I’ve been waiting for a well-known conservative third-party candidate to announce a run against McCain in the fall. Someone who can pull some votes away from the moderate Republican candidate and possibly give our guy or gal a boost.

Unfortunately, the closest thing we have so far is an announcement by Alan Keyes that he’s leaving the GOP and thinking about running as a Constitution Party candidate on an anti-immigrant platform.

Keyes made the announcement on Tuesday night in the ‘ballroom’ of Genettiā€™s Best Western Inn in Hazleton, PA.

Supposedly there were about 60 people attending the announcement- and quite a few empty chairs.

Nothing personal, Alan, but this isn’t exactly the big announcement I’ve been hoping for.

  • Keyes is obviously a joke.

    But he still managed to pull in about 56 more crazy people than Carol Mosley Braun did for her announcement speech in 2004.

  • That’s because there isn’t anything else to do in Hazleton, PA except sit around and hate on immigrants.
