Son of Buckley Endorses Obama

Son of Buckley is, in fact, also a Buckley. Christopher, to be exact, and pretty much as conservative as his dad.

“It’s a good thing my dear old mum and pup [sic] are no longer alive. They’d cut off my allowance,” Buckley, a columnist for the conservative National Review, wrote on the Web site The Daily Beast Friday.

They’d cut off more than your allowance, you traitor!!!!

“Obama has in him … the potential to be a good, perhaps even great leader. He is, it seems clear enough, what the historical moment seems to be calling for,” Buckley wrote.

    Anyone seen the weather report for Hell today? I understand they’re in for a dose of winter. And the rest of us are going to have to watch for pigshit falling from the sky.
