crazy talk

Alan Keyes was chosen by the Illinois Republican Party to challenge Barack Obama for the open Senate seat, by accepting he made it the first Senate race in which both the Democratic and Republican candidate are African-Americans.

For a good time in headspinning, listen to this interview of Keyes by NPR's Michele Norris [npr] in which he talks circles around himself: primarily on the topics of how his carpetbagging is fundamentally different from Hillary Clinton's (which he decried1) and how his choice was both about and completely unrelated to his race.

I hope that their debates are televised.

(1) In 2000 Alan Keyes said, "I deeply resent the destruction of federalism represented by Hillary Clinton's willingness to go into a state that she doesn't even live in and pretend to represent people; so I certainly wouldn't imitate it."


Yeah I heard that interview yesterday, I was practically choking on my cibbata! I love how he's spinning himself as this holy crusader against the Barack Attack. How he just has to run in this campaign, so it's different from Hillary because she had the choice. I can't wait to see Keyes get his flip-flopping ass handed to him on a platter.
