February 20th 2008 - Today's Columns:

First let me apologize for my absence the last few days. I've been visiting my brother in sunny California. I'll have less-than-exciting pictures from Berkeley posted shortly.

Lawrence Kudlow : It's Over - Kudlow expresses his Schadenfreude at the demise of the Hillary campaign. I still think it's far too early to dance on her grave. Wisconsin may have been a mighty big nail in her coffin but she will not go quietly. I suspect it will sound more like shrieking, maybe with an occasional cackle. Careers will be ruined, pantsuits will burst, bros will be tazed. Think Sherman's march to the sea, the sacking of Carthage. Mark my words.

Ann Coulter : How to Keep Reagan Out of Office - In her typically subtle and understated style, Coulter lists the ways that campaign finance laws, particularly McCain-Feingold, work to keep good people out of politics and leave the field for turds like McCain.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann : Warning To Superdelegates: Obama Fans Will Keep Score - The title pretty much says it all.

John Stossel : Presidents Can't Manage the Economy - "Politicians who talk about managing the economy ignore the fact that, strictly speaking, there is no economy. There are only people producing, buying and selling goods and services. "

Walter E. Williams : Costs vs. Benefits - This is a subject Williams has written about for years but most people remain painfully ignorant of it.
If we look to benefits only, we'll do darn near anything because there's always a benefit. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that there were 43,443 highway fatalities in 2005. If we had a maximum speed law of
15 mph, the death toll wouldn't be nearly as high, probably not even as high as 500. You say, "Williams, that's a crazy idea!" You're right, but let's not call it crazy; it's more accurate to say: saving some 43,000 lives aren't worth the cost and inconvenience of a 15 mph speed limit.
Michelle Malkin : Michelle Obama's America -- and Mine - Malkin catalogues the numerous reasons to be proud of America, pointing out Michelle Obama's gaffe.

Mark Steyn: Obama the Muzak Messiah of the pseudo-revolution - Steyn on the utter emptyness and, sadly, inevitability of Obama.
