  • 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.

  • Hillary and Jill went up the hill May 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: With The New York Times’ sudden dismissal of Executive Editor Jill Abramson and Karl Rove’s suggestion that Hillary Clinton might have brain damage, the curtain opened on a new theater in an old war.

  • Death unto others May 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Rationally, there is no redeeming return on a death warrant. Instead, by condoning state executions, especially under such controlled, calculated circumstances, we are passively complicit in the taking of a defenseless life.

  • Ennui and self-loathing in This Town May 4, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: This is the time when Americans renew their hatred of Washington and Washington wallows in a bittersweet cocktail of self-love and self-loathing.

  • GOP: Choose wisely or reap the whirlwind Apr 27, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker:

  • Putin will continue dancing to his own tune Apr 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: The new “agreement” between Russia, the U.S. and our allies is exactly what the former KGB agent ordered. News: This isn’t to say it’s not a good “prospect” for ending tensions in Ukraine, as President Obama has said. But neither should it surprise anyone that Vladimir Putin is willing to step back from that country — not to ease economic sanctions but to satisfy his own designs.

  • Erasing the race card Apr 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens.

  • 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.
