"Law Professors for McCain" and "Law Professors Against Palin"

In the former camp (via Professor David Bernstein of George Mason), here's a complete list.  As Professor Bernstein notes, no Chicago professors, which does not surprise me.  I know of only one colleague who definitely supports McCain (entirely for tax reasons, as far as I can tell), though I really have no idea of what a quarter or more of my colleagues think about political questions.  (Contrary to pouplar impression, politics just doesn't loom that large in most scholarly issues.)

In the latter camp is David Post (Temple), who writes at the right-wing Volokh blog:  "She's not underqualified because she is inexperienced, she's underqualified because she is a knucklehead."
