J. MATT BARBER After the most recent GOP presidential debate, reasonable people can disagree as to who came out on top. It was abundantly clear, however, who was smothered beneath the pile. As Ron Paul waxed naive from his perch in Sioux City, Iowa, on issues ranging from foreign policy to judicial activism, one could almost hear his campaign bus tires deflate... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS The Hamburg Inn in Iowa City has long been a popular stop for presidential candidates, but it probably won't be high on Rep. Michele Bachmann's list anymore.

JOHN STOSSEL President Obama says his health care "reform" will be good for business. Business has learned the truth. Three successful businessmen explained to me how Obamacare is a reason that unemployment stays high. Its length and complexity make businessmen wary of expanding.... (more)

BLOOMBERG NEWS A federal court granted an order sought by the U.S. government blocking enforcement of South Carolina's immigration law.

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Obama led us to believe that he would be a post-racial president who would bring the races together, but it's gotten to where you can't criticize this most leftist administration in American history without someone accusing you of racism... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN The road to gastric hell is paved with first lady Michelle Obama's nanny-state intentions. Don't take my word for it. Schoolkids in Los Angeles have blown the whistle on the East Wing chef-in-chief's healthy-lunch diktats. Get your Pepto-Bismol ready. The taste of government waste is indigestion-inducing... (more)

CHUCK NORRIS Anyone who knows me knows that for my whole life, I've been a huge supporter of our U.S. military personnel, whom I congratulate about their victory in Iraq. But when our president and officials in the U.S. Department of Defense exchange a war abroad for a religious war at home, can't we see that something else is seriously awry in this administration?...

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST The congested and crumbling condition of our surface transportation network is so acute that "almost anything" to bring about short-term improvement "will be better than what we are doing now." Is the gas tax you pay at the pump, at least as it is currently formulated, a failure? Is it as ineffective in highway/roads upkeep as it is politically unpopular?... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH If you were channel surfing last Wednesday night, you might have caught a trifecta of WND-bashing and Farah-faulting. Let's start at the bottom of the media barrel -- Keith Olbermann on Al Gore's Current TV. I'm not just "the worst person in the world," a distinction I earned numerous times on Olbermann's old MSNBC show before he was righteously fired... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN As a rueful Queen Elizabeth once said of a particularly rough year for the royal family, 2011 is "not a year on which" Queen Nancy Pelosi "shall look back with undiluted pleasure." The former House Speaker relinquished her crown -- er, gavel -- in January. It's been an epic downhill ski crash ever since... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, the Iranian Christian cleric facing death for the crime of apostasy against an Islamic faith he never held, has been given a temporary stay of execution.

ROBERT KNIGHT Is it racist to require people to show a photo ID when they vote? You need a photo ID for nearly any meaningful transaction, such as cashing checks, including government checks. If this simple requirement "suppresses" the vote, maybe we need to ask why it's such a great idea to push for universal suffrage for every adult who is merely breathing... (more)
