ANN COULTER — In response to my column last week about hormesis -- the theory that some radiation can be beneficial to humans -- liberals reacted with their usual open-minded examination of the facts.

J. MATT BARBER — Irony is defined as "the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning." The term doublespeak means "evasive, ambiguous language that is intended to deceive or confuse." There is perhaps no greater example of ironic doublespeak than inclusion of the phrase "civil liberties" within the inapt designation: "American Civil Liberties Union"... (more)

PAT BUCHANAN — "Who would be free themselves must strike the blow." So wrote the poet Byron, who would himself die just days after landing in Greece to join the war for independence from the Turks.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER — President Obama is proud of how he put together the Libyan operation. A model of international cooperation. All the necessary paperwork. Arab League backing. A Security Council resolution. (Everything but a resolution from the Congress of the United States, a minor inconvenience for a citizen of the world.) It's war as designed by an Ivy League professor... (more)

SEN. MIKE ENZI — How many federal bureaucrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? None if that bulb is a traditional incandescent bulb. That's because back in 2007 my colleagues passed a law that effectively bans traditional incandescent light bulbs starting in 2012... (more)

GEORGE WILL — The missile strikes that inaugurated America's latest attempt at regime change were launched 29 days before the 50th anniversary of another such - the Bay of Pigs of April 17, 1961.

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — So it's really no big deal when a guy is arrested for slugging another guy with a beer bottle, right? In this case, wrong!

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON — Gas is well over $4 a gallon in most places in California -- and soaring elsewhere as well. But are such high energy prices good or bad? That should be a stupid question. Yet it is not, when the Obama administration has stopped new domestic offshore oil exploration in many American waters, curbed oil leases in the West, and keeps oil-rich areas of Alaska exempt from drilling...
