  • When the pope speaks about women ... Jan 22, 2015 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Forget E.F. Hutton. It’s P.F. (Pope Francis) these days who, when he talks, people listen.

     
  • Hyping Obama’s Paris fail Jan 14, 2015 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: If we can be serious for a moment: The president made an error in judgment by not sending someone with a higher profile than our ambassador to join world leaders Sunday at a solidarity rally in Paris. The White House has admitted the error. This more or less sums up the news of the past two days, but you wouldn’t guess it from the coverage and commentary.

     
  • Al Sharpton and the narrative of bias Jan 8, 2015 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In nearly every high-profile case in recent years that involved a black alleged victim and a white alleged perpetrator, Sharpton has injected himself as arbiter. Where once he was a mere street activist, he is today a disruptive celebrity.

     
  • Could ‘Interview’ give Hollywood a conscience? Dec 31, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: If I were a cartoonist, I’d sketch a chubby imp donned in a diaper, sporting a chia mohawk and munching the last Big Mac on earth, while straddling a nuclear-armed missile that bears a striking resemblance to Dennis Rodman.

     
  • Tale of a firestorm in the courts Dec 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: First there’s the spark, then the conflagration, followed by the litigation and then, surely, the movie. Call it “Moonlight Fire,” and prepare to suspend disbelief.

     
  • Time to get over the litmus test Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: It is probably too soon to declare a feminist reformation, but a few signs here and there give one hope.

     
  • Cosby and the court of public opinion Dec 2, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: There’s no real evidence — no tapes or letters. No rape kits or photographs. One woman once did file charges against Bill Cosby, but that case was settled. Whatever consolation this settlement might have brought to the alleged victim, a settled case doesn’t confirm guilt. Sometimes, especially concerning public figures, cases are settled just to end a nuisance.

     
  • Pope calls for family resurrection Nov 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers — and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis’ broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

     
  • Restoring trust is no easy mandate Nov 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: We know that once trust is gone, it’s very hard to restore. At their core, the midterms were really about restoring trust in government. This, it seems, is the mandate that precedes all others and will require the good faith efforts of both Democrats and Republicans.

     
  • The people and the sensible pendulum Nov 2, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: It would be nice, should Republicans indeed take charge, if they would skip the hubris course and buckle down with their Democratic counterparts to make wise, not goal-prancing, decisions.

     
  • Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness Oct 30, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts — the four-legged variety rather than those running for office. Ballot initiatives aimed at protecting bears and wolves from hounding, trapping and other inhumane hunting practices are up for a vote in two states — Maine and Michigan.

     
  • A little panic might be helpful Oct 20, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Jenkins said Wednesday to MSNBC anchor Jose Diaz-Balart. Indeed. It’s actually terrible news to the other 75 health care workers who treated the forever infamous Thomas Eric Duncan before his death.

     
  • The question unanswered Oct 16, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Too bad U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes didn't seize the opportunity and make memorable the moment when she chastised the media for forgetting the bloodshed by our forebears and, not long ago, our fellow African-American citizens, who suffered and died for the right to cast a ballot without fear of retribution.

     
  • Whose war on women? Oct 2, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Let’s be clear. The war on women is based on just one thing — abortion rights. While it is true that access to abortion has been restricted in several states owing to Republican efforts, it is not true that women as a whole care only or mostly about abortion.

     
  • Cry, you’re on hidden camera Sep 25, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The weird genius of the speeding/parking ticket industry is that we the people enrich the bureaucracies that torment us.

     
  • Mark Sanford’s ongoing saga with himself Sep 18, 2014 11:11 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: As a South Carolinian, it befalls me to examine the peculiarities afflicting our former governor and now-congressman Mark Sanford, who, contrary to decorum and taste, continues to demand attention.

     
  • Cantor’s swan song Jun 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Conventional Wisdom, that self-righteous propagandist, has it that Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s trouncing by an academic, tea-sipping nobody marks the end of the GOP establishment. The Tea Party candidate crushed Cantor, they say. The old-guard Republican Party is toast! It’s over. Finito. And those were the Democrats talking.

     
  • A farewell to friends Jun 10, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: You know how it goes. You lose track of friends and then one day, someone gets in touch to say the friend has left us to our mortal pursuits. Two such messages came recently within the span of a few days.

     
  • Obama’s hard choices Jun 5, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The exchange of five Guantanamo detainees for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has reminded us of three unpleasant facts of life: The United States does negotiate with terrorists; the president will circumvent laws as circumstances require; Republicans and Democrats will be summarily outraged as party affiliations seem to require.

     
  • Warning: Literature happening May 28, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Just when you thought American higher learning couldn’t get any more ridiculous, along come demands for warning labels on provocative works of literature. One never knows when a sentence, phrase or word might trigger some buried memory or traumatic experience.
