DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD As predicted, Millenium/Lionsgate's holdover The Expendables 2 finished in first place Friday and this weekend. It's followed by Universal's 2-week-old The Bourne Legacy in second place. New movies didn't perform.

ALAN KEYES When some politicians explain away an ill-conceived remark by saying "I misspoke," their explanation is often taken at face value, especially by people in their own party. So why has the GOP wing of the elitist faction instantly united in an "off-with-his-head" reaction to Todd Akin's use of the word "legitimate" in connection with rape?... (more)

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST Deism had a rapid rise to popularity and an even more rapid fall into oblivion.

CLIFF KINCAID Even before formally receiving the Republican presidential nomination, Mitt Romney began his purge of conservatives from the party by trying to engineer the ouster of Todd Akin as the Republican Senate nominee in Missouri.

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin thinks that, as a scientific matter, Jenni Maas shouldn't exist. Mitt Romney thinks that, as a legal matter, Jenni didn't have the same right to exist as the rest of us do. Many others seem to think her mother should be ashamed that Jenni exists at all... (more)

THOMAS SOWELL Years, and sometimes decades, pass between my visits to movie theaters. But I drove 30 miles to see the movie "2016," based on Dinesh D'Souza's best-selling book "The Roots of Obama's Rage." Where I live is so politically correct that such a movie would not even be mentioned, much less shown... (more)

RICH LOWRY So, as you might have heard, Michael Mann of Climategate infamy is threatening to sue us. Mann is upset -- very, very upset -- with this Mark Steyn Corner post, which had the temerity to call Mann's hockey stick "fraudulent." The Steyn post was mild compared with other things that have been said about the notorious hockey stick, and, in fact, it fell considerably short of an item about Mann published elsewhere that Steyn quoted in his post...

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY When President Bush demanded bailouts of Wall Street and Detroit in late 2008, most Republicans said no. Today in the U.S. House there are only six Republicans who voted yes on the auto bailout and both bank bailout votes. One of those congressmen is Paul Ryan... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Ronald Reagan once said that in politics, if you're explaining, you're losing. Lately the Obama campaign has been spending more time cleaning up its messes than getting out a message. Some of the latest gaffes are just for laughs. Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.'s recent lapses -- forgetting what century he was living in and confusing Virginia with North Carolina -- became instant punch lines for late-night comedians... (more)
