By the way, if you've never seen his Saturday night show on the Fox News Channel (airs at 11:00 p.m. EST) you really owe it to yourself to tune in. Cal covers topics every week that others are either too timid or too dull to touch. Take, for instance, his feature on the equally bold and brilliant Dr. Laura Schlessinger about her book, "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands." (By the way, you can get a personally autographed copy only on WorldNetDaily.com.)
Cal was brave enough to allow Dr. Laura to remind women of the decidedly politically incorrect truth that selfless wives who unconditionally and sacrificially care for and love their husbands will also be the world's happiest wives. Thomas (and WND's Joseph Farah, who has also bravely promoted Dr. Laura's great book) is man enough take on the feminist movement and mantra whenever needed ? which, by the way, is quite often.
It's no wonder that Cal is the most widely published op-ed writer in the world with some 540 newspapers and several online sites, including Townhall.com, carrying his weekly writing wonders. Cal's also got quite a radio following with his commentaries running on some 300 stations nationwide including the influential CBS affiliate, WTOP in Washington, D.C.
Best-selling author. Talented television host. Conquering conservative commentator. Principled political pundit. Macho man. What else could you want in a president?
Alas, I'm afraid we'll never see Cal as a candidate. Why? Because he can't be bought, sold or bartered.
For 30 years, Cal Thomas has used the media to espouse truth, and in so doing, has become the nation's conservative conscience. He continues to eloquently and powerfully sound the clarion call for Americans to abandon our habits of self-indulgence and government dependence and, instead, to embrace the Divinely inspired vision for our country that was provided to our Founding Fathers.
Cal reminds us of basic truths and principles of living that have stood the test of time ? principles like virtue, commitment, hard work, liberty, unconditional love, accountability and faith in God. His commentaries urge all of us to be true to these timeless values in our own lives, and to demand that our elected officials do the same. And thank the Lord, Cal's presence is seemingly everywhere.
Cal Thomas is right ? and right where he needs to be.
