Keyes is a Joke

Alan "Natural Law" Keyes has been drafted by the Republicans to run against Barack Obama for the senate seat in Illinois (after Jack Ryan was forced to drop out because of a silly "sex scandal"). Now, Keyes lives in Maryland, not Illinois, so this quote of his from 2000 is quite interesting (thanks, Atrios):

"I deeply resent the destruction of federalism represented by Hillary Clinton's willingness to go into a state she doesn't even live in and pretend to represent people there. So I certainly wouldn't imitate it."


These are typical Keyes rants (thanks, Josh at TPM): tort reform is necessary to bring America back into compliance with natural law, drug reimportation is incompatible with the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence and gun control has been outlawed by God.

Fortunately, this nutcase is a proven loser (2 times senate, 2 times president).
