New Crowther Column
I consider Hal Crowther to be the best political commentator out there today. In fact his only competition to my mind is Matt Taibbi, another guy with some journalistic roots in Buffalo (is that a coincidence?). I give the edge to Crowther because I find him a more elegant writer, whose cultural references run deeper than Taibbi's-- no doubt a function of age as much as anything else. Anyway, you can find Crowther's latest analysis at this link, which I think is pretty close to dead on in summarizing the current presidential campaign.
