Christopher Buckley Votes for Obama

Political satirist Christopher Buckley was the chief speechwriter of Vice President George H. Bush, and he’ll be quick to emphasize that letter, H. He is also William F. Buckley Jr.’s son. He went to Yale, was a member of Skull and Bones, and was the managing editor of Esquire Magazine in his 20s. In other words, he has every reason to be a stodgy, annoying human like many privileged white dudes turn out to be. I don’t know him personally, so I can’t say that he doesn’t, indeed, suck as a human in his personal life. I am, however, a huge fan of his work as a novelist. I mean, huge. I look forward to reading his books like I look forward to a good glass of wine or a giant portion of dessert. His brand of political satire and humor is so exactly what I need right now during these hyper-politically conscious times. So naturally, when I heard he was having a reading at Barnes and Noble, I stalked him grassroots style with my teeny video camera. This is the resulting video. Read more about him on his Wikipedia page.
