I thought we might have closed the door on further entries in the contest to see which Illinois Republican luminary could deliver the most anemic or feeble endorsement of Mr. Keyes.
But for longtime Illinois Governor Jim Edgar let's allow one more nominee.
According to the Chicago Tribune
, Edgar told
the GOP State Central Committee: "I think Alan Keyes, he'll be fun. He's intelligent, he's articulate and he's entertaining, which is important for the media, because that's the business they're in."Late Update
: My friend Rick Klau has put a list of nominations
for the best feeble endorsement up on his website. My favorite is the one he found from Sen. Dale Risinger, R-Peoria: âWeâre going to support Alan Keyes and hope for the best.â
