I mentioned his name at the end of yesterday's post about the anti-Obama lunatic fringe, but I didn't realize that Alan Keyes is actually part of that fringe. Here's the latest, via Free Republic:

Keyes sues to obtain Obama citizenship proof

Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, vice-presidential candidate Wiley S. Drake, and the Chairman of the American Independent Party, Markham Robinson, have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento seeking to bar Secretary of State Debra Bowen from certifying to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the names of Electors, and from transmitting to each presidential Elector a Certificate of Election, until documentary proof is produced and verified showing that Senator Obama is a "natural born" citizen of the United States, and does not hold citizenship of Indonesia, Kenya or Great Britain.

...In response to questions about why the suit was being filed, Ambassador Keyes commented, "I and others are concerned that this issue be properly investigated and decided before Senator Obama takes office. Otherwise there will be a serious doubt as to the legitimacy of his tenure. This doubt would also affect the respect people have for the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. I hope the issue can be quickly clarified so that the new President can take office under no shadow of doubt. This will be good for him and for the nation." ...

I'd love it if Keyes became the public face of anti-Obama crazies. I say Maddow or Olbermann should book him at least once a week and just let him vent. Nothing could be better for Obama's image than having this fruitcake as a highly visible antagonist.

(Oh, and if you were confused about that reference to Obama as a possible citizen of Great Britain, go here and scroll to the answer. No, he's not a U.K. citizen.)


World Net Daily has (a bit) more.
