Christopher Buckley resigns from National Review

Christopher Buckley... the author and son of the conservative mainstay William F. Buckley Jr., said on Tuesday that he has resigned from National Review, the political journal his father founded in 1955. Mr. Buckley said in a telephone interview that he had “been effectively fatwaed by the conservative movement” after endorsing Senator Barack Obama in a blog posting on TheDailyBeast.com. Since then, he said, he has been blanketed with hate e-mail at the blog and at National Review, where he had written a column.
