  • Unequal incomes is not the real problem here Jan 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: This may be one of the most brilliant turns of phrase yet. Not one single American, gun to head (figuratively speaking), would say, “I’m for inequality” or “inequality is good.” But is inequality what we’re really talking about?

     
  • A political circus ready to launch Jan 6, 2014 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: If you happen to be one of those who enjoy politics as a blood sport, 2014’s midterm election promises to be a carnival of gore. And that’s just in the Republican Party.

     
  • The symbiotic relationship between columnist, readers Dec 31, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The year-end review required of all columnists inevitably brings us to the mailbag and a few clarifications. For the record, I read my mail but never online comments.

     
  • Dreaming of a penguin Christmas Dec 19, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In case you missed the most pressing issue of the season — Santa’s race — Fox News’ Megyn Kelly reaped a whirlwind when she recently declared that not only is Santa white but so was Jesus.

     
  • Holy suckitude! Dec 15, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: ’Tis the season and Nancy Pelosi has given the hands-down best gift to the American people — her phrase “Embrace the suck.” Miraculous.

     
  • Putting the pope’s words in context Dec 10, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: We have reached a new level of political absurdity when the right is mad at the pope and the left wants to anoint his head with oil.

     
  • A mixed message over food stamps Dec 3, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: If you peruse the news on any given day, the farm bill/food stamp debate produces two general impressions: Republicans are heartless turkey thieves; Democrats are spendthrift welfare caterers. If only neither were a little bit right.

     
  • Talking turkey about Bleak Friday Nov 27, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Thanksgiving is a day of e pluribus unum. In George Washington’s proclamation of 1789, Thanksgiving was designated as a time of duty “to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.” How far we have drifted.

     
  • One of a kind-ness Nov 24, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: I personally love a good simile, which is often a way to inject levity into a column. But lately we’ve seen instances of simile-itis that might have saved readers and viewers some angst, even if writers and pundits were left with less to say.

     
  • Can this health care plan be saved?Nov 19, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In the wake of Obama’s latest tweak, two salient questions have emerged: Can the ACA survive? Can the president even do what he just did, legally?

     
  • Obama’s apology a start, but we deserve better Nov 12, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: When President Obama said he was sorry for the health care mess-up, he performed the mea culpa as well as anyone in recent history. But is he sorry that he intentionally misled people? I must have missed that part.

     
  • A know-it-all’s advice to GOP on HillaryNov 5, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Ms. Know-It-All, the anonymous political advice columnist whose identity remains a popular Georgetown cocktail party guessing game, is also known to live up to her title now and then. Herewith a correspondence worth sharing.

     
  • The White House Comedy Club Oct 30, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: It was a very bad week in governance. The reasons combined suggest an uncomfortable conclusion to the world we purport to lead: The lights are flickering in the city on the hill and our ship of state is foundering.

     
  • The crux of Cruz Oct 20, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Two things are often said in the capital: “A day is a year in politics.” And, “It’s all about 2014.” Combined, the two statements mean that much can happen between now and the midterm elections next year when Republicans hope to hold the House and gain the Senate — and Democrats intend to hold the Senate and recover the House. Each respective goal is equally possible depending on the same single significant determinant: Whether Ted Cruz stops talking.

     
  • The marvelous middle Oct 17, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: This just in from a new Esquire/NBC News study: There are more Americans in the vast middle than on either the left or right. Who didn’t know?

     
  • Enough from the ‘Sonnys’ of Congress Oct 15, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In trying to understand the Republican Party’s internal battles, it helps to think of Michael and Sonny. Corleone, that is.

     
  • Go ‘Noles, not Redskins Oct 10, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: As a fan of tradition, my knee-jerk reaction to the Redskins controversy — should the name be changed out of respect for offended Native Americans? — was, well, knee-jerk. As in, good grief, must we change every word to please every offended group?

     
  • Putting the shutdown in context Oct 3, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: In the hours leading up to and following Tuesday’s government shutdown, conventional spin (wisdom is on permanent leave) was that the Tea Party crazies popularly known as the Insanity Caucus were driving the Republican House, compliments of lead wacko-bird Sen. Ted Cruz, so named by John McCain and subsequently embraced by Cruz. This is partly true.

     
  • Waiting for Obamacare Sep 24, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: News consumers by now have absorbed the message that Republicans are going to defund Obamacare, shut down the government, ruin the economy and starve the poor. This is what Democrats would have you believe and, given the GOP’s recent obstructionist history, it would not be a stretch. However, there is an alternative scenario that bears fair consideration. Not defund, as the House voted to do Friday, but delay.

     
  • Shocker: KGB colonel outmaneuvers community organizer Sep 18, 2013 12:00 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: As I read Vlad’s op-ed in The New York Times, a Judy Collins tune kept replaying in my head: “Isn’t it rich? Isn’t it queer?”The song is “Send in the Clowns” and seems an apt soundtrack for current events
