    Keyes-Obama. The Rematch.

    Why would Keyes even waste his money like that? Stupid move.

    Oh, this ought to be fun with one more whacko added to the Republican mix
  4. Hey, in 2004, when Michael Moore brought a mobile mosh pit to NH, Keyes was the only candidate who jumped in from the stage.
    Got points from me for that.

    Alan Keyes, professional tackling dummy.
  6. Of course, disowning his gay daughter in public cost him some points.

    Here's the thing with Keyes: He wants to win and would accept the office if given to him, but for him the message is what matters most. Everyone joked about how badly he'd get killed (and did, matter of fact) by Obama in the senate race, but I'd say the Republicans were actually being somewhat smart about it because that seat was pretty much out of reach for them, so they send in kamakazie Keyes, who rarely pulls punches, to score a few points on the hot name in a losing cause. And now he's back, knowing good as well he's not going to win the nomination or come close, but he'll make the debates a lot more interesting if he's let in.

    In some ways, I think we'd be better off with more politicians who make things interesting, like Keyes, instead of the apathy-inducing bores we typically have. That said, Keyes is batshitcrazy.

    So on the Republican side, does Keyes' entry hurt any particular candidate by pulling the lunatic fringe vote away? If it hurts a candidate, which candidate does it help?

    Heck, I have voted for him twice, and would happily do so again. He bypasses the political BS and actually says what he thinks, even when he knows it will cost him votes.

    Voted for him once, too, in a previous life.
