Don’t worry. Paris Hilton hasn’t been made Headlines Editor at Townhall.com, and no, we’re not launching a swimsuit edition. Instead, Townhall.com is putting readers in charge of telling the rest of America and the world what we should all be reading.

Each day, Townhall editors pull together the best in free market analysis, traditional values, and conservative opinion. Nearly every day we’re asked what’s hot in political commentary. On radio shows, in print, and via email, we rattle off a quick list of what we see our readers paying attention to.

Now we’re putting this information front and center and putting readers in charge of deciding what’s hot.

What’s Hot is a constantly-updated list of what’s catching fire with Townhall readers and bloggers. The most popular commentaries, reader blogs, and podcasts are ranked according to popularity, reader comments, and how many readers have forwarded them to friends.

For example, here’s ”What’s Hot” in columns this week:

1. “This Week’s Revelations” by Thomas Sowell

In examining the week that was, Sowell exposes the lapses of judgment that played into the terrorist detainee bill, as well as the United Nations circus starring Chavez and Ahmadinejad.

2. “I did not have sex with that nomad, Osama bin Laden” by Ann Coulter

Surprise, surprise, Ann Coulter made the cut.  This time she’s taking issue with the assertion that Clinton’s Fox News tirade was preplanned.

The glassy-eyed Clinton cultists are insisting their idol's on-air breakdown during a "Fox News Sunday" interview with Chris Wallace was a calculated performance, which is a bit like describing Hurricane Katrina as a "planned demolition." Like an Osama tape, they claim he was sending a signal to Democrats to show them how to treat Republicans. Listen up, Democrats: Let's energize the undecideds by throwing a hissy fit on national television!

3. “Where have all the good girls gone?” By Michelle Malkin
