Will Rick Santorum Be the Next Up?

I confess the title was a tease … I do not know the answer to that question and I may not care as much as I would encourage you to read what he had to say at a forum in Iowa right before Thanksgiving. Since Romney is not officially competing there, it was not a well-covered event. But it was something special, and I write about it in my syndicated column this week. ...READ MORE... More


Thank You, Sarah Palin

Apart from opinions about whether or not she should have thrown her hat into the Republican presidential-primary ring, I firmly believe that Sarah Palin has been a gift to American culture.

Breaking: Sarah Palin joins (almost) every other GOP Presidential hopeful in condemning Obama’s DOMA decision

Almost the entire potential field of GOP candidates for the 2012 presidential nomination – with the lone exception of Governor Mitch Daniels – have issued statements condemning President Obama’s decision last week to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act (passed by a bipartisan Congress and signed into law by President Clinton). The last one to join the pack? Sarah Palin. Ad... More


Palin sends Pope Benedict a Shout Out

Sarah Palin on her Facebook page: I mention in “America By Heart” that National Review is one of my favorite magazines, and I used excerpts of articles by a number of NR writers. Among them is Kathryn Jean Lopez, who always has such wonderful insight into cultural issues, particularly in regard to building a culture of life. I’m honored by her thoughtful review of “America By Heart”... More


So why did Barbara Bush take a jab at Sarah Palin?

In a taped interview to air on Larry King tonight, the former first lady said about Sarah Palin: “I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful — and I think she’s very happy in Alaska — and I hope she’ll stay there.” Zing! Well, seems obvious that Barbara Bush doesn’t think too highly of Sarah Palin. Usually when politicos compliment-then-attack Pal... More
