Kathleen Parker: We look in the mirror and see ... Donald Trump

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

Surely he's finally gone and done it now. Donald Trump, insulter extraordinaire, was bound to cross a line too far. Two days before Thanksgiving, he made many people feel nostalgic for the merely obnoxious Trump when he mocked a reporter with a physical disability, displaying a level of cruelty and meanness heretofore only suspected.


Kathleen Parker: Crazy is as crazy does

Posted 11/25/2015 in National Columns

One week, Beirut and Paris; the next week, Mali. The nightmare is young. Where next?


Kathleen Parker: Seeing Trump now for exactly who he is

Posted 11/14/2015 in National Columns

Des Moines, Iowa -- You can't drive far in these parts without seeing Ben Carson on a billboard, looking more like a man of the cloth than of the operating room. There's something vaguely beatific in that face and beaming smile. "Run Ben Run!" reads the text on one sign. The moviegoer's mind can't escape the immediate association.


Kathleen Parker: Does anyone really know who Ben Carson is?

Posted 11/12/2015 in National Columns

In the annals of presidential politics, it's hard to recall anyone who has tried so hard to be so ordinary.


Kathleen Parker: Jeb Bush, free at last

Posted 11/7/2015 in National Columns

If the truth sets us free, then Bush family members should be warbling from rooftops. At least one Bush, patriarch George H.W. Bush, has been singing his heart out with author Jon Meacham, whose biography of the 41st president will soon be released.


Kathleen Parker: Jeb Bush doesn't know how to fight

Posted 11/6/2015 in National Columns

Soon after Wednesday night's Republican debate, the phone rang: "Did the fat lady sing?" asked the voice on the other end.


Kathleen Parker: Making sense of our troubled times

Posted 11/4/2015 in National Columns

As Republican presidential candidates debate the debates, roiling and railing against the unfairness of it all, campaigns have been busy rebooting candidates and crafting fresh slogans.


Kathleen Parker: How Jeb Bush should handle Trump's attacks on his brother

Posted 10/24/2015 in National Columns

It might be time for Katie Couric to ask Jeb Bush what he reads. Not this column, obviously, where in May I sagely, if humbly, urged him to hug and then walk away from his brother, to whom he should refer as President George W. Bush.


Kathleen Parker: Clinton cinches the nomination

Posted 10/20/2015 in National Columns

With the latest poll numbers tallied and political pundits having spoken, a consensus has emerged: Hillary Clinton won the first Democratic debate and, barring a Benghazi pinata exploding with revelations, has cinched the nomination.


Kathleen Parker: The Sanders-Trump magical mystery tour

Posted 10/14/2015 in National Columns

Barrels of ink and galaxies of pixels have been sacrificed to solving the mystery of the spectacular rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.


Kathleen Parker: Don't do it, Paul Ryan

Posted 10/10/2015 in National Columns

Volunteers? In the wake of Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) sudden withdrawal from his once-certain ascent to the speakership, several others are considering running for the job.


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

Posted 10/1/2015 in National Columns

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

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?
