I keep hearing the complaint that the Cheneys said nothing when Alan Keyes insulted their daughter–that somehow they are hypocrites for jumping all over Kerry and not Alan Keyes. My response: Are you serious? The Illinois Senate race is official GOP AWOL territory. Why would they give Keyes more publicity by responding? And even if everyone weren’t just ignoring that race, you don’t need a chart to explain the huge difference between a Senate candidate who has not chance of winning and the Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States, currently in a tie-like race.
