I love watching Alan Keyes with a mic in his hand. Just in terms of voice and body, his mood-swinging performance style is very entertaining.
And content-wise, Keyes is my kind of sandwich: erudition and eloquence piled high between two slices of crazy.
During the Bush years, the ultraconservative Keyes was a man barely seen or heard... even when running for elected office. Occasionally he cut through on the subject of abortion, where his position is hardline Catholic.
Now, Alan Keyes has found a message that’s bound to get him more attention: Barack Obama is “destroying America.” Obama is planning to usurp the Constitution and install himself as dictator. Seriously.
“If we’re waiting for 2010, waiting for 2012... I believe it will be too late,” Keyes told a gathering of proud Americans in Fort Wayne, Indiana, last Friday. Embedded below is a 9-minute segment of that speech.
I bet there’ll be lots of Alan Keyes rants about President Obama on YouTube in the coming years. Lots and lots. (Hat-tip: Field Negro.)
