Kathleen Parker: Putin has a good time at Obama's expense

Posted 9/14/2013 in National Columns

As I read Vlad's op-ed in the New York Times, a Judy Collins tune kept replaying in my head: "Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?"

Kathleen Parker: Just a little bit of war against Syria

Posted 9/7/2013 in National Columns

Waging a little bit of war is like being a little bit pregnant. History and human experience tell us that neither is possible, yet we seem bent on believing it. Or, should I say, deceiving ourselves.

 

 

Charles Krauthammer: Unless he's serious, vote no

Sen. Bob Corker: "What is it you're seeking?" Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: "I can't answer that, what we're seeking." -- Senate hearing on the use of force in Syria, Sept. 3 We have a problem. The president proposes attacking Syria, and his top military officer cannot tell you the objective. Does the commander in chief know his own objective? Why, yes.

Froma Harrop: China's rich, yearning to breath free

Posted 9/7/2013 in National Columns

Thousands of Chinese are fleeing to the United States. We are not talking about impoverished peasants hiding in cargo containers. We're talking about millionaires flying first class and buying condos in the choicest ZIP codes.

Rheta Johnson: Gone with the Schwinn

Posted 8/31/2013 in National Columns

The Wall Street Journal had one of its trademark front-page features the other day about how slow-bicycling sans spandex and road helmets is making a fast comeback. One man's "Slow Bicycle Movement" Facebook group has 7,300 members, the article said.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Obama's Syrian conundrum

Posted 8/31/2013 in National Columns

The president is up early, already showered and preparing to shave. Wiping steam from the mirror, he grimaces slightly at his image. Obama: Good grief, I look old. So much gray. Mirror: Aw, lighten up, Bo. It makes you look distinguished. You can't wage war without a few streaks of worry showing in your face and hair.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Spending behind your mate's back

Posted 8/31/2013 in National Columns

A little infidelity, a little cheating, is OK in a marriage -- or even protective of it -- if the sneaking is just about money. Note the emphasis on "little."
