  • 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,"...

    Americas selective libertarianism [Commentary]
    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's small-screen world view [Commentary]
    Does the president think the world is a TV show? One of the things you learn watching television as a kid is that the hero wins. No matter how dire things look, the star is going to be OK. MacGyver always defuses the bomb with some saltwater taffy...
