  • Is There Such a Thing As a Liberal Republican-Lover?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 12, 2012 | 7:00 pm

    I was in New York for most of last week with my family.  We had a great time visiting friends, catching up on the art scene, sampling new restaurants and celebrating Pesach at Sammy’s on the lower east side, to which all I can say is one of the Real Housewives of New York sat at...

  • Answering my readers: Conservatism, Orthodoxy, Lieberman, Rudoren

    By Shmuel Rosner

    February 19, 2012 | 7:48 am

    This occasional feature is just a way for me to respond to what other people write about my work.

    1. Sara Wildman interviewed me in an article about the leftie webzine +972. My quote is accurate, the article is predictably sympathetic to the webzine (The Nation and +972 are both to...

  • ‘Clarity’ or inconsistency? Conservatives debate surging Gingrich

    December 5, 2011 | 12:14 pm

    On the campaign trail, Newt Gingrich has given his fellow Republican presidential candidates a wide berth, often going out of his way to praise them. Instead of attacking his rivals, Gingrich has focused his fire on President Obama.

    The strategy appears to be paying off.

    The former...

    Many reviews already have appeared of “The Undefeated,” the soon-to-be-released documentary about Sarah Palin’s tenure in Alaska.Yet none of them—even in The Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post or The Washington Post—mentions that nearly all of the film’s many pro-Palin media...

  • Religious Right, Left Find Political Guide in Bible

    By David Klinghoffer

    July 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The fast-emerging religious left contrasts sharply on many issues -- from homosexual marriage to socialized medicine -- with its longer-established competitor, the religious right. Yet these two Bible-citing political movements equally have woken up to the realization that there is...

  • Idea of Dumb Bush Voters Lacks Reality

    By Cathy Young

    December 3, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    As the furor over the election dies down, with unseemly whining from sore losers and unseemly gloating from sore winners, certain stereotypes of Bush voters continue to command currency among disgruntled liberals. One of them is that Bush supporters, and conservatives in general,...

  • Gay Marriage: A Real Threat?

    By James D. Besser

    November 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    The intersection of religion and politics became a talk show hit after Nov. 2, when the religious right played a huge, and perhaps pivotal, role in the re-election of President Bush.

    Jews are not of one mind about the new focus on faith in politics, but many in the large...

  • No Local Plans to Quench ‘Passion’

    Jewish leaders are talking -- but also wary of talking too much -- about filmmaker Mel Gibson's controversial religious film, "The Passion of the Christ," opening Feb. 25.

    "My fear would be an overreaction on the part of the Jewish community. It raises, to high prominence, Gibson and...

    When Sandra Caplan, a Jew-by-choice, was dying, her husband promised her that he would work toward a unified conversion process for the Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist movements.

    George Caplan, a veteran community leader, kept his word and the Sandra Caplan Community Bet...

  • The Right’s Secret Weapon: Red Ink

    By James D. Besser

    March 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Students of political irony are having a banner year. A Republican president who campaigned against "nation building" is on the brink of a war intended to rebuild not just a nation -- Iraq -- but an entire region. And conservatives, long the archenemies of deficit spending, are...

  • Prager’s Tactics Are Lacking

    By Michael Tolkin

    October 10, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Dennis Prager uses half of what I said to the L.A. Times and gives the impression that I am one of those awful leftists who are "either morally confused, immoral or lack courage." Here is the complete quote, which shows that I was describing a dilemma, not my political position:...
