KdLKsY I think this is a real great article.Really looking forward to read more. Keep writing.
Now that Alan Keyes is in the running they don't stand a chance!
He's the only one who doesn't have to pander to the crazies as he is truly one of them in every way.
yes indeed. I am waiting for the next batch of GOP Iowa polls (post-debate) with baited breath to see the Keyes effect.
"To discuss evil in a manner implying neutrality, is to sanction it." AR
I can see equating Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. They are both kind o fringe politicians who have managed to get some level of success (both in congress) but neither of whom has a chance at the presidency. Obviously on the specific issues they are worlds apart, but they exist in the same kind of party space on opposite sides.
I'm having trouble thinking of a democratic equivalent to Alan Keyes. There are some damn nuts democrats (hello, Sharpton, I'm looking at yoooooouuuu....) but none I can think of that are treated nearly as seriously by the left as Keyes is treated by the right. I know, keyes is considered a joke on the right too but the GOP tried to run him as a senator for god's sake. That's a higher position than either Paul or Kucinich, and Keyes is way more insane.
I came. I saw. I posted.
Veni, Vidi, Bitchy.
Keyes was the sacrificial lamb. He was not a serious candidate and GOP did not expect him to win. They simply did not have any candidates.
I think both Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson would be the equivalents of Keyes. And it's not the common race, which is accidental in this case, that makes them similar... Though Sharpton hands down is the worst. Keyes is just a bit crazy, but otherwise he does nothing that is detrimental.
