I Love Jon Chait

How can you not love Jon Chait? We focused a little too narrowly — or rather I focused too narrowly — on taxes, but you have to understand: Chait intimidates me. I love that man. He edited my first article for TNR Online. I believe it was about Mark Warner. And it never ran! He is a mensch. Listen to the diavlog for Chait’s incisive analysis. I was a bit of a shirker. I fear that I did not defend my tribe adequately. But I did construct this vivid and perhaps disturbing image.
