Keyes Joins Race for Presidency

You heard it here first (I bet): Alan Keyes, former diplomat, serial campaigner, is seeking the Republican nomination for president.

Keyes made his announcement on some radio program I’d never heard of (Janet Parshall). He’ll be joining the JV Republican candidates–Brownback, Huckabee, Hunter, Paul, Tancredo and John Cox–in a Florida debate on Monday night.

Keyes is fairly described as being a strong social conservative (so you can cross him off my list). He’s outspoken about his pro-life beliefs and equally outspoken about his opposition to homosexuality. His favorite television show, according to Wikipedia, is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. So I guess he has that going for him (it was the best Star Trek).

He’s probably going to have to do more explaining of why he said in 2004 that the descendants of black slaves should not have to pay federal income tax. But I do like his other name for income taxes: “insidious tax slavery.”

The real question in all of this: who the hell is John Cox?
