Did Dave Syverson put him up to it?

Three years ago, Illinois State Sen. Dave Syverson of Rockford played a central role in recruiting right-wing madman Alan Keyes (right) to run as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate against Democrat Barack Obama. (The GOP primary election winner, Jack Ryan, had been forced off the ticket because of a sex scandal.)

Well, of course, Keyes got a comparative handful of votes, and Obama went on to become a political superstar.

Ah, but Keyes has never been one to say die. Now he's running for president. Maybe Syverson will endorse him.
