This afternoon, Keyes released the following statement, clarifying his position:

The statement does nothing to clarify anything -- he's still pandering to the Soul Patrol to get their vote. He has completely reversed his 2002 position, which, mind you is both in print and on his MSNBC television show.

I have lost quite a bit of respect for Keyes today.

Right now I'm listening to something infinately more entertaining and that's McGruder and Tavis Smiley getting shutdown by Bill Cosby.

No, he's "pandering to the Soul Patrol to get their" attention.

Gee it's a common rhetorical trick.

If I wasn't in the middle of quitting smoking I know what it's called would come to me LOL!

Me too. I hope this doesn't turn out to be when Alan jumps the shark. Don't tax them for one or two generations he says. Come on Alan, the blacks didn't pay any income tax for about 50 years after Lincoln freed them. OK, so nobody else did either, but I bet the per capita black taxes of all types were pretty dang small those first 2 generations. There wasn't much there that could be taxed. I do like the twist of awarding reparations for the Great Society, but only as satire. To take it seriously is undeserved. The blacks were probably the group that had the highest support for the Great Society. You don't award Purple Hearts for self-inflicted wounds and you don't award reparations for self-inflicted policies.

Alan, Alan, Alan. You need to think before you speak. Even your opponent hasn't come out in favor of reparations.
