ONE CAN only admire the instincts that drove Mrs. Kenneth Starr to fly to the defense of a husband whose approval ratings rival those of Newt Gingrich and Bob Barr.It's more than some of the wives of Mr. Gingrich and Mr. Barr have done. But to have chosen to stand by her man in a prattling, not to say feline, interview with the Ladies' Home Journal shows poor judgment.Mrs. Starr pointedly tells the Journal that unlike Hillary Clinton, she has had the same hairdo for 20 years and that she'd "rather not be married" to a cheating spouse.

FOR ALL their flag-waving and apple-pie eating, there is something so very un-American about the conservatives running today's Republican Party. Not many people have come out and said this, but the impression grows that they aren't playing in the same ball park as everyone else.This is not the party that brought us George Bush, Bob Dole or even Ronald Reagan. They were all identifiable products of the America we know. They were one of us.Dick Armey, Ken Starr, Tom Delay, Bob Barr. Where the heck did they come from?

A FRIEND OF mine, taking note of the great American sexual landscape -- countless skin magazines, amateur porno videos for sale, naked pictures on the Internet -- figures there must be nude photos of every single person in America, if we look thoroughly enough. I've seen my own. I'm lying there on a rug, in the summer of 1945, and I'm as cute as a button. But I don't think that's what my friend is talking about.She means everybody's got something to hide, including not only Bill Clinton but such congressional swingers as the "youthfully indiscreet" Rep. Henry Hyde (five-year affair with a married woman that destroyed her marriage)

WASHINGTON - The General Services Administration has found that departing members of the Clinton administration did not vandalize the White House during the presidential transition, as unnamed aides to President Bush and other critics had insisted. Responding to a request from Rep. Bob Barr, a Georgia Republican who asked for an investigation, the GSA found that nothing out of the ordinary had occurred. "The condition of the real property was consistent with what we would expect to encounter when tenants vacate office space after an extended occupancy," according to a GSA statement.

WHEN WILL this hero-worship end? Gung-ho admirers of former President Ronald Reagan still want to put his name and image on buildings, monuments and even traffic signs. All to "honor" a living, Republican ex-president. That obsession prompted Republican Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia to try to bully the Washington Metro board into changing signs at National Airport to read "Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport." The Metro board refused. It would cost $400,000. The airport's already named for him, although everyone knows the place as National.

IN GEORGIA last week, voters retired two well-known members of Congress -- one liberal, one conservative, both apparently embarrassing. Both had feasted on the far extremes of American politics. Their decisive rejection by the voters seems part of a national pattern -- one that discourages politics that reward right- or left-wing flamethrowers. Both Democratic Rep. Cynthia A. McKinney and Republican Rep. Bob Barr were adherents of that school of politics in which one says anything at all, confident that a docile constituency would want nothing more than political or racial orthodoxy.

WASHINGTON - Battle lines were drawn yesterday in the debate over the government's counterterrorism powers as an unlikely coalition of liberal civil-rights advocates, conservative libertarians, gun-rights supporters and medical privacy advocates expressed their objections to key parts of the law that expanded those powers after Sept. 11, 2001. Keeping the law intact "will do great and irreparable harm" to the Constitution by allowing the government to investigate people's reading habits, search their homes without notice and pry into their personal lives, argued Bob Barr, a former Republican congressman from Georgia who is leading the coalition.

IT SEEMS to be a rule of thumb that the more battered and bruised Bill Clinton is, the better his fighting form.Or is it a matter of the Republicans being unable to resist undermining their own advantages?As much trouble as Bill Clinton has brought on himself, it's a wonder he is still around. In fact, Republican Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia predicted in January that the president would be out of office in a matter of weeks.That arrogant deadline, which ignored the American people's thoughts, was moved back to the spring, at the time the Chicago Bulls won another pro basketball championship, then to summer as Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa excited the baseball world; now, it is autumn and the New York Yankees have swept the World Series.
