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."

Krauthammer: Barack Obama, our bewildered bystander in chief

Krauthammer: Ebola threat puts civil liberties to the test

WASHINGTON - Unnervingly, the U.S. public health services remain steps behind the Ebola virus. Contact tracing is what we do, Centers for Disease Control Director Tom Frieden assured the nation. It will stop the epidemic "in its tracks."

Goldberg: Is real virus scarier than it is in the movies?

Krauthammer: Allies playing a double game in Mideast war

WASHINGTON - During the 1944 Warsaw uprising, Josef Stalin ordered the advancing Red Army to stop at the outskirts of the city while the Nazis, for 63 days, annihilated the non-Communist Polish partisans. Only then did Stalin take Warsaw.

Goldberg: Obama’s ‘me’ turns to a ‘they’ based on war fortunes

It's funny how President Barack Obama is always talking about "I" and "me" whenever it makes him look good, but suddenly it's "they" and "we" when mistakes are made.

Parker: Political ‘war’ waged over just one issue

WASHINGTON - It has long been accepted by the conventionally wise that the Republican Party is waging a "war on women."

Jonah Goldberg: Is Scott Walker ready for prime time? Jury is out

Any chef will tell you that you need great ingredients to pull off a great meal. Less discussed but just as true: You need to cook the ingredients in the right order.

Kathleen Parker: GOP's attempt to govern is a tragedy in 52 acts

I'm getting that deja vu feeling as House Republicans these past several days have failed to alter the public's perception that they're incapable of governing.

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: 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.

Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime.
