Think of it this way, imagine if it was a different group — say Internet columnists — who had no legal protection from being killed. Sure some states have sort of law, depending on how old the columnist is and how well developed their arguments are but there are no across the board protections.
As conservatives, I think it is imperative of us to say that it is in these rare situations that the federal government must act. That’s because no matter how much we love our columnists, the reality is that over a million people are butchered every year in the U.S. because a federal institution, the Supreme Court, devalued the lives of the unborn.

I’ve come at politics from every direction except running for office myself (and I’d rather have root canal surgery while passing a kidney stone than take that final step). Studied it at college, covered it as a reporter, lobbied legislators when working at a trade association, and was lobbied myself when I worked as an assistant to a congressman. In all those years of close association with politicians, I was continually amazed at how so many members of this species (boobus politicus) could talk themselves into believing they could win an election that everyone else in the lower 48 knew for a dead-bang certainly they had no chance none, zero, zip) in. (Your honor, I’d like to offer in evidence J. Danforth Quayle’s run for the presidency. — Yes, your honor, that’s correct. Of the United States of America. — No sir, I’m not making this up.) Bob Quixote de la Graham is another primo example of the lost-before-it-begins cause. Graham was a popular Florida governor who left for the U.S. Senate years ago and has not been heard of since save for people who watch the Sunday morning yack-yack shows, where there’s been the occasional Bob sighting. No one a five-iron shot outside of Florida knows who he is, and hardly anyone in Florida cares anymore.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
