Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 128
McCain Aid Claims Palin “Going Rogue” -- Governor Sarah Palin appears to have decided she’s not running for vice president. Instead, she’s running for control of the Republican Party. The way one can tell is by the whispers CNN is reporting from the McCain campaign. One aide has said she’s “going rogue.”

Israelis are Going to the Polls -- When Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert resigned to defend himself against corruption charges, it was pretty certain that new elections would be needed. Kadima leader Tzipi Livni tried to cut a deal with the orthodox Shas party, but the price was too high. Now, it looks like the right will unite and put Benjamin Netanyahu in office, ending any motion toward peace.

G-7 May Halt Yen’s Rise -- The Japanese yen has hit a 13-year high trading at 92.80 to the dollar by late afternoon in Tokyo. Meanwhile, the Nikkei reached a 26-year low. The two are related. A rising yen makes it harder for the Japanese to export, and that’s the basis of their economy. To combat this, the G-7 have considered intervention, but have only made a statement thus far.

Buchanan’s Unnecessary War Challenges Conventional Wisdom -- Pat Buchanan is no stranger to controversy. A former Nixon speech writer, he is also a man with a gift for words. His latest book, Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War is both controversial and readable. Excellently researched, Mr. Buchanan maintains that the British didn’t have to fight the Nazis in World War II.
