Jesse Walker has an interesting take on the Keyes/CP story. “It’s a small but satisfying victory for two noble though possibly lost causes: the movement to end the occupation of Iraq and the transideological coalition to get Alan Keyes to shut up.”

I think that the first goal will be easier to achieve than the latter. Keyes has to be the most rejected candidate in U.S. history. Yet he still becomes a candidate every four years.
