It occurred to me today that I have never seen a Senate candidate make as many appearances on national television and radio as Alan Keyes has in the few weeks of his campaign. Keyes said he didn't want to speak at the Republican convention because he was more interested in delivering his message to the people of Illinois. Is that why he did an interview with a Seattle radio station? I'm sure there were a lot of Illinois voters listening to that!
The Illinois Republicans have been duped. Keyes is using his campaign as a way to get more airtime than he could ever manage as an also-ran presidential candidate.
Incidentally, right now I can overhear the bosses in the conference room down the hall yucking it up over how ridiculous Keyes is as a candidate--and these are the sort of guys who normally vote Republican!
