    WASHINGTON (AFP) — They're called the Obamacons -- the conservative thinkers who are disgusted with the Republicans and are rallying to Democrat Barack Obama as the nation's economic and diplomatic savior.

    They are joining younger evangelical leaders who see more to their religious mission than slavish devotion to Republican social mores, and fiscal conservatives who reject the war-fueled spending of President George W. Bush.

    "The Bush coalition is dissolving," pollster John Zogby told AFP.

    "We have polling showing one-fifth of conservatives supporting Obama," he said.

    Ummm...yeah.

    Zogby. He's either really good or really bad. He originally said Dole was going to beat Clinton. Then he went in the tank the other way. I trust his polling the least, and I watch them all at RCP.

    But when the hell did Andrew Sullivan become a high priest of conservatism? Seriously--did I die or spend years in space or something?
