  • Colbert an equal opportunity offender Apr 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the “Late Show,” CBS has waged war on America’s heartland — or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh. Don’t you believe it, Heartlanders.

  • ‘Un-American’ Kochs undeserving as targets Apr 6, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Rush Limbaugh can relax. The popular “demon of the right” has been replaced at least through the midterms by the Koch brothers, Charles and David. Who? Exactly. Though cable and online news junkies know the names, the vast majority of Americans probably have no idea who the Kochs are. They’re about to find out.

  • Lighten up on the first lady Apr 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama.

  • Dershowitz & Starr: A matter of principle Mar 27, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: When it comes to tackling complicated legal issues, one would be hard-pressed to conjure a less likely partnership than Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Baylor University President Ken Starr. Witnessing Dershowitz and Starr discuss and largely agree on religious liberty issues raised by the popularly known Hobby Lobby case was pleasantly jarring.

  • For the pope, it’s primarily about the soul Mar 25, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: This week’s meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama holds great promise in a time of turmoil, though not necessarily in the ways some may hope. In anticipation of the meeting, everyone seems to want a piece of the pope.

  • Being Vladimir Putin Mar 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Although the recent rollout of sanctions on members of Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, viewed as weak, were followed by a Russian market rally, stronger sanctions could be more damaging. Then again, it may be that Putin doesn’t really care. His interest isn’t in today’s markets but in tomorrow’s empire.

  • Noah’s arc of triumph Mar 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: There’s nothing quite so helpful as a fatwa and threats of a Christian boycott to create buzz in advance of new movie. “Noah,” scheduled for its U.S. release on March 28, has become such a target.

  • New SAT don’t care ‘bout no fancy words Mar 12, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: When the going gets tough, well, why not just make the going easier? This seems to be the conclusion of the College Board, which administers the dreaded SAT college entrance exam. Recently announced “improvements” to the test are designed, say board officials, to better gauge what students actually study and learn in high school. Shouldn’t take too long. Thus, the new SAT will take less time and consist of multiple-choice questions as follows: (a) yes; (b) no; (c) maybe; (d) none of the above.

  • Once upon a moonbeam Mar 6, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: All things conservative are not always sane, needless to say. And liberals have moved the country forward in necessary ways. Balance is the key, and it would appear that Jerry Brown has found his center.

  • Obama’s best hope for change Mar 1, 2014 2:38 PM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: President Obama’s new outreach initiative to help at-risk boys of color — “My Brother’s Keeper” — is cause for cheer. It isn’t that we haven’t known for some time that minority boys are in trouble.

  • Make love, not war Feb 26, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: We’ve heard much about the Republican war on women. Exhaustingly. Lately, we’ve also heard about the war on men.

  • Republicans getting to yes Feb 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In essence, Republicans destroyed the Democrats’ sharpest weapon and absconded with their slogan. No more the party of no, the GOP suddenly is the party of “Yes we can!”

  • Once upon a time-ish Feb 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: It is easy these days to imagine that one is living in a fairy tale, albeit a dreary one. In fairy tales, as in Washington, things are true that can’t possibly be — and what is not true can be defended by tilting the facts a certain way and catching the light just so.

  • Breaking: Woman charged as ruthless Feb 12, 2014 2:02 PM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Here it is early 2014 — still almost three years away from a new presidency — but it’s high time to mention that Hillary Clinton was a “ruthless” first lady.

  • Practice what you preach, Mr. President Feb 9, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnnist Kathleen Parker: The answer to this question is above my paygrade, as Obama memorably answered when asked by Pastor Rick Warren when life begins. The more germane question to cases such as Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters is whether the government can accomplish its goal of making free contraception available without burdening religious objectors.

  • Hard knocks of pro football Feb 4, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: President Obama’s imaginary son is back in town and this time he can’t play football. Dad says so. And Mom probably would, too.

  • College’s diminishing returns Jan 30, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: President Obama is correct in wanting to make higher education more affordable and accessible, but Americans would also be correct in wondering just what they’re paying for.

  • Uncle Sugar goes to town Jan 28, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: We know what Mike Huckabee meant. Sort of. Kind of. But, really? Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate, talk-show host and erstwhile Baptist preacher, was trying to demythologize the alleged Republican “war on women” so brilliantly defined by Democrats in 2012.

  • Easy answer to question of mayor’s timing Jan 23, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The question du jour is, why did Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer wait so long to step forward and level her corruption charges at Chris Christie?

  • Leave pot-smoking decision to each adult Jan 19, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Yes, I toked, too. This doesn’t mean anyone else should, and I haven’t in decades, but our debate might have more value if more of us were forthcoming.
