Alan "Is Alan Keyes Making Sense?" has been in the Illinois senate race against media fave Barack Obama for, what, a day, and he's already injected the contest with appeals to the country's founding, abortion, slaveowning, and who knows what else. As this Chicago Sun-Times headline puts it: "Keyes: Obama holds 'slaveholder's' view".
Keyes is already a two-time loser in Senate bids in Maryland and there's no reason to believe his third time will be the charm. But he's definitely going to make the race even more worth watching than when Obama's opponent was square-jawed sex-club regular Jack Ryan.
