Parker: Is private speech also free?

WASHINGTON - When my neighbor gleefully reported that Bill Maher had dedicated a searing monologue to me for a column about the Donald Sterling/Cliven Bundy rants, my first thought was: Nah. If I tussled with everybody who tossed a brick through the window, I'd never get the draperies hung.

Krauthammer: How to do the Benghazi hearings right

Navarette: Winners and losers in the Sterling saga

SAN DIEGO - Are we enlightened now? Does anyone believe that Americans are better off now than they were before they heard the peculiar racial musings of Donald T. Sterling, the 80-year-old married billionaire who didn't want his 31-year-old girlfriend flaunting her relationships with African-Americans?

Krauthammer: Real civil war has Dems out to reclaim middle class

Old habits die hard. The media are so enamored of the continuing (and largely contrived) story about the great Republican civil war that they fail to appreciate that the real internecine fight is being waged on the other side of the aisle.

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
