best political columnist New York 2003 - ERIK ENGQUIST

The endless revelations about the inept double-dealing between the Brooklyn Democratic party and the judiciary have an elephant-in-the-room quality: It's hard to spin a narrative arc out of a problem that's so pervasive. ERIK ENGQUIST of the Courier Life newspaper chain is your Vergil through this Zadie Smithian underworld. He's funny, skeptical, and encyclopedic in his knowledge of the endless feuds, alliances, and backstabbing that pass for politics in the borough of churches.
