Morning Jolt - The Indispensable Newsletter

Mr. Indispensable
There are many good newsletters out there [like Jonah Goldberg's G-File], but in my opinion the number one political newsletter is Jim Geraghty's "Morning Jolt."  Jim Geraghty posts articles on National Review Online's "Campaign Spot".   Jim Geraghty is a journalist deluxe in evaluating the political landscape in America and in interpreting polls.  He is the man that Hugh Hewitt brings on his radio show to evaluate a race or how a particular campaign is going.  In fact, Hugh Hewitt has given him the moniker of  "Mr. Indispensable."

When you get Jim Geraghty's newsletter "Morning Jolt" in your e-mail every morning, it is almost like receiving his personal blog in your e-mail.   He gives detailed analysis of the major political events of the day [or day before].  Also, he usually has an entertaining, eye catching title [a la Drudge Report].    For example here is today's first story from his newsletter with the first couple of sentences:

Let Me Summarize the NBC News Poll in One Word for Democrats: DOOM

To receive Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt in your e-mail every day click here and look on the right side for the tab that says: Receive Your Free NRO newsletters.  Then when you submit your e-mail you will get to choose Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt and any other you would wish to recive.   I would highly recommend it.  In fact, I would recommend selecting all of the newsletters from National Review Online as they are all good.
