Some have complained that the American Conservative is not entirely representative of the conservative movement. I note that's true. It represents one wing. Interestingly, it was founded partly in a feud with William F. Buckley... who has also defected from supporting George W. Bush. Thanks for pointing out how wide is the spectrum of conservatives who - for various reasons - have come to realise that The Bush administration has very little to do with classic American values, and everyting to do with maniacal, moronic kleptocracy.
So, beyond those I cited earlier, here is just a sampling of other conservatives jumping ship, in an exodus unlike any other that I have seen in American political history:
John Eisenhower re: fiscal irresponsibility.
William F. Buckley re: an irresponsible war based on deceit.
A former special assistant to Ronald Reagan and Heritage Foundation Fellow ponders real conservatism.
And now...Jesse "The Body" Ventura endorses John "The Brain" Kerry.. .
Finally, there is this devastating recent survey. It shows that a majority of Bush supporters simply do not know what their man stands for.
By large majorities, they misunderstand his positions on dozens of issues, showing just how much of this election is (from their perspective) about "culture war" and not about normal disagreements over policy. In contrast, Kerry voters appear to have a fairly accurate impression of his positions on a spectrum of issues. Stunning, given the rhetoric over "waffling".
