Michael 'Snoop Dogg' Steele

You know, the more I hear Republican National Committee Chairman Michael "That's How We Roll" Steele pepper his pronouncements with hip-hop parlance, the more I'm reminded of those ill-fated commercials for Chrysler starring the unlikely duo of former Chrysler...

'Hoax' Against Hate Crimes Bill

Earlier today, I called Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), hoping to get her statement of contrition for her stunningly ignorant comments about the murder of Matthew Shepard. While arguing against passage of the hate crimes bill yesterday, Foxx said: I...

From Obama, Presidential Prose

Mario Cuomo once observed that politicians campaign in poetry but govern in prose. That truth was on display at tonight’s prime-time press conference, in which a president renowned for his soaring rhetoric found himself instead mired in the prosaic....

So What's Next on Torture?

President Obama's words on torture at his "100 days" news conference were, to my ears, sharp and unequivocal. What he didn't tell us is what happens next. He said bluntly, without leaving any wiggle room, that waterboarding is torture....

New Foundations and Obama's Style

A few things became clear quickly at President Obama's news conference tonight. First, the administration really is pushing hard to get his program labeled the "New Foundation." Obama used that magical phrase right off in his opening statement. It's...

Hypocrisy on Obama and Notre Dame?

I've received a number of emails questioning why some pro-life Catholics oppose President Obama's invitation to give the commencement address and receive an honorary degree at Notre Dame when they didn't oppose George W. Bush's 2001 speech there, given...

Good News for Republicans!

On May 24, 2001, I wrote an op-ed for The Post in the wake of Vermont Sen. James Jeffords’s party switch. I argued that the switch, which cost Republicans control of the Senate, could well turn out to be...

Arlen Specter's Switch and GOP's Identity Crisis

The Republican Party's identity crisis just got worse with Sen. Arlen Specter's announcement that he is leaving the GOP to join the Democrats. I know, I know. Specter's move is about his own political survival. He was facing a...
