Lots of Britons cheered when Chamberlain returned from Munich and announced “peace in our time.” Without the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, what on earth makes Chris Matthews think he would not be among them?

She’s got it dead on here.

Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.
Its not that they think we could persuade them they are wrong, the problem is they think we are the ones who need to understand the terrorists.

Excellent piece, as usual.

She’s right: Hitler was not different. Hannah Arendt’s famous phrase, “the banality of evil,” means just that–evil is all too ordinary and human, and we have to stand up to it and defeat it when we see it.

I’ve rarely agreed with Coulter so completely.

Ann’s column is regularly excellent. The media has turned her into some evil archtype, but people forget her great talent as a writer, comedian, and pundit.
Months before the Huckaboom and the Fredhead lead ballon, she was the first to write a column about how Huckabee was a liberal and how Thompson didn’t stand a chance. Her excellent vocabulary and the hilarious pop culture references she throws into her writing make it a pleasure to read every week.
