Goldberg: Was scientist's shirt offensive or just tacky?

The European Space Agency's Rosetta project accomplished one of the most impressive scientific feats in our lifetime. It essentially moved a clunky machine from one speeding bullet onto another, by remote control, from 310 million miles away. It's hoped this achievement will help usher in a new era of space exploration by teaching us how to exploit the raw materials swirling around the solar system. Also, it was really cool.

Parker: Vatican is still fully pro-family

News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers - and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

Krauthammer: Taped confession reveals left’s true view of electorate

It's not exactly the Ems Dispatch (the diplomatic cable Bismarck doctored to provoke the 1870 Franco-Prussian War). But what the just-resurfaced Gruber Confession lacks in world-historical consequence, it makes up for in world-class cynicism.

Goldberg: Democrats’ loss is no win for Hillary Clinton

In the old Soviet Union, Kremlinologists would read the state party newspaper Pravda not so much for the news it contained, but to glean what the commissars wanted readers to believe the commissars were thinking.

Goldberg: Big GOP win indeed was rebuke of president

WASHINGTON - To paraphrase Roger Miller - and, indeed, to reveal my vast store of musical trivia - America swings like a pendulum do.

Goldberg: Narratives are more powerful than ideas

There is an enormous amount of whining these days about our ideological debates. This gets the problem wrong. Ideological debates are fought over ideas, but politics is more often about competing stories, or, as the eggheads call them, "narratives."

Charles Krauthammer: Obama’s Nixon doctrine seeks to anoint Iran as regional power

In December, President Barack Obama said that he wished to see Iran ultimately become a "very successful regional power." His wish - a nightmare for the Western-oriented Arab states - is becoming a reality. Consider:

Kathleen Parker: South Carolina prisoners keep a song in their hearts

BISHOPVILLE, S.C. - Lee Correctional Institution, South Carolina's largest maximum-security prison, gets plenty of bad press - from a riot and a lockdown in February to drone-delivered contraband a few days ago. But within the walls of this all-male complex, something rare and beautiful is also happening.

Jonah Goldberg: Meet the Know-Nothing Democrat of 2016 race

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is thinking about running for president on the Democratic ticket by appealing to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's populist fans. Warren is a very bright former Harvard law professor. So it is interesting that O'Malley thinks the best way to reach out to her fans is to say remarkably stupid things.

Ruben Navarrette: Mrs. Obama, help us be better parents

Michelle Obama is a good mother. When raising her daughters, 13-year-old Sasha and 16-year-old Malia, the first lady means business. She takes the job very seriously. Even when the girls were younger, she didn't pass off her parental duty to nannies or babysitters.

Charles Krauthammer: We’ve given up plenty but gained little with Iran deal

It was but a year and a half ago that Barack Obama endorsed the objective of abolition when he said that Iran's heavily fortified Fordow nuclear facility, its plutonium-producing heavy-water reactor and its advanced centrifuges were all unnecessary for a civilian nuclear program. The logic was clear: Since Iran was claiming to be pursuing an exclusively civilian program, these would have to go.
