The Reactionary

Keyes Wants to End Election of Senators
Alan Keyes said Friday he would like to end the system under which the people elect U.S. senators and return to pre-1913 practice in which senators were chosen by state legislatures.

Perhaps Ambassador Keyes will decide to come out in favor of the gold standard next because he just doesn't trust money that isn't backed up by shiny rocks. The Republicans did Obama a real favor by selecting a complete cook to run against him. A local, levelheaded politician would probably would have lost to Barack Obama, but he or she might have been able to get some good jabs in and done something to diminish Obama's star power. Instead they chose Alan Keyes for some reason or another and the consequences of that choice are becoming clear.
