David Stokes | April 18, 2010

Of course, it will be appealed and wind its way through a process of judicial, if not national debate before all is said and done, but the mind fairly boggles at the arrogant absurdity of a court in this land ruling the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional. Back when George W. Bush occupied the Oval Office, the radical anti-theist group (read: atheists on steroids), “Freedom From Religion,” filed a lawsuit and the toxic seed planted then has now borne poisonous fruit. Stay tuned.

Kevin McCullough | April 18, 2010

Few people are more misguided than those who teach false doctrine, and few pose more danger than those who willfully deceive in order to gain power.

Doug Giles | April 17, 2010

This past Thursday I was let out of my cage and allowed to emcee the Palm Beach Tea Party

We predict Republicans will takeover both Houses of Congress. The question is: Once they achieve power, what will they do with it?

Humberto Fontova | April 17, 2010

On the night of Friday April 9th, a petite female political operative and her boyfriend were attacked and seriously injured in New Orleans by a vicious group of crazed cowards who shrieked political insults while pouncing. After the pummeling, the petite female and her boyfriend were left, collectively, with a compound leg fracture, a concussion, a broken nose and broken jaw. No robbery occurred.

Carl Horowitz | April 17, 2010

America’s colleges and universities might not qualify as bailout material, but the nation should get ready for what amounts to a federal takeover of higher education financing. Legislation signed March 30 by President Barack Obama practically seals the deal. And despite the administration’s claims to the contrary, taxpayers may find the transition exceedingly expensive.

Rich Tucker | April 16, 2010

If you’re reading this, it’s probably safe to assume you’re a hateful right-winger. At least, it’s safe to assume that the mainstream media will assume you’re a hateful right winger.

Robert Knight | April 16, 2010

Driving in to the Tea Party rally on April 15, I was listening to CBS radio news, whose correspondent talked about “the 3,000 people” there and their quaint concerns. His tone was, at best, patronizing.

Kathryn Lopez | April 16, 2010

I was shocked by a recent Associated Press headline that read: "U.S. Catholic church moving faster on abuse cases." Not because it was news to me, but because it was making news. At a time of great sadness, anger and confusion, a media outlet appeared to be honestly trying to understand and report what is actually happening now in the Roman Catholic Church in America. After an Easter-time frenzy of calls for the pope's resignation, this wire story was an acknowledgement of reform and leadership.

Christopher Doyle | April 16, 2010

April 16 is the National Day of Silence, where students nationwide refrain from speaking to bring attention to the mistreatment of gay and lesbian youth in schools. However, it’s not the LGBT students who are being bullied these days, but the thousands of young people that have unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA), the former homosexuals who have changed from gay to straight, and the researchers and therapists who dare to help them. If anyone is guilty of bullying, it’s the homosexual activists who are pushing their political agenda through the mainstream media, medical, and mental health communities.

Matt Barber | April 16, 2010

We have a president loath to acknowledge American exceptionalism. Indeed, the weight of the evidence suggests that our chief executive, through both word and deed and with malice aforethought, seeks to undermine – if not dismantle – that exceptionalism.

John Boehner | April 16, 2010

Families and small businesses across the nation face soaring costs of living, a struggling economy, and, as expected, rising gasoline prices as we head into the summer months.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | April 16, 2010

Liberal critics derided President Bush for engaging in cowboy diplomacy, or "going alone." Those same critics neglect to notice that Obama is employing a more dubious strategy than Bush.

Rich Galen | April 16, 2010

This is the first year - maybe ever - that I actually prepared, paid, and filed my federal and state income taxes well in advance of April 15. I, therefore, spent the day feeling very, very superior, and walked up to complete strangers to tell them I had done my taxes weeks ago.

David Harsanyi | April 16, 2010

Yesterday I waded into a mass of tea party protesters gathered at the front of Colorado's Capitol and completely forgot to brace myself for a "small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht" (as New York Times columnist Frank Rich once characterized these events).

Ken Blackwell | April 16, 2010

When he was diagnosed with cancer, where did he go? To New York, of course. To the United States of America. We should be justly proud that this citizen of the world came to us.

