Alan Keyes Contemplates Career Suicide

Il. GOP Reaches Out To Keyes

Alan Keyes is quite the character. A fast talking, smart commenting ultra-conservative commentator who can actually deliver his message without seeming too dogmatic or angry. He's built a successful career as a radio talk show host and has a decent following. Will he throw away his credibility for a likely futile run for the Senate in Illinois?

Alan Keyes lives in Maryland, not Illinois. He was a vocal opponent of Senator Clinton's run for office in New York and I agreed with him whole heartedly. Sentor Clinton is a smart lady, no doubt, but it makes the elephant itchy when someone feels so superior to the millions of citizens in a given state that they have to move in to save them. Keyes is likewise hesitant commenting that "As a matter of principle, I don't think it's a good idea." But he's kept open the possibility of running if he can see a way to reconcile his run with his beliefs.

If you make your career as a talking head, you should say what you mean and mean what you say. Don't do it Alan.
