    This would be of little note except that Chris Buckley is no liberal and of course he's the son of the famous late conservative.

    Maybe we need a sticky thread with the title "Which conservatives jumped off the straight talk express today"?

    This is no surprise - C. Buckley didn't vote for George Bush in 2004. Reagan's daughter became a radical, but C. Buckley is a little old to be experiencing youthful rebellion. My dad is a solid democrat, and I've always voted republican. Sons are not their fathers. But since C. Buckley has at least been nominally conservative, his support for Obama, the most leftwing candidate for president forever, is inexplicable and his reasons incoherent.

    They're dropping like flies. But this one is even better than most. Most of the other conservatives jumping off the sinking McCain ship are jumping off because they just can't stand McCain and don't want to be associated with his loss.

    Buckley is actually endorsing Obama!!!!!!! Even some of the top Conservatives are seeing this guy is something special!:)