Michelle Malkin | April 16, 2010

The House Democrats' Torquemada got cold feet. Self-styled "chief inquisitor" Henry Waxman announced this week that he's canceling a planned show trial of corporate executives who called public attention to the financial hit they're taking as a result of President Obama's health care mandate.

Brent Bozell | April 16, 2010

Six years after "The Passion of the Christ," anyone expecting a renaissance in faith-based movies has largely been disappointed. This is not to say such movies aren't produced.

Mike Adams | April 16, 2010

A member of the American Association of University Professors wrote to chastise me for writing about “isolated incidents” that are not representative of the state of higher education. Maybe I should have named this column "Isolated Incident 633."

David Limbaugh | April 16, 2010

There seems to be no limit to the Obamacrats' appetite for expanding federal power and for fabricating and exploiting crises, which must never be allowed "to go to waste."

Mona Charen | April 16, 2010

Welcoming the leaders of 47 nations to Washington to discuss what he called "an unprecedented threat," President Obama described in ominous terms the potential for nuclear terrorism.

Oliver North | April 16, 2010

Some commanders call it a "tactical pause" to give time for additional U.S. and allied troops to surge into the country.

Pat Buchanan | April 16, 2010

Apparently, Eric Massa propositioned his own chief of staff, Joe Racalto, who told Leonnig that "he tried in the fall of 2009 to bloc Massa from being alone with young male staffers and demanded that he move out of a townhouse he shared with staff members.

Suzanne Fields | April 16, 2010

Pedestrians in Washington have to be a patient lot. The Nuclear Security Summit was a big deal for Barack Obama and the visiting heads of state, but for everyone else it was only an opportunity to watch diplomats speeding down the avenues in big black rented limousines, trying to look important.

Debra J. Saunders | April 16, 2010

The Republican National Committee has an African-American chairman, Michael Steele, and still the GOP manages to come across as racially insensitive, as well as just plain insensitive. That's no easy feat.

Linda Chavez | April 16, 2010

Benjamin Hooks, former head of the NAACP and long-time civil rights activist died this week at 85. I will miss him, my sometimes-adversary but always-gentleman debating partner.

Charles Krauthammer | April 16, 2010

There was something oddly disproportionate about the just-concluded nuclear summit to which President Obama summoned 46 world leaders, the largest such gathering on American soil since 1945.

Reza Kahlili | April 16, 2010

In his recent Norouz (New Year) message to Iranians, President Obama once again called for dialogue with the rulers of Iran, and once again addressed the country as the “Islamic Republic of Iran.” This latter point was clearly to reassure the Islamic Government that the United States of America would not dispute their leadership and that regime change in Iran was not part of the Obama Administration’s plans.

Donald Lambro | April 15, 2010

There are good reasons to slow the rush by Senate Democrats to pass a bureaucracy-heavy financial regulation bill just to hand President Obama another legislative trophy in a tough election year.

Diana West | April 15, 2010

Just as the Pulitzer Prizes come around every year, a conservative columnist comes around after them, dusting off the hard fact, as measured in an ever-expanding set of tally marks, that conservatives rarely get to pop a champagne cork over one of their own.

Larry Kudlow | April 15, 2010

So much is being written in the mainstream media about who the tea partiers are, but very little is being recorded about what these folks are actually saying.

Jillian Bandes | April 15, 2010

Flat taxers. Fair taxers. Funky taxers. You name it, they were crowded outside the IRS building this morning in honor of Tax Day. Protesting the annual day of paying up to Uncle Sam is becoming an annual event to protest big government and excessive spending.

Marvin Olasky | April 15, 2010

When you contemplate the taxes you're paying, are you an optimist or a pessimist? Definitions: The pessimist says, “Things can't get any worse.” The optimist says, "Yes they can." This starts off my first annual joke column.

Janice Shaw Crouse | April 15, 2010

According to Ronald Reagan, the American taxpayer is someone who works for the federal government without having to pass the civil service examination. That is truer today than in Reagan’s day.

Cliff May | April 15, 2010

In recent days, the Obama administration has fired a salvo of national security initiatives: a new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), a new National Security Strategy (NSS), and this week's Nuclear Security Summit attended by more than 40 heads of state.

