Who's left on the right for McCain? William F. Buckley's Son Endorses Obama... AND THEN GETS FIRED!!

Christopher Buckley... ...conservative writer and son of famed conservative, William F. Buckly, recently said that he has known McCain since 1982 and once wrote a speech for him, but that the senator has changed, airing "mean-spirited and pointless" attack ads and -- "What on earth can he have been thinking?" -- picking Sarah Palin as his running mate. While the result was "genuinely saddening" and even "tragic" for the country, Buckley wrote, he had concluded that Obama has a "first-class temperament and a first-class intellect" and could be a great president. In his embrace of Obama, Buckley quoted his father as saying, "You know, I've spent my entire lifetime separating the Right from the kooks."

Christopher was asked to resign from the National Review for saying these things! SO... as of today, George Will, William Kristol, Christopher Buckley, Kathleen Parker, David Brooks, Christopher Hitchens and Matthew Dowd, all very conservative writers and thinkers have all turned on John McCain and Sarah Palin. There's also an entire other list of Republican politicians who've turned on the ticket.
Is John McCain a closet liberal Democrat? Or is he just such an emotionally disturbed, prevaricating opportunist of limited intellectual capacities that no one except the rabid "He's a terrorist!" "He's an Arab!" "Kill him!" crowd is still willing to be associated with him?
