Election '08: Watch Out, Here Comes Alan Keyes

This post, written by Pam Spaulding, originally appeared on Pam's House Blend.

I came back from the Equality Alabama dinner to this hilarious news, and it brought a smile to my face. How loony has the presidential race become for the Republicans? Just when I didn't think it could become more entertaining, we have "father of the year" (for kicking his poor daughter out of the house because she is gay), Alan Keyes.

He's jumping in to "save the party." Oh, sweet Jeebus this is beautiful. I had to go to WingNutDaily for its take.
Keyes told syndicated radio host Janet Parshall he's "unmoved" by the lack of moral courage shown by the other candidates, among whom he sees no standout who articulates the "key kernel of truth that must, with courage, be presented to our people."
