Jay Cost has been publishing for quite a while. I’ve known he was out there, but it was only over the summer that I suddenly realized just how good he is. Today’s “Morning Jay” is a great example of Cost’s political writing: intelligent, temperate, extremely well-informed, lucid writing style, etc. If you’ve been making Cost a part of your regular reading, you’re right to do so. If you haven’t, I suggest you start now. His analyses are an enjoyable and informative way to spend time.
