  • 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.

  • Unequal incomes is not the real problem here Jan 14, 2014 5:00 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 10:44 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 5:00 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 5:00 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 5:00 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 5:00 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 5:00 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 10:45 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 5:00 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.
