  • If 'evil' doesn't apply to Islamic State, what does? [Commentary]

    If 'evil' doesn't apply to Islamic State, what does? [Commentary]
    I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil...
  • Midterm election unlikely to end gridlock in Washington, analysts say

    After a summer of upheaval, from the Middle East to Ferguson, Mo., the country swings into a fall campaign with large stakes but little chance of ending the partisan stalemate that has ground Washington to a virtual halt. If anything, the results of...
  • Jonah Goldberg: If 'evil' doesn't apply to the Islamic State, what does?

    I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaida and other terrorists. Other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil Dewar's,"...
  • Conservatives must better understand recent history of Latin-Americans to win their support

    Half a century ago we saw the spark of powerful ideas that changed the face of America. Some became legislation, such as the War on Poverty. Others became potent cultural trends, like the sexual revolution. Less noticed but no less impactful was the onset...

    ISIS, Ukraine, Joan Rivers: Sunday topics
    The Sunday morning programs will run the gamut from ISIS and Ukraine to Joan Rivers' hospitalization. The lineup: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., talks to NBC's "Meet the Press" at 9 a.m. on WESH-Channel 2. A panel on ISIS brings together Gen....
  • Barry Ritholtz: A conservative case for infrastructure spending

    The other night, I made a rare airport run. Our niece from Chicago is visiting for the long weekend, and rather than send a car, we fought through both U.S. Open and Mets traffic to pick her up at LaGuardia Airport. Regular readers know my views of U.S....
  • Americans are selective libertarians

     Americans are selective libertarians
    There's an old rule in journalism: All you need are three good examples to prove a trend. And by that measure, writer Robert Draper had more than he needed to declare a new "libertarian moment" in American politics. In a New York Times Magazine cover...
  • Obama remains consistent in his indifference to slaughter [Commentary]

    Obama remains consistent in his indifference to slaughter [Commentary]
    In the summer of 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama was asked if he was worried that his proposed withdrawal from Iraq would result in ethnic cleansing or even genocide. He scoffed at the premise. "By that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the ...
  • In Ferguson, a race to be wrong

    The events in Ferguson, Missouri, have launched a familiar spectacle: the race to be wrong first. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American man, was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The Washington Post had more on the story about...
  • Prepare for a long war against the Islamic State

    The hawks (including me) were wrong about a lot, but some got one thing right. It's going to be a long war. In the early days after 9/11 there was a lot of talk about a "clash of civilizations" and a long "existential struggle" facing the West. I once...
  • A fair-minded pundit falls into a right-wing trap on Social Security

    New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait is usually a judicious and perceptive analyst of the intersection between politics and economics. So it's disappointing to see him blindly falling in step with a conservative attack on Social Security. Chait's error is...
