All the conservative bits in my political leanings are thanks to powerhouse columnists like David Brooks, George Will and Charles Krauthammer. And whereas Brooks and Will are known for their genteel rhetoric, Krauthammer's arguments carry a measured, fiery anger. I love this guy. When he makes a point it's undeniably intelligent and there's just this wink of spirited condescension. And you'd have to be willfully close-minded to not be persuaded by his reasoning. When Krauthammer enters the conversation it's like the other pundits start to resemble shouting children by comparison.

Things That Matter is Charles Krauthammer's greatest hits album, the 'best of' from his 30+ years of political commentating. Organized by theme rather than by era (e.g. "Passions and Pastimes," "Heaven and Earth," and "Citizen and State"), the individual columns jump back and forth chronologically signaling that what matters to Krauthammer is bigger than the day-to-day news. One moment the context could be the Soviet Union; the next it's 9/11.

A personal observation (or non-observation): I've been following Charles Krauthammer for over 10 years now, and until I read this book I had no idea that he was paralyzed. When I see him on TV he's usually sitting in a newsroom along with everyone else. It says something about this man's character that his contributions to public discourse are demonstrably independent of his physical limitations.
