Commentaries

Joseph Farah
CAIR and terrorism

“At some point, the law of averages and the statistical improbability that this is just some incredible coincidence needs to be addressed by CAIR and the media and political elite who turn to this organization regularly as if it truly represents the diverse voices of Arab-Americans and Muslim-Americans.”

Barbara Simpson
Cut the cat-and-mouse game!

“Mr. Bush reiterates he's concerned about our border security, but apparently he's more concerned that our cooperative and friendly Canadian and Mexican neighbors will be inconvenienced.”

Jon Kyl
Unready For This Attack

“An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the American homeland, said one of the distinguished scientists who testified at the hearing, is one of only a few ways that the United States could be defeated by its enemies -- terrorist or otherwise.”

Dan Gerstein
Party of ‘Joyous Vulgarity’

“One can only imagine how insulting our elitism is to the average mother in the exurbs of Georgia or Colorado who might be uncomfortable with open talk of threesomes on "Friends" at 8 p.m. Well, actually, we don't have to imagine too hard, not after John Kerry openly embraced Hollywood and went on to lose married women voters by a margin of 55% to 44%.”

Suzanne Fields
Playing God on the slippery slope

“In only 12 years, the Third Reich executed theories of eugenics that had circulated with considerable respectability in Europe and the United States.”

John H. Fund
Compassion, not compulsion

“[Bush] is again trying to win passage of a Charitable Giving Act that would, among other things, allow taxpayers to deduct charitable contributions even if they don't itemize and provide incentives for farmers and restaurants to donate excess food.”

Wesley Pruden
Trying to play the Jesus card

“[Dean is] also the governor who, trying to sound like a tent-revival Democrat, boasted that his favorite New Testament book was the Book of Job, which would have amused Job himself, being a nice Jewish boy whose manifold afflictions were set out in the Hebrew Bible.”

NOTE: Job is dated at about the time of Abraham — before there were any Jews. While normally an error easily dismissed as hyperbole, within a criticism of another's error it seems ill-placed. Otherwise it is a great piece.
