Smerc Endorses Obama

That would be Michael Smerconish, a conservative talk radio host in my home city of Philadelphia:
"John McCain is an honorable man who has served his country well. But he will not get my vote. For the first time since registering as a Republican 28 years ago, I’m voting for a Democrat for president.

"I may have been an appointee in the George H.W. Bush administration, and master of ceremonies for George W. Bush in 2004, but last Saturday I stood amidst the crowd at an Obama event in North Philadelphia," says the Republican.

Smerc is one of the only honorable, intellectual conservatives left (Andrew Sullivan, Christopher Buckley, maybe-kinda-sometimes David Brooks are some others). If you find any others, let me know.
