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.
