Commentaries

Benjamin Shapiro
Republican sellout: Winners and losers

“Hope everyone out there likes Sandra Day O'Connor, Anthony Kennedy and David Souter, because whoever replaces Justices Rehnquist, Stevens and Ginsburg will likely look more like those three faux-constitutionalists than like Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas.”


Craige McMillan
RINO rampage

“There is something to be said for compromise when one is in the minority – just ask the jubilant Democrats. They have maintained the raised bar for the most important judicial confirmations from the simple majority required in the Constitution to the 60 percent level arbitrarily set in Senate filibuster rules. (And to filibuster, you don't even have to talk anymore.)”


Peggy Noonan
Mr. Narcissus Goes to Washington

“Why did they put on that performance the other day? Yes, it was sheer exuberant egotism; it was the excitement of the TV lights; it was their sly conviction that if they laud themselves they will be appearing to laud the institution; and it was, no doubt, the counsel of their advisers that in the magic medium of television, if you declare you are a ‘hero’ often enough people will come to associate the word ‘hero’ with you. Advisers, you must stop telling them this. Please.”

Coverage: Jawa Report, What Attitude Problem?


Anne Morse
Meeting “Leftovers”

21 faces give lie to a rhetorical point.

“Among the parents was Steve Johnson, a paraplegic who, with his wife Kate, adopted an embryo whom they named Zara — now a little girl in a pink flowered dress and blond curls playing near her father’s wheelchair. Johnson described the years of pain, high medical costs, and limited mobility he’d endured after a bike accident 12 years before. ‘My soul aches for a cure for my paralysis,’ he said — but not at the cost of a child’s life. ‘Would I kill my daughter so I could walk again? Of course not. Then why do we think it is okay to kill someone else’s kid?’ he asked.”


Larry Elder
Time for Rev. Sharpton to apologize

“In 1991, Gavin Cato, a 7-year-old black child, was killed in a Crown Heights (Brooklyn) traffic accident, when a car driven by a Hasidic Jew went out of control. Sharpton turned it into a racial incident, leading 400 protesters – one holding a sign reading, ‘The White Man Is the Devil’ – through Crown Heights' Jewish section. Sharpton called Jews ‘diamond merchants,’ and later said, ‘If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.’ During four nights of rock- and bottle-throwing, a young Talmudic scholar was surrounded by a mob shouting, ‘Kill the Jew!’ and stabbed to death. A hundred others were injured.”


Ann Coulter
What left-wing PBS bias?

“According to Moyers, the reason these right-wing radicals focused on him despite the fan mail he gets — to say nothing of favorable write-ups in the mainstream media — is that he ‘didn't play by the conventional rules of Beltway journalism.’ (That and the giant piece of tinfoil on his head.) ”
