Campaign for America's Future:

I'm privileged to be able to call William F. Buckley a friend. Once he even invited me to one of his fortnightly dinner parties for National Review staffers and friends. (I made an ass of myself, spilling Scotch on one of his heirloom rugs.)

Today he gets something off his chest: thanks to the war in Iraq, there are "grounds for wondering whether the Republican party will survive."

I think we're going to see more and more Republicans and conservatives try to disassociate themselves from Bush as we get closer to the election. Don't let them do it. Their sycophantic cheerleading and Swiftboat-like smears of any other voices is exactly what got us in the position we're in.

Can you help us out?
