I think that 2007 was the year that the desperate Alan Keyes fought for the Presidential nomination.
The problem was, being a desperate con man, he fought within three completely different parties for their nomination, now that takes chutzpah!
Yeah. The Republican Party most definitely rejected Alan Keyes, and his message. To the extent of blackballing him and then not counting our votes here in Iowa.
And the Constitution Party was too much in the Ron Paul Republican/Libertarian/paleo-conservative/isolationist/anti-Israel vein.
So, big deal.
