January 24th 2008 - Today's Columns:

Hugh Hewitt on the next President's SCOTUS appointments - Hugh doesn't seem to think McCain would be very good at it. I concur. Here's an interesting fact: assume the next President serves two terms. By the end of those two terms, 2013, Justice Souter will be 82, Breyer 83, Kennedy and Scalia 84, Ginsburg 87, and Stevens 100.

Emmitt Tyrell with advice to Obama - Everyone seems to love giving tactical advice to his enemies.

Bob Novak on the Republican appointment to the House Appropriations Committee - Almost no one thinks Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona will win that appointment. Why do the Republicans think they can win by acting like Democrats? Given the choice between a Democrat and a Democrat-Lite, why would the voter choose the latter?

Larry Elder on liberal open-mindedness (one of my favorite topics)

Bottom line: Conservatives consider liberals well-intentioned, but
misguided. Liberals consider conservatives not only wrong, but really, really
bad people.

Kyle-Anne Shiver on Hillary and her mentor Saul Alinsky

Dean Barnnett on the influence of talk radio - He makes the point that talk radio is not terribly influential since listeners tend to be high-end news gatherers to begin with.

Mark Krikorian piling on favorite whipping boy John McCain - It seems like everyone but Michael Medved thinks McCain is a douche. Who is voting for him?

Roy Spencer on global warmism - Spencer is a climatologist and renowned global warmism denier. He argues that Republican Presidential candidates should buy into global warmism in order to get elected thereby stopping worse policies that would surely be enacted by a Democrat administration. Now there's an inspiring strategy!
