"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Keyes helping Bush?
Alan Keyes has been getting a lot of flack from conservatives for his admittedly nutty behavior during his run for Senate in Illinois. He's said some off-kilter things, and he's obviously going to get killed in November. But...
Check out the latest presidential poll from Illinois. Whatever else Keyes is, he's very persuasive. I theorize that, along with Kerry's obvious implosion, Keyes is--while not persuading anyone to vote for him over Obama, because he's coming off as a nutjob--persuading people to vote for Bush over Kerry.
So, I remain the Keyes fan that I have been since 1996. Sure he's a kook--but he's really very good at what he does, and he could just help surprise a lot of Illinois Dems in November.
