NO, COLIN KAEPERNICK IS NO MUHAMMAD ALI

Commentary by Larry Elder

GQ magazine named former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its 2017 “Citizen of the Year.” In doing so, GQ overlooked NFL Houston Texans’ J.J. Watt, who raised some $37 million for hurricane relief.

ALT-LEFT INSANITY: LIBS WANT TO BAN RAISING KIDS, KILL AGING PARENTS

Commentary by Dan Gainor

If Paul McCartney and Wings want to record another album, they should call it, Ban On The Run. It could be the Splinter theme song, appropriate since this is “Ban Week” on that crazy, alt-lefty site.

‘LIBERALS’’ SUDDEN CONCERN ABOUT BILL CLINTON’S BEHAVIOR IS CYNICAL

Commentary by David Harsanyi

A number of notable liberals have recently decided to start taking allegations of sexual assault against former President Bill Clinton seriously. Let’s just say that discarding the Clintons when they’re no longer politically useful in order to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn’t exactly an act of heroism.

Commentary by Josh Israel

Just a few hours after broadcaster Leeann Tweeden accused Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) on Thursday of kissing and groping her without her consent on a 2006 USO tour, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) signaled to his colleagues how the matter should be dealt with: He farmed out the question to the Senate’s Select Committee on Ethics.
