He's that Christopher Buckley?

By now we all know that William F. Buckley's kid, Chris, lost his spot at the National Review (the magazine that his old man founded) over his decision to announce that he'll be voting for Obama next week.

Much has been made of his addition to the list of Obama-cons or whatever exactly the cool kids are calling Republicans who are supporting Obama this fall. But that's not really what I want to talk about, I want to point out that the Christopher Buckley who has drawn the ire of the right over the past week is the same Christopher Buckley who wrote Thank You For Smoking, which while I haven't actually read, was turned into an incredible satirical film of the same name.

That's Awesome!

How'd I finally connect the dots? The Sunday NYT Magazine of course.
