Tired of the real campaign news (such as the predictable but finally confirmed Fred suicide watch), I wondered how Alan Keyes' potemkin bid for the White House was doing. I will say this: He has some interesting priorities. On Wednesday morning:
He was the last man to enter the 2008 presidential race and now with one day until the caucus, Alan Keyes continues his campaign stops in Iowa. Tuesday, Keyes toured through northwest Iowa.
Keyes' campaign recently asked the committee that set the Feb. 19 [Wisconsin] ballot to reconvene so it could include Keyes' name on the ballot. But members of the committee—made up of legislative leaders and officials from the state Democratic and Republican parties—have declined the request.
In a Dec. 26 letter to members of the committee, Keyes campaign attorney James N. Clymer said if Keyes weren't put on the ballot, the "campaign will have no alternative but to initiate legal action against the individuals on the committee."
If he actually did this, he will have filed more lawsuits than attended campaign events.
