Remembering the high price of war

In the powerful new movie "The Messenger", Tony Stone (played by Woody Harrelson) and Will Montgomery (played by Ben Foster) are members of the Army's Casualty Notification service. For 107 cringe-inducing minutes we watch them perform the unenviable duty...

Flu flack

Wow, did I set off a fury on my Facebook page last week when I posted my piece on why I'm not getting the swine flu vaccine. One acquaintance asked, "What are you doing?" And then tartly wagged his...

Obama's paralysis on Afghanistan

Afghanistan is a problem that won’t wait. But that is what the Obama administration seems to want the Afghan war to do -- that is, until the president comes up with a new war strategy. As the White House...

Harry Reid: crazy like a fox

Not many people remember this, but the hate crimes bill headed for President Obama's signature this afternoon was supposed to ride there on a rather innocuous piece of tourism legislation earlier this year. Instead, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid...

Is America really becoming more conservative?

If I were a conservative, I would probably tout the new Gallup study showing that conservatives now outnumber moderates, as Bill Kristol did in his column on Tuesday. But I’d be wary of making too much of what is...

Is Obamaball more than a game?

By Adam Ross By now we've heard from just about every writer in Washington on whether Obama unfairly excluded women in his pick-up basketball game. Some have argued that it is unfair for only men to have the extra face...

Another John Kerry 'flip-flop'?

Sen. John Kerry seems to have confused the Washington press corps. Fresh from Afghanistan, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman delivered a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations on Monday that caused The Post to report that he...

Not enough to bend the 'curve'

Peter Orszag, President Obama’s budget director, took me to the woodshed in a blog post yesterday on the Office of Management and Budget Web site. My column, also yesterday, argued that the “public option” for health-care reform may allow...

Men-only POTUSball -- not just another pick-up game

I'm not one of those women who've taken to the streets to denounce the president's penchant for shooting hoops with the guys. But let's not kid ourselves: This isn't just some pick-up game with a bunch of neighborhood buddies;...

The congressional race in upstate New York’s 23rd District continues to create fascinating divisions in the Republican Party, and the reporting over the weekend in the district highlighted two national Republican figures going different ways. This is the fight...