Jillian Bandes | April 15, 2010

Murphy is yet another vulnerable Democrat who caved to President Obama’s demands and voted “yes” on the health care bill despite his constituents’ opposition. He is one of the 37 Democrats who originally voted “no” and then switched.

Hugh Hewitt | April 15, 2010

When the Senate's Republican leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor this week to denounce the latest version of Chris Dodd's vision for how American finance and banking ought to be run, McConnell eased fears among conservatives of all sorts that the GOP would go along with an alleged Wall Street makeover just to avoid the prospect of an MSM chorus of denunciation of Republicans as obstructionists.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | April 15, 2010

Next week marks the 40th Earth Day and provides an opportunity to re-evaluate the environmental movement.

Victor Davis Hanson | April 15, 2010

Six years ago, the conventional wisdom was that Ayad Allawi, then prime minister of the appointed Iraqi Interim Government, was a puppet of the United States.

Michael Barone | April 15, 2010

It's not hard to predict how the coming fight over financial regulation legislation will be framed by most of the mainstream media. Democrats like Christopher Dodd, the sponsor of the pending Senate bill, will be portrayed as cracking down on greedy Wall Street operators. Republicans will be portrayed as letting Wall Street operators have their way.

Larry Elder | April 15, 2010

"I'm not exaggerating," said President Barack Obama. "Leaders of the Republican Party ... called the passage of (the health care reform bill) 'Armageddon.' Armageddon! 'End of freedom as we know it.' So after I signed the bill, I looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or some cracks opening up in the earth. Turned out it was a nice day. Birds were chirping. Folks were strolling down the Mall."

Cal Thomas | April 15, 2010

Most Americans may not be fluent in the language of economics, but thanks to our Puritan heritage ("waste not, want not") we understand waste quite well.

Matt Towery | April 15, 2010

With age and experience comes a trace of wisdom. In talking to various Washington insiders over the last few days, I've noticed a predominant theme: The GOP establishment hasn't a clue how to manage the so-called Tea Party movement.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 15, 2010

The pro-abortion lobby cannot be happy about a law that has just been passed and signed in faraway Nebraska. There anti-abortion forces must have clout. The law bans most abortions 20 weeks after conception on the basis of "fetal pain."

Steve Chapman | April 15, 2010

In 1990, in one of the most innovative developments in modern American education, the Milwaukee public schools created a parental choice system. Some low-income parents got vouchers that could be used to send their children to private schools.

Ross Mackenzie | April 15, 2010

This week included Tax Day (April 15) and a lot of local Tea Party rallies drawing thousands of primarily middle-class citizens protesting the growing role of government in their lives.

George Will | April 15, 2010

Stiffening their sinews and summoning up their blood, pugnacious liberals and conservatives who relish contemporary Washington's recurring Armageddons are eager for a summer-long struggle over Barack Obama's nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.

Joseph C. Phillips | April 15, 2010

Such was our founder’s belief in the preeminence of God that when the First Continental Congress convened in 1774, Massachusetts delegate Thomas Cushing suggested to the assembly that together they pray for divine guidance and protection.

Maggie Gallagher | April 14, 2010

I'm reading the latest study, hot off the press of the always fascinating National Bureau of Economic Research: 'The Effect of Daughters on Partisanship,' by New York University professors Dalton Conley and Emily Rauscher.

David French | April 14, 2010

In the era of the leviathan state, we need the Constitution more than ever. When most citizens think of our obviously expanding government, we think of the direct, obvious costs.

Ann Coulter | April 14, 2010

Two observations about retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens are about to become established fact by sheer repetition. The first -- that Stevens is the last Protestant on the court -- is not true in any meaningful sense.

Robert Knight | April 14, 2010

What with the bailouts, the stimulus, and now the government health care takeover, we’re being told that we face $1 trillion annual deficits for the indefinite future, with a $12 trillion to $20 trillion debt by 2020. In February, Congress raised the federal debt limit to $14.3 trillion. That’s bad.

Matt Patterson | April 14, 2010

Some disasters strike suddenly, wrecking havoc in the dead of night: lightning, tornadoes, earthquakes, Jay Leno. Others, a hurricane, for example, can be seen coming far in advance. Meteorologists can warn about such a storm, but that is no guarantee that 1) anyone will listen, or 2) that even if warnings are heeded there is much that can be done to lessen the damage.

