Posted: Sep 03, 2007 11:30 AM

Here's what readers were talking about during the week that was -- August 26-September 1, 2007

#10. The return of the eagles
by Michelle Malkin
Earlier this year, I reported on a new, nonpartisan movement that arose to challenge the surrender lobby.

#9. Another bogus report card for US medical care
by John Stossel
In May, the Commonwealth Fund issued its latest comparison of the U.S. medical system with five other wealthy nations' systems: Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and Great Britain. Predictably, the study begins: "Despite having the most costly health system in the world, the United States consistently underperforms."

#8. Immigration: The other mom from Mexico
by Austin Hill
Let me tell you about a mom from Mexico, who came to the U.S. You probably think that you've already heard that story. But I've got one you probably haven't heard yet - - and I'll get to it in a moment.

#7. Who is sicker, Vick or PETA?
by Star Parker
As animal-rights groups get more aggressive in their accusations and demands, the whole scene is getting stranger and stranger. And the closer you look, the more you see the deep conflicts in core values that fracture our society.

#6. Why Senator Craig is right
by Kevin McCullough
Senator Larry Craig is either incoherent or incompetent – or both. His press conference on Tuesday afternoon was exactly the wrong thing to do - on nearly every level. And I for one do not believe that most of his story holds.

#5. Bookless versus clueless
by Debra Saunders
When a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll found, as reported by the Associated Press, that "liberals read more books than conservatives," the president of the Association of American Publishers promptly shoved her foot in her mouth.

#4. Reno 911
by Ann Coulter
Right-wingers like me never trusted Gonzales. But watching Hillary Rodham Clinton literally applaud the announcement of Gonzales' resignation on Monday was more than any human being should have to bear.

#3. The worst GOP field -- or the best
by Michael Medved
If there’s one sentiment that seems to unite desperate Republicans in the run-up to the campaign of 2008 it would seem to be profound discomfort, if not outright disgust, with the current field of Presidential candidates.

#2. Why liberals always protect perverts
by Kevin McCullough
When liberals are given the choice between acting decently or choosing the riches of perversion - liberals prefer perversion. And if protecting the honor, privacy, and even nakedness of vulnerable women and children is juxtaposed to say the slightest possibility that someone's right to practice perversion might be curbed - liberals will come running to the aid of the pervert.

#1. Of Mice and Mormons
by Mike Adams
Once upon a time, there was a man named Darwin West who decided to enroll in the master’s degree program at Purdue University Calumet so he could study Marriage and Family Therapy.
