Mona Charen - Tue May 22

A 5-year-old child with large dark eyes, full lips and a button nose stares out from the front page of the Washington Post Sunday edition. "Transgender at Five" declares the provocative headline. The child's hair is being cut in a close boy's cut by her father. ... more

Perhaps Mitt Romney played it right when he was meek and contrite in response to the Washington Post's front-page allegations that he bullied a kid half a century ago in high school. ... more

Ken Blackwell - Tue May 15

Last week, the Washington Post produced a front-page story intended to shock readers with the news of Mitt Romney’s leading fellow preppies in cutting the bleach-blond hair of a student at their school. The incident in question took place in 1965, some 47 years ago. ... more

Cal Thomas - Tue Nov 8

The politics of personal destruction is nothing new. It has been around from the beginning of the country when worse things were said about presidents and presidential candidates than have been alleged against Herman Cain. ... more

Rich Galen - Mon Nov 7

On November 6 next year - 52 weeks from tomorrow - those of us who haven't availed ourselves of early voting, absentee voting, mail-in voting or some other form of not standing in line on election day will, in fact, be stepping into a voting booth to vote for President and Congress and for about a third of the population, for U.S. Senator. ... more