Jeanne Monahan | April 14, 2010

President Obama is an exceptional orator and knows how to choose his words well. However in the end, while words hold a certain power, the intrinsic reality behind words is what really matters.

Michael Reagan | April 14, 2010

The Obama administration has seen a frustrating lack of progress in diplomatic relations. After spending so much time bashing the Bush administration for failing to achieve unity in matters of great international importance, this administration is failing to realize the types of diplomatic gains they predicted.

Rich Galen | April 14, 2010

I have not jumped into the anti-Obama hay wagon with those of you who have claimed he might signal the end of American civilization as we know it.

Ashley Herzog | April 14, 2010

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. On college campuses, it usually culminates in a Take Back the Night march, an event promoting the idea that women should be free to go out alone at night without fear.

Michelle Malkin | April 14, 2010

One of the popular signs spotted at Tea Party protests across the country over the past year goes like this: "It doesn't matter what this sign says. You'll call it racism, anyway!"

John Stossel | April 14, 2010

It's that joyous time of year: income tax time. So I spend time with my accountant. I don't want to see him, but I must. I could not do what he's doing. The tax code has grown so complex that today most Americans hire someone to do their taxes.

Walter E. Williams | April 14, 2010

Which allows an American Samoan worker to have a higher standard of living: being employed at $3.26 per hour or unemployed at a wage scheduled to annually increase by 50 cents until it reaches federally mandated wages at $7.25?

Brent Bozell | April 14, 2010

A new study by Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center found only 19 news stories on the Tea Party movement for the entire year on ABC, CBS and NBC. The Obama family dog received more attention.

Jonah Goldberg | April 14, 2010

If you don't mind, I'm going to skip the preliminary bouts over which party is more hypocritical for switching its views on Supreme Court nominees.

Tony Blankley | April 14, 2010

The Republican Party must break with its long-established cautious instincts and make a bold stand for first principles of freedom and constitutional limitations on government -- from full repeal of Obamacare to rolling back multitrillion-dollar deficits.

Michael Medved | April 14, 2010

How does reducing the number of nuclear weapons in America’s arsenal make our nation stronger or safer? How does it help to deter potential chemical or biological attacks if we rule out nuclear retaliation in advance?

Ben Shapiro | April 14, 2010

There is a disturbing anti-Americanism that animates Obama and his policies.

David Harsanyi | April 14, 2010

With all the praise being heaped on departing Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a person might have forgotten momentarily that the man spent a good chunk of the past two decades working to soften up the Constitution.

Austin Bay | April 14, 2010

A battle rages over the definition of war -- war in cyberspace, that is. A definition matters because the stakes are already enormous in this "new geography of warfare."

Paul Greenberg | April 14, 2010

The television is on way up in a corner of the office. But with the sound off, it's scarcely noticeable. And much preferable.

Mike Needham | April 14, 2010

Government has become an engine of redistribution, creating a growing constituency of “takers” supported by a shrinking population of “givers.” As a result, America’s ethic of self-reliance—and the institutions of civil society designed to provide neighborly care to the needy—face the gravest threat posed in our nation’s history.

Jacob Sullum | April 14, 2010

As Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens "gradually became the leader of the court's liberal wing," The New York Times reports, "he became increasingly skeptical of claims of government power."

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | April 14, 2010

For some investors, selling a winner -- an investment with a hefty gain -- can be a difficult decision, but many investors find that selling a loser requires even more nerve.

Tue, Apr 13, 2010

Donald Lambro | April 13, 2010

President Obama and the Democrats have a lot of anger-inducing issues facing them this election year, including staggering debt, the deficit and an unpopular health-care law.

Paul Kengor | April 13, 2010

The crash of a Polish airplane in the Russian territory of Smolensk last weekend is a stunning tragedy, taking the life of Polish President Lech Kaczynski, his wife, and high-level figures in the Polish government.

Alex Nowrasteh | April 13, 2010

America’s immigration bureaucracies are rife with waste and inefficiency. Yet taxpayer dollars are not the only thing they put at risk. The nation’s security suffers, too.

