Kathleen Parker, meet Christopher Buckley

Both National Review writers have broken from the conservative pack (Parker dissed Palin; Buckley chose Obama) and both are now feeling the wrath of the GOP faithful.

Writes Buckley:

Since my Obama endorsement, Kathleen and I have become BFFs and now trade incoming hate-mails. No one has yet suggested my dear old Mum should have aborted me, but it's pretty darned angry out there in Right Wing Land. One editor at National Review-a friend of 30 years-emailed me that he thought my opinions "cretinous." One thoughtful correspondent, who feels that I have "betrayed"-the b-word has been much used in all this-my father and the conservative movement generally, said he plans to devote the rest of his life to getting people to cancel their subscriptions to National Review.
