WASHINGTON - What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) - sure to inflame public opinion?

Parker: Palmetto State sagas drone on

WASHINGTON - As a South Carolinian, it befalls me to examine the peculiarities afflicting our former governor and now-congressman Mark Sanford, who, contrary to decorum and taste, continues to demand attention.

Krauthammer: Obama again sounds an uncertain trumpet

Goldberg:Obama's ‘optics’ not enough to uphold US honor

"I should have anticipated the optics," President Barack Obama said by way of acknowledging that golfing right after making a statement about the beheading of James Foley looked bad.

Krauthammer: Ukraine is abandoned by Obama's ambivalence

WASHINGTON - At his first press briefing after the beheading of American James Foley, President Barack Obama stunned the assembled when he admitted that he had no strategy in Syria for confronting the Islamic State. Yet it was not nearly the most egregious, or consequential, thing he said.

When government draws the shades

Several recent events in North Georgia involving government transparency - or the lack thereof - prompted friends and colleagues in other parts of the country to ask whether I am living in some 18th century time warp, as they frequently perceive this portion of the country, where absolutists reign with absolute disregard for their subjects.

Goldberg: A Web-fueled foreign legion for losers

On the Internet, you're never really alone. Name any fad, any cause, any hobby or passion - Shaker furniture? Dungeons and Dragons, Bolivian tree frogs? - and you're only a few clicks away from someone who shares your obsession.

Krauthammer: Lowering tax rates would end inversion

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is highly exercised about "inversion," the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the U.S. to benefit from lower tax rates abroad.

Krauthammer: Stopping the worst people on the planet

Goldberg: Islamic State is very definition of ‘evil’

I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaida and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons.

Kathleen Parker: Boomer Kristol calls out his own kind

One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

Charles Krauthammer: Want an Iraq hypothetical? Try this one on

Ramadi falls. The Iraqi army flees. The great 60-nation anti-Islamic State coalition so grandly proclaimed by the Obama administration is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it's the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who's in charge - while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America's alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall.

Jonah Goldberg: Bush stumbling so far on his ‘joyful’ run

By now everyone has had their say about Jeb Bush's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. The consensus is that Bush misheard Megyn Kelly's "knowing what we know now" question about the Iraq war. I'm not convinced.

Ruben Navarrette: Stephanopoulos still linked to Clintons

In 1999, a week after Al Gore claimed that he created the Internet, Bill Clinton appeared at the Gridiron Club's annual dinner. Having recently been stung by a former close adviser who signed a deal with a television network and penned a memoir distancing himself from the 42nd president, Clinton joked that he, too, was an inventor: "I invented George Stephanopoulos."

Charles Krauthammer: Fast track on trade is a win Obama needs

That free trade is advantageous to both sides is the rarest of political propositions - provable, indeed mathematically. David Ricardo did so in 1817. The Law of Comparative Advantage has held up nicely for 198 years.

Jonah Goldberg: Identity politics is always tied to one's views

Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?"

It is nearly axiomatic that presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians, inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Party's base and are, therefore, deemed fair game.