Armstrong Williams | April 13, 2010

Look no further, political junkies, I've finally figured out why Michael Steele isn't even close to leaving his post as party chairman. Given the swelling Republican tsunami threatening to wash Democrats from power in less than eight months, Steele believes he's riding high. In short, he's too big to fail.

Thomas Sowell | April 13, 2010

When Supreme Court Justices retire, there is usually some pious talk about their "service," especially when it has been a long "service." But the careers of all too many of these retiring jurists, including currently retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, have been an enormous disservice to this country.

Chuck Norris | April 13, 2010

Some are rejoicing over the passing of Obamacare, but their joy certainly will turn to mourning once they've experienced the trickling down of related costs and taxes over the years.

John Hawkins | April 13, 2010

With our country drowning in a deep blue ocean of debt and stuck in the maw of the worst crew of socialists, kleptocrats, and incompetents to rule over a great nation since the downfall of the Roman empire, it's easy to be pessimistic.

Mike Adams | April 13, 2010

The notion of stating up front that the U.S. will not use nuclear weapons in response to a biological or chemical attack at the hands of a non-nuclear nation is predicated upon the liberal assumption that making nice promises assures that others will reciprocate by behaving nicely.

David Limbaugh | April 13, 2010

If accurate accounting and the actual tax consequences were to be fully publicized, Obamacare would be even less popular.

Mona Charen | April 13, 2010

As one who does not play or follow golf, and who doesn't know a birdie from a chickadee, I was pleased to see Phil Mickelson win the Masters. His long embrace of his ailing wife (she has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer) was a moving moment.

Ken Blackwell | April 13, 2010

When asked if he believes in American exceptionalism, President Obama said yes, but he was sure that the British and the Belgians also believed in their countries’ exceptionalism.

Cal Thomas | April 13, 2010

Wouldn't it be nice (as the Beach Boys sang in a completely different context) if once, just once, a liberal Democrat president nominated to the Supreme Court someone he believed reflected his views of the Constitution only to see that justice swing to the right after he was confirmed?

Dennis Prager | April 13, 2010

Reading the onslaught of angry denunciations of Burger King by mental health organizations and mainstream media reporters this past week reminded me of a characteristic of the Left not often commented on: a certain joylessness, even an antipathy to the little joys that contribute more than almost anything else to most people's ability to endure the difficulties of life.

Pat Buchanan | April 13, 2010

The decapitation of the Polish government last weekend, including President Lech Kaczynski and the military leadership, on that flight to Smolensk to commemorate the Katyn Massacre, brings to mind the terrible and tragic days and deeds of what many yet call the Good War.

Humberto Fontova | April 13, 2010

At the Bay of Pigs, Lynch and his band of Cuban brothers learned -- first in speechless shock and finally in burning rage -- that their most powerful enemies were not Castro's Soviet-armed and led soldiers massing in Santa Clara, Cuba, but the Ivy League's Best and Brightest dithering in Washington.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 13, 2010

Income tax day, April 15, 2010, now divides Americans into two almost equal classes: those who pay for the services provided by government and the freeloaders. The percentage of Americans who will pay no federal income taxes at all for 2009 has risen to 47 percent.

Ed Feulner | April 13, 2010

As the American Bar Association reported a few years ago, there are now so many laws (at least 4,000 by one expert estimation) “that there is no conveniently accessible, complete list of federal crimes.”

Rebecca Hagelin | April 13, 2010

The decent, hard-working, freedom-loving Americans who dare to raise their voices in protest against injustice are my heroes.

Ken Blackwell | April 13, 2010

President Obama’s version of American exceptionalism is Lake Woebegon’s children: they’re all above average.

Mon, Apr 12, 2010

Byron York | April 12, 2010

There's an ongoing debate among Republicans about what it means to repeal Obamacare. Does it mean abolishing the whole thing? Does it mean nullifying just the most troublesome parts?

Mark W. Hendrickson | April 12, 2010

Recently, progressives have made noise about introducing a value-added tax (VAT) in the United States. The VAT is an indirect tax—that is, Americans wouldn’t pay the tax directly to government, but would pay it to businesses as part of the retail price of things we buy, and businesses would then remit the tax to Uncle Sam.

