Kathleen Parker: It's up to voters to break up the GOP's brat pack

The Republican Party's "Freedom Caucus," which has several less-charitable nicknames on Capitol Hill, is the dog that caught the car.


Kathleen Parker: The nuanced passion of Pope Francis

Posted 9/26/2015 in National Columns

"Oh, so you drank the Kool-Aid," my neighbor superciliously sneered from the stoop he occupies each afternoon to sip wine and critique people's parking skills on our beloved Olive Street.


Kathleen Parker: Carson and Trump's clueless demonization of Muslims

Posted 9/24/2015 in National Columns

In the spirit of charity prompted by Pope Francis's visit to the United States, let's not call them bigots.


Kathleen Parker: Hillary Clinton, you can't manufacture trust

Posted 9/9/2015 in National

It's no longer enough to be a happy warrior; now our candidates must be joyful! Oh, joie.


Kathleen Parker: GOP candidates must go after Trump

Posted 9/2/2015 in National Columns

The Trump riddle continues to compel: How has he managed to successfully execute such a mass deception?


Kathleen Parker: Time to think: August in Washington

Posted 8/15/2015 in National Columns

It is that sane and glorious time when the nation's capital dispenses its human cargo to places of origin and locations of respite. "I don't know why everyone leaves," I remarked to my neighbor. "There's so much great parking." (Don't muddle; it's a joke.) There is, indeed, great parking, as well as less traffic. With the political contingent largely gone, the Hill is as quiet as a morning after and "normal" people are dining out.


Kathleen Parker: Carly Fiorina's stunning debut

Posted 8/8/2015 in National Columns

Not to diminish the importance of the first Republican debate, but it felt like the first in a political survivor series. The question wasn't so much who won the prime-time skirmish but who eliminated himself to make room for Carly Fiorina -- the hands-down winner of the "Happy Hour Debate," as it was dubbed, and maybe of the larger debate as well.


Kathleen Parker: How will the GOP candidates tackle Obamacare on the debate stage?

Posted 8/5/2015 in National Columns

Kathleen Parker: The tipping point on Planned Parenthood

Posted 8/1/2015 in National Columns

It took three videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors and executives discussing the culling and retailing of aborted baby parts, but Hillary Clinton finally managed to say that she found the videos "disturbing."


Kathleen Parker: The coming Alzheimer's crisis in America

Posted 7/31/2015 in National Columns

Current quibbling over what Jeb Bush meant when he said it's time to phase out and replace Medicare -- as opposed to "attacking the seniors," as one woman at a recent event bellowed out -- will soon seem quaint against the realities of our future.


Kathleen Parker: The GOP's clash of ridiculous cliches

Posted 7/30/2015 in National Columns

It is good to be President Barack Obama these days.


Kathleen Parker: Why we can't dismiss Donald Trump

Posted 7/23/2015 in National Columns

Donald Trump can't help himself. Nor can we.


Kathleen Parker: A new day in S.C. as the Confederate battle flag comes down

Posted 7/11/2015 in National Columns

The past may not be past, as William Faulkner put it. But it sure seems to be leaving.


Kathleen Parker: A new day in S.C. as the Confederate battle flag comes down

Posted 7/11/2015 in National Columns

The past may not be past, as William Faulkner put it. But it sure seems to be leaving. As I watched the broadcast of the Confederate battle flag being brought down from its post on the South Carolina statehouse grounds Friday morning, my thoughts went to Gen. Robert E. Lee, who surely would have raised a toast to this new day. Yes, you read correctly.


Kathleen Parker: The age of the professional showoff

Posted 7/8/2015 in National Columns

"So, Mom," he says. "Did you tweet that you were going on 'Meet the Press'?" No. "Did you tweet that you were going on 'Hardball'?" No.


Kathleen Parker: The unexpected rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump

Posted 7/4/2015 in National Columns

Stranger things have happened in American politics, but the sudden surge of Democratic/populist Bernie Sanders and Republican/pompulist Donald Trump puts one in mind of alternate universes. And I don't mean Miss Universes.


Kathleen Parker: Covering the Bushes

Posted 6/30/2015 in National Columns

If anyone should be feeling an overwhelming sense of Groundhog Day this presidential election, c'est moi.


Kathleen Parker: A blueprint for changing the way we talk about race

Posted 6/27/2015 in National Columns

By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa C. Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.


Kathleen Parker: Bill's Clintonesque rebuttal

Posted 6/15/2015 in National Columns

"I don't ever know what people's motives are," said former president Bill Clinton, prompting one to pause and consider just what the definition of "motives" is.


Kathleen Parker: What was the police officer in McKinney thinking?

Posted 6/13/2015 in National Columns

Video imagery doesn't get much worse than a white police officer throwing an African American girl in a bikini to the ground, kneeling on her back as she cries and drawing his gun on other teenagers. What in God's name is wrong with our cops?
