The Republican debate just became must see TV:
There is one additional Republican presidential candidate who will be on the stage here at the GOP Des Moines Register/Iowa Public Television debate this afternoon: Alan Keyes.
This will be the first major debate this cycle featuring the former presidential candidate and ambassador, who most recently faced off against Barack Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race (even though he actually hails from Maryland). Keyes did participate in the Tavis Smiley-moderated GOP debate in September, which the top Republican candidates skipped.
This is going to be TEH AWESOME. The guy who lost to Obama by 80% or something (and started the whole Crazification Factor) is now going to make the entire GOP field look stupid. I can barely contain my excitement.
