The Boston Globe has a review of Christopher Buckley’s memoir of his parentsand it notes:
Oh boy, William F. Buckley Jr. must be rolling in his Sharon, Conn., grave . . . . His only son, Christopher, came out in a Daily Beast column this past fall with, “Sorry, Dad, I’m Voting for Obama”a defection that led to his readily accepted resignation from the New Republic , the conservative magazine his father started in 1955 and for which dad wrote 5,600 columns.
And what is the difference between the New Republic and National Review , anyway?
