Will Bush Be the Last Hawk Standing?

Last week, George W. Bush invited nine conservative pundits to the White House for what amounted to a pep talk, with the president providing all the pep.  Many of the columnists have described his demeanor as incongruously sunny, but some of the accounts are downright scary. Could the whole world be out of touch, or is it just him?

Still Queasy After All These Years

Let’s hope that Michael Chertoff’s “gut feeling” that something bad will happen this summer is just the result of something he ate.  But what has the homeland security czar been doing, besides monitoring his belly?

Six Years and Counting

Why is it that since 9/11 the U.S. hasn’t seen terrorist bombing attempts such as the ones that fizzled last week in Britain?  The reason may rest in America’s genius for manufacturing possibility.

Unmaking History

It’s time for those of us who are old enough to remember when the U.S. Supreme Court was a major force for racial integration and justice to stop living in the past. We need to realize that, for the foreseeable future, any progress our increasingly diverse country makes toward fairness and equality will come in spite of the nation’s highest court, not because of it.

Cheney the Survivor

Before the subject of whether George W. Bush should be impeached is given the slightest consideration, consider three scary words that will end any such discussion: President Dick Cheney.

The Tale of Sir Salman and the Bard of Espionage

Back when the renowned author was in hiding because of a death threat from the Ayatollah Khomeini, he felt that John le Carre was no help to his cause.  “The Satanic Verses” had sparked a spat between two literary lions.

EUGENE ROBINSON uses his twice-weekly column in The Washington Post to pick American society apart and then put it back together again in unexpected, and revelatory, new ways. To do this job of demolition and reassembly, Robinson relies on a large and varied tool kit: energy, curiosity, elegant writing, and the wide-ranging experience of a life that took him from childhood in the segregated South—on what they called the “colored” side of the tracks—to the heights of American journalism.

In a 25-year career at The Washington Post, Robinson has been city hall reporter, city editor, foreign correspondent in Buenos Aires and London, foreign editor, and assistant managing editor in charge of the paper’s award-winning Style section. He has written books about race in Brazil and music in Cuba, covered a heavyweight championship fight, witnessed riots in Philadelphia and a murder trial in the deepest Amazon, sat with presidents and dictators and the Queen of England, thrusted and parried with hair-proud politicians from sea to shining sea, handicapped all three editions of “American Idol,” acquired fluent Spanish and passable Portuguese, and even reached an uneasy truce with the noxious hip-hop lyrics that fester in his teenage son’s innocent-looking iPod.

Eugene Robinson won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. Judges complimented Robinson’s “eloquent columns on the 2008 presidential campaign that focus on the election of the first African-American president, showcasing graceful writing and grasp of the larger historic picture.
