Krauthammer: Debunking health care myths we all live by

WASHINGTON - Swedish researchers report that antioxidants make cancers worse in mice. It's already known that the antioxidant beta-carotene exacerbates lung cancers in humans. Not exactly what you'd expect given the extravagant - and incessant - claims you hear made about the miraculous effects of antioxidants.

Goldberg: Inequality of power goes beyond dollars

On my wife's side, I have a very large family in Fairbanks, Alaska. Culturally, Fairbanks is a lot further from New York City (where I grew up) or Washington, D.C. (where I live now), than the several thousand miles on the map might suggest.

Krauthammer: How to debunk ‘war on women’ — stick to policy

WASHINGTON - What is it about women that causes leading Republicans to grow clumsy, if not stupid? When even savvy, fluent, attractively populist Mike Huckabee stumbles, you know you've got trouble. Having already thrown away eminently winnable Senate seats in Missouri and Indiana because of moronic talk about rape, the GOP might have learned. You'd think.

Goldberg: Hollywood, liberals are selective with propaganda

The legendary media tycoon William Randolph Hearst believed America needed a strongman and that Franklin D. Roosevelt would fit the bill. He ordered his newspapers to support FDR and the New Deal. At his direction, Hearst's political allies rallied around Roosevelt at the Democratic convention, which some believe sealed the deal for Roosevelt's nomination.

Parker: College’s diminishing returns

WASHINGTON - President Barack 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.

Krauthammer: Stop kicking Canada and decide, already

WASHINGTON - Fixated as we Americans are on Canada's three most attention-getting exports - polar vortexes, Alberta clippers and the antics of Toronto's addled mayor - we've somewhat overlooked a major feature of Canada's current relations with the United States: extreme annoyance.

Navarrette: Documentary on Ariz. law doesn’t tell the whole story

SAN DIEGO - Documentaries are serious business, and a new film for public television about Arizona's regressive immigration law follows that script - for the most part.

Goldberg: A New York state of intolerance

On paper, "liberal intolerance" is something of an oxymoron, like "jumbo shrimp," "loyal opposition" or "conspicuous absence." But what makes oxymorons funny is that they are real things. There are jumbo shrimp. Absences can be conspicuous, opponents can be loyal, and liberals can be staggeringly and myopically intolerant.

Jonah Goldberg: Exhausted liberalism in search of a fresh face

Canaries are not very formidable birds, but they have their uses. For instance, coal miners learned over a century ago that when canaries gag and drop dead at the bottom of the cage, it's a sign that maybe there's something wrong with the air in the mine.

Jonah Goldberg: Hillary still is redefining the Clinton brand

Is Hillary Rodham Clinton a McDonald's Big Mac or a Chipotle burrito bowl? A can of Bud or a bottle of Blue Moon? J.C. Penney or J. Crew?"

Kathleen Parker: Giuliani launches another litmus test for GOP

Republicans seem ceaselessly enamored of litmus tests, but the newest one - Do you believe President Barack Obama loves America? - makes birthers seem witty.

Charles Krauthammer: Reid showed the way to end the filibuster

I've been radicalized. By Harry Reid and Barack Obama. Goodbye moderation and sweet reason. No more clinging to constitutional and procedural restraint. It's time to go nuclear.

Jonah Goldberg: University should show more tolerance for the intolerant

I once asked my late father if he had any experiences with anti-Semitism. There weren't many. Although that was probably in part because of his scoring methodology. The Irish kids who beat up the Jewish kids in his Bronx neighborhood didn't do so because they were anti-Semitic, but because "they had to fight somebody," as my dad put it. Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime.

Kathleen Parker: The riddle of fighting a Middle Age war

There's a very 2001 feel to President Barack Obama's request for authorization to use military force and the nauseating sense that we'll be at war indefinitely.
