Leonard Pitts: I've got your back, Ashley Judd!

Posted 3/24/2015 in National Columns

Kathleen Parker: Dear Starbucks: Can we not talk about race?

Posted 3/21/2015 in National Columns

I'm standing in the Starbucks line behind 10 other sleepyheads, waiting to order my tall skinny cappuccino, otherwise known as a shot of coffee described as I wish to be. Absolutely no one is talking about race.

 

Froma Harrop: Clinton and gender politics no simple matter

Posted 3/21/2015 in National Columns

Carly Fiorina has evidently hired herself as hit woman going after Hillary Clinton and her likely run for president. Fiorina is former chief of Hewlett-Packard and onetime Republican candidate for Senate from California. The thinking is that as a formidable woman, she can go after Clinton without being called a sexist male.

 

Patrick Buchanan: What would Ike do?

Posted 3/20/2015 in National Columns

Susan Estrich: Money: the first primary

Posted 3/19/2015 in National Columns

Money is often called the first primary, because there's nothing else out there to be officially judged by the FEC reports.

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: Will the GOP kick it away?

Posted 3/18/2015 in National Columns

Patrick Buchanan: Is the European Union dying?

Posted 3/16/2015 in National Columns

As the European Coal and Steel Community of Jean Monnet evolved into the EU, we were told a "United States of Europe" was at hand, modeled on the USA.

 

Kathleen Parker: Tom Cotton's grandstand play

Posted 3/14/2015 in National Columns

With a few tweaks to Scripture, herewith today's relevant verse: What therefore President Obama hath joined together, let Republicans put asunder.

 

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: No tail-dragging allowed

Posted 3/14/2015 in National Columns

Leonard Pitts: Like and dislike in these polarizing times

Posted 3/14/2015 in National Columns

This is for Gigi, who can't figure out why I don't like Bill Maher.

 

 

Michael Gerson: Viewing Ferguson from Selma

Posted 3/13/2015 in National Columns
