105. My wife calls herself a conservative Republican.
Probably because she comes from a wealthy, "born-again" family, and it must be in the by-laws or something that you call yourself a conservative Republican. She actually disdains politics, and if I had to peg her politically, it would be as a right-leaning moderate Democrat.

She despised Bush and thinks Sarah Palin is a very bad joke, and a poor role model for women.

She opposed the Iraq War, and thought it was a huge mistake.

She opposes the death penalty as 'un-Christian', except in the most extreme cases (mass murder, genocide, etc.)

Her views on gay rights have become steadily more progressive. Curt Hummel is her favorite 'Glee' character, and she has frequently stated that the bullying and harassment he has faced breaks her heart.

She is still steadfastly opposed to abortion, but I know a few Democrats who are as well...
