If you don't know anything about Alan Keyes here are the pertinent facts: he has run for president three times (unsuccessfully, obviously), he has run for the US Senate three times (unsuccessfully, although probably not as obviously), in 2005 his daughter Maya came out as a lesbian and said this to a D.C. news publication in response to rumors that her father had cut her off financially and that she was now homeless as a result:
"It doesn't make much sense for him to be [financially] supporting someone who is working against what he believes in...Technically speaking, I don't have anywhere to go. I have lots of friends and I could probably go crash with them. I'm going back to Chicago and I'm not really sure what I'm going to do when I get there. I have no place to live there, but there have been people offering to help me find housing, offering to let me stay with them for a little while until I figure things out. I don't have an official place to live but I really doubt that I will be spending much time wandering the sidewalks."He's also one of about three black men who are still members of the Republican party (the other two being Michael Steele and Larry Elder) and he lost an Illinois Senate election to Barack Obama, so of course we should believe everything the guy says, no matter how shithouse crazy it is, right?:
Decide for yourselves:
Yes, this is the face of the modern Republican party. It would be a bit funnier if it weren't so tragic, huh?
