Keyes Gets FrontPage Coverage

FrontPage Magazine has published an attack on Alan Keyes. Their account of Keyes's madcap 2008 presidential campaign and his other political antics is mostly on target, though I'd quibble with a couple of points (Keyes said he would "pray and fast" about his exclusion from 1996 presidential debates, not that he was launching a hunger strike; some Constitution Party leaders did encourage Keyes to run for their party's presidential nomination). FrontPage criticized Keyes from the very beginning of his 2008 campaign, concluding, "Still, Keyes' performance in the debates could have a powerful impact on the presidential nomination - of the Constitution Party." I predicted at the time that even the Constitution Party's nomination would be a tough sell.
