  • Olympic coverage sweeps Soviet horrors under the rug

    Hannah Arendt coined the term "the banality of evil" to describe the galling normalcy of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann. Covering his trial in Jerusalem, she described Eichmann as less a cartoonish villain than a dull, remorseless, paper-pushing...
  • Raising the minimum wage is still a big mistake

    Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, as President Barack Obama urged in his State of the Union address last month, is as popular an idea as ever. It's also a worse idea than ever. Obama presented it as a way to help struggling families:...
  • Obama, the shrinking imperialist president

    Of all the time-honored failings for which we criticize sitting presidents -- by "we" I mean pundits, academics and other members of the chattering phylum -- two charges stand out: imperialism and shrinkage. Usually it's one or the other. When the...
  • Liberal students have a funny definition of 'diversity'

    Cancel the philosophy courses, people. Oh, and we're going to be shuttering the political science, religion and pre-law departments too. We'll keep some of the English and history folks on for a while longer, but they should probably keep their résumé...

    WASHINGTON – President Obama welcomed the Dalai Lama to the White House on Friday, casting aside familiar objections from China in favor of a private conversation on human rights with the Tibetan spiritual leader. The meeting was the third White...
  • In the case of My Brother's Keeper, race does -- and should -- matter

    President Obama announced last week a new race-based initiative, My Brother's Keeper. According to the White House, the program will coordinate government agencies and private foundations to help young men and boys of color. "Of color" basically means...
  • Channeling Ronald Reagan in 2016

    It's on! Ostensible allies for the last couple years, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have commenced the battle for the unofficial title of conservative front-runner. That's no surprise, but what is remarkable is their choice of weapons:...
  • Obama deserves share of blame for millennial cynicism

    In case you hadn't heard, young people these days -- aka "the millennials" -- are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they...
  • Republican do-nothing strategy a midterm mistake

    Republicans think they've hit on the perfect strategy to win back the Senate in 2014: Sit back and let it happen. Everywhere they look, things are going their way. President Barack Obama's job approval is in the low 40s. His health-care law is doing a...
