KUHNER: Year of infamy?

Historians will look at 2008 and say it was the year that America ceased to be a great superpower. A war-weary public threw in the towel against Islamic fascism, and embraced President-elect Barack Obama´s policy of appeasement. Groveling in fear of a recession, Americans also overthrew their free-market ideals. This was the year of false hope by an Obama prophet who will only accelerate our demise.

KUHNER: Papal denunciation?

Pope Benedict XVI is being denounced as a homophobic reactionary, whose views on traditional marriage and heterosexual relations will lead to a new wave of violence against gays and lesbians. According to his critics, he is an intolerant bigot who is out of step with the times - and represents the last great bastion of institutionalized anti-homosexual hatred -- the Roman Catholic Church.

KUHNER: Blagogate

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has become the poster child for the rampant corruption endemic in Chicago politics -- commonly known as "the Chicago way." Yet Blagogate is about more than a brazen attempt by the Democratic governor to leverage a U.S. Senate seat in exchange for campaign contributions or a lucrative job for him and his wife. It is about a political culture in which bribery, influence-peddling, cronyism, abuse of power and misuse of public funds are widely practiced. Published December 21, 2008

KUHNER: Will Russia-Ukraine be Europe’s next war?

Europe faces the risk of another major war. In 1939, Nazi Germany's invasion of Poland triggered the Second World War. Today the possible trip wire is not Poland, but Ukraine. And the aggressor will not be Adolf Hitler, but Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Published October 12, 2008

John McCain. They believe the liberal Democrat will restore America's supposedly tarnished image. Published September 14, 2008