Allen Hunt | April 12, 2010

merica's understanding of sexual conduct involving minors has swung from one end of a pendulum to another. From a 1970's laissez-faire Polanski approach to a fully repressed Victorian renaissance in the 2000's. As a result, in our effort to protect children, we are not only targeting predators, we are targeting almost anyone.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | April 12, 2010

In recent weeks, several leading Republicans have been crying for the ouster of Party Chairman Michael Steele. If Steele is fired or resigns before he completes a critical stabilization plan for the party, it may spell doom for the RNC in 2010 and beyond. Let may say it simply: Steele must be kept in place until there is a clear vision and mandate that is created for the party’s future.

Frank Gaffney | April 12, 2010

Sarah Palin has clearly gotten under President Obama's skin with her sharp critique of his wooly-headed pursuit of U.S. denuclearization.

Joseph C. Phillips | April 12, 2010

I received my census form, dutifully filled it out and mailed it off. In the blank reserved for racial classification I wrote in capital letters, “HUMAN.”

Rich Galen | April 12, 2010

President Barack Obama is on an anti-nuclear binge. It is obviously a good thing to want to reduce nuclear weapons on the planet, and I hope he is successful.

Michael Barone | April 12, 2010

While the issue of whether to criminalize abortion tended to favor Democrats, the political issues that now raise constitutional questions tend to favor Republicans.

Mike Adams | April 12, 2010

In the past, I have been critical of radical leftist university president Rosemary DePaolo. I’ve directed specific criticism towards her for valuing diversity over competence.

Star Parker | April 12, 2010

As a young woman I was on welfare myself. I saw from inside the perverse and destructive culture it created. A dehumanized culture of dependence and irresponsibility that encourages behavior exactly the opposite of what a successful life demands.

Terry Paulson | April 12, 2010

Dennis Prager has recently added a pearl of wisdom to his repertoire of truths—“The larger the government, the smaller the individual.” The biggest danger from President Obama’s march to bigger government rests in what this means to the grounding principles that have made America great.

Bruce Bialosky | April 12, 2010

Recently, the Obama Administration picked a fight with Israel because a bureaucrat announced the approval of the fourth of seven stages for 1,600 housing units to be built in Jerusalem, even though construction won’t begin until at least 2013.

Bill Murchison | April 12, 2010

A congressional proponent of the nation's first federal income tax law, enacted in 1894, was, to say the least, beside himself over the wonders he and his colleagues had wrought.

Joseph C. Phillips | April 12, 2010

I received my census form, dutifully filled it out and mailed it off. In the blank reserved for racial classification I wrote in capital letters, “HUMAN.”

Jillian Bandes | April 11, 2010

Didn’t watch all five hours of speakers from SRLC's closing day lineup? Townhall's Jillian Bandes was there and has the best from the governors, members of Congress and media personalities that took to the stage and stirred up the crowd.

Salena Zito | April 11, 2010

The nation is in its longest period of continual war now, although it faces a different kind of warfare and a different kind of enemy. The average American has not had to make significant sacrifices this time, unlike most previous wartime generations.

Austin Hill | April 11, 2010

If President Obama weakens America, will the world be more “fair?” Back on September 20th of 2009, I authored a column that pondered this very question.

Debra J. Saunders | April 11, 2010

There are two ways the Senate can approach a president's judicial nominees -- and specifically President Barack Obama's nomination of University of California, Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in San Francisco.

Steve Chapman | April 11, 2010

One of baseball's venerable axioms is that no one goes to a game to watch the umpires. Maybe not, but I for one will be happy to go to cheer the umpires.

George Will | April 11, 2010

Today, nearly half of Social Security recipients choose to begin getting benefits at 62. This is a grotesque perversion of a program that was never intended to subsidize retirees for a third to a half of their adult lives.

Ken Connor | April 11, 2010

It's been almost a year since America's Tea Party protesters first gathered to voice their opposition to Washington's profligate ways.

Paul Jacob | April 11, 2010

For some, in ideological debate, "playing hardball" means hysterical fantasizing and fearmongering

David Stokes | April 11, 2010

Maybe they’re on to something across the pond. It was announced the other day that the next national election in Great Britain will take place on May 6, and the stakes will be high. A 30-day campaign—can you imagine that?
