Alan Keyes is running for President, and somebody actually noticed. Andrew Sullivan, of course. According to Sully, Keyes will "help Americans better see what the base of the GOP believes in."
Now I realize that it pleases Sully to believe that the GOP base is a bunch of Christianist Theo-Fascists, but the last time I looked, Alan Keyes had run for President several times before, and failed miserably each time. If his views actually represented the views of the base, then he would win, or at least make a strong showing. Unless Andrew Sullivan wants to define "the base" as "the tiny fraction of the Republican Party which I wish to make seem more important than it is in order to advance my thesis."
