Kathleen Parker: Has the West got Putin yet?

Posted 4/19/2014 in National Columns

The new "agreement" between Russia, the United States and our allies is exactly what the former KGB agent ordered. This isn't to say it's not a good "prospect" for ending tensions in Ukraine, as President Obama said. But neither should it surprise anyone that Vladimir Putin is willing to step back from that country -- not to ease economic sanctions but to satisfy his own designs. The handwriting was on the palm of Nina Khrushcheva's hand, not that she needs notes.

 

Kathleen Parker: Erasing the race card

Posted 4/16/2014 in National Columns

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe.

 

Parker: America's heartland has nothing to fear from Stephen Colbert

Posted 4/13/2014 in National Columns

In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of its "Late Show," CBS has waged war on America's heartland -- or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

 

Kathleen Parker: Democrats try to make the Koch brothers the new face of the GOP

Posted 4/5/2014 in National Columns

Rush Limbaugh can relax. The popular "demon of the right" has been replaced at least through the midterms by the Koch brothers, Charles and David. Who?

 

Kathleen Parker: Lighten up on the first lady

Posted 3/29/2014 in National Columns

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent "tell-all" by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama's allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed.

 

Kathleen Parker: 'Gov. Moonbeam' finds his center

Posted 3/28/2014 in National Columns

In matters cultural, California has always been the United States' petri dish. Whatever happened in California usually infiltrated the rest of the country.

 

Kathleen Parker: 'Noah,' the movie

Posted 3/26/2014 in National Columns

There's nothing quite so helpful as a fatwa and threats of a Christian boycott to create buzz in advance of new movie.

 

Kathleen Parker: Don't confuse the Pope's meeting with Obama as an endorsement

Posted 3/22/2014 in National Columns

This week's meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama holds great promise in a time of turmoil, though not necessarily in the ways some may hope.

 

Kathleen Parker: Putin the petty clerk

Posted 3/21/2014 in National Columns

"Once an agent, always an agent." This was the terse response of Nina Khrushcheva on New Year's Eve 1999 when her mother commented favorably about the new president, Vladimir Putin, who was then speaking on TV.

 

Kathleen Parker: Two ferns and a president

Posted 3/15/2014 in National Columns

I must need to smoke pot. How else to explain why I wasn't getting President Obama's interview on "Between Two Ferns," the Web show hosted by Zach Galifianakis of "The Hangover" fame.

 

Kathleen Parker: The new SAT don't care 'bout no fancy words

Posted 3/8/2014 in National Columns

When the going gets tough, well, why not just make the going easier? This seems to be the conclusion of the College Board, which administers the dreaded SAT college entrance exam. Recently announced "improvements" to the test are designed, say board officials, to better gauge what students study and learn in high school. Shouldn't take too long.

 

Kathleen Parker: Obama's best hope for change

Posted 3/1/2014 in National Columns

President Obama's new outreach initiative to help at-risk boys of color -- "My Brother's Keeper" -- is cause for cheer. It isn't that we haven't known for some time that minority boys are in trouble. Poor school performance, truancy, delinquency and, ultimately, high incarceration rates cannot be separated from the absence of fathers in many homes. Out-of-wedlock births are at 72 percent in the African American community and 53 percent among Latinos, compared with 29 percent among non-Hispanic whites.

 

Kathleen Parker: Sex after drinking and the war on men

Posted 2/22/2014 in National Columns

We've heard much about the Republican war on women. Exhaustingly. Lately, we've also heard about the war on men. The war on men-on-women-on-men . . . or something, as MSNBC's Alex Wagner described it recently, gained fresh traction with a controversial column by the Wall Street Journal's James Taranto about campus rape.

 

Kathleen Parker: The GOP's flash of brilliance

Posted 2/19/2014 in National Columns

Republicans have excelled at concealing their brilliance in recent years, and Democrats have exulted in their good fortune.

 

Kathleen Parker: The poetry of bad news around Obamacare

Posted 2/15/2014 in National Columns

It is easy these days to imagine that one is living in a fairy tale, albeit a dreary one. In fairy tales, as in Washington, things are true that can't possibly be -- and what is not true can be defended by tilting the facts a certain way and catching the light just so.

 

Kathleen Parker: The shock of Hillary Clinton as 'ruthless'

Posted 2/13/2014 in National Columns

Groundhog Day isn't just a movie. Here it is early 2014 -- still almost three years away from a new presidency -- but it's high time to mention that Hillary Clinton was a "ruthless" first lady.

 

Kathleen Parker: Don't blame Obama

Posted 2/7/2014 in Local Columns

Even I was willing to blame the president, or at least his namesake: Obamacare. What other explanation was there for the fact that it was taking weeks to get a prescription filled, and I was suffering an acute flare-up of my rheumatoid arthritis?

 

Kathleen Parker: In Christie saga, keep calm and gossip on

Posted 2/6/2014 in National Columns

We have officially reached the take-a-step-back moment in the unfolding -- or unraveling -- of the Chris Christie alleged bridge/political retribution/Sandy funds political scandal.

 

Kathleen Parker: The hard knocks of pro football

Posted 2/1/2014 in National Columns

President Obama's imaginary son is back in town, and this time he can't play football. Dad says so. And Mom probably would, too. On this point, we three could smoke a peace pipe.

 

Kathleen Parker: The diminishing returns of a college education

Posted 1/31/2014 in National Columns

President Obama is correct in wanting to make higher education more affordable and accessible, but Americans would also be correct in wondering just what they're paying for.
