I was going to leave the Alan Keyes - Barak Obama race alone, at least until Mr. Keyes said something so outrageous that I couldn't hold back. Well, guess what?

Republican Alan Keyes ripped into Democratic rival Barack Obama's views on abortion Monday, calling them "the slaveholder's position," as the U.S. Senate race roared back to life in Illinois. "I would still be picking cotton if the country's moral principles had not been shaped by the Declaration of Independence," Keyes said. He said Obama "has broken and rejected those principles-- he has taken the slaveholder's position."-- Associated Press

This guy is looney tunes. This comment doesn't even make sense. It is a blatant and transparent attempt to stir up trouble. I guess Mr. Keyes was hired to do a job, and those that led him to it are getting the results they want. Of course it will backfire on the GOP miserably, I mean the guy is obviously off his rocker. If Barak can refrain from playing ball in thier court, i.e. negative campaigning, he will do well. If he succumbs to Mr. Keyes low road approach and engages in slanderous behavior, then the republicans will have accomplished their goal of dividing the black vote. I hope black voters in Illinois were paying attention when Al Sharpton responded to the President at the DNC last month. It is apparent that the GOP was.
