I have been trying to post on Alan Keyes for like, what, a fucking week? Wordpress and others (and you know who you are!) have conspired against me. But finally, I can tell you that, yes, Alan Keyes is still bringing teh crazy.
Last week the Constitution Party decided that even for them, Herr Dr. Keyes was too nutty:
The pick [of radio talk-show host Chuck Baldwin] was seen as something of an upset, given Keyes’ higher national profile. Known for his fiery stem-winders, Keyes is a two-time GOP presidential candidate who abandoned the Republican Party this month to join the Constitution Party, which believes in limited government and is committed to ending abortion and bringing American troops home from Iraq.
But Baldwin’s roots in the Constitution Party run deeper. He was the party’s 2004 vice-presidential candidate, and party members said his stands were more in line with party thinking.
But did this stop Alan Keyes from running? Not in the least - he’s got a new campaign website and even a MySpace page. He’s the Hillary Clinton of wingnuts. And he’ll doubtless suck a few votes away from the Psychogeezer™. He won’t have as much of an effect as Bob Barr or Ron Paul, but it’s all good. Run Alan run!
