Hillary tried to garner some Fifty Cent-like street credit last week by lying to us all that a sniper tried to bust a cap in her while she was chillin’ in Bosnia back in the day. Fo’ shizzle, Hillarizzle.

Hillary Clinton’s made-from-whole-cloth fantasy about the perils of her trip to Bosnia was no unique foray into a world of make-believe accomplishments.

Michael Barone | March 29, 2008

Jerry Agar | March 27, 2008

I did not spend a moment today thinking about how to keep the black man down. Just another day. So stop telling me everything is my fault.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | March 27, 2008

A lovable elephant is stealing the hearts of children and adults across America. Would you ever expect that Horton of “Horton Hears a Who” could reach the pinnacle of Hollywood stardom as the lead in a number-one box-office hit?

A major strategist in John McCain's campaign was asked privately this week whether his candidate might propose cutting the payroll tax. "Yes," came the reply. "No problem. Not a big deal."

It being a free country and all, no one has to have a "conversation" he doesn't want to have, a fact that explains our longstanding non-conversation on race.

Chuck Norris | March 25, 2008

Reading the news this past week, one easily could conclude we have lost our minds, as well as any remaining connection with our Founding Fathers. There were three stories that thrice prove we are heading down three wrong roads.

Anyone who has been in politics for any length of time has been involved in a campaign which, for no good reason, suddenly goes bad.

Star Parker | March 24, 2008

There's some sense that Obama's relationship with Wright hints at a possible hidden subversive side of his that makes him more dangerous than Clinton. But there's no reason to have concerns about one and not the other.

Last Thursday evening I sat in the green room of the Hannity and Colmes show.

Carol Platt Liebau | March 24, 2008

All right, so Schumer’s speech was a seething nest of clichés. But while sticks and stones may break bones, words will never hurt, right?

David Stokes | March 23, 2008

Though Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s diatribes have been widely condemned, some have sought to dismiss them as episodic rather than chronic; a few isolated statements wrested out of context by those looking for anti-Obama ammunition.

Paul Jacob | March 23, 2008

The doctrine of eminent domain just got strengthened in Missouri, justifying the most outrageous acts of Robin Hoodlumry. But the practice can be stopped.

Kevin McCullough | March 23, 2008

Even though Barack Obama has "moved on" from the messy association that he has recently been forced to explain to man who had been his pastor for 20 years, it is clear - the voters haven't.

Ken Connor | March 23, 2008

Can America have a rational discussion about race?
