form responses when you speak directly to the person who is responsible for the flood of emails you have received over the last few days.

Star Parker | September 17, 2007

Democratic politicians are either far more insightful than your average Republican, or, uniformly more political. I'd opt for the latter conclusion.

Carol Platt Liebau | September 17, 2007

General Petraeus’ testimony on Capitol Hill last week undermined numerous Democratic talking points about the progress of the war and the situation on the ground in Iraq.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | September 17, 2007

Unfortunately, many conservatives have earned their stripes by being critical and negative.

By this time, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the latest scandal at the New York Times.

Frank Pastore | September 16, 2007

Liberals love to say “The Bible talks more about poverty than anything else,' and from this they claim support for their increasingly socialist agenda.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | September 16, 2007

Last Monday, the New York Times ran an ad paid for by the pro-Democratic organization with the headline, “General Petraeus or General Betray us? Cooking the books for the White House.” The ad ran the same day that General Petraeus testified before Congress about Iraq.

Austin Hill | September 16, 2007

It may be the “cliché that won’t go away.” But it lingers - - and for good reason.

Hillary Clinton promises to fix Social Security, with both hands (and all options) tied behind her back.

Kevin McCullough | September 16, 2007

At this very moment one of the most liberal organizations in our nation has fraudulent papers before a court in the Midwest awaiting permission to begin the systematic slaughter of innocent children on Tuesday.

Robert Bluey | September 16, 2007

The anger and frustration over Iraq that prompted voters to bounce many Republicans from Congress last November was supposed to give Democrats the momentum they needed to end the war. Instead, 10 months after Election Day, many are conflicted and confused about what to do next.
