The New Republic turned over its column to David Gratzer yesterday and today Jonathan Cohn responds. All good stuff, even if Jon yet again misses out on laying down the financial consequences of being poor and sick here. And he is a little too nice to David. Not hard because David is really nice, but all the same the positions he espouse are factually challenged and basically don’t pass the rational sniff test.
At least that’s what I thought after he and I had a more than polite agree to disagree conversation, in which I think I played Manchester United and he played Roma! Mind you they tied that first leg, so perhaps Jon is waiting till later in the week to really stick it to David!
