There’s nothing like a little helping of the crazy…

I can’t wait to see the interpretation of this event at the blog of failed former Illinois U.S. Senate hopeful and failed presidential candidate Alan Keyes.

Alan Keyes, a former Presidential candidate was arrested at Notre Dame University for joining a group of anti-abortion protesters who were upset at Barack Obama being invited to speak. Driving the protests was the fact that Notre Dame is a Catholic university. Some devout Roman Catholics feel that Notre Dame should not be honoring an individual who gave critical support to pro abortion legislation while in the Illinois legislature. During his time in the Illinois State Senate, Obama opposed passage of the Born Alive Protection Act, which is intended to protect infants born alive after an abortion attempt. World Net Daily quotes Mr. Keyes as follows.

“I will step foot on the Notre Dame campus to lift up the standard that protects the life of the innocent children of this and every generation,” Keyes said in a statement prior to his arrest. “I will do it all day and every day from now until the Master comes if need be, though it means I shall be housed every day in the prison house of lies and injustice that Obama, Jenkins and their minions now mean to construct for those who will never be still and silent in the face of their mockery of God and justice, their celebration of evil.”

UPDATE: Video of Keyes calling people to “witness” and rise up in protest…

And here’s video of his arrest
