I don't want to say Alan Keyes' campaign might be in trouble, but he showed up to a dinner sponsored by the New Trier Township Republican Organization last night... and wasn't given time to speak. Granted, he hadn't been invited to speak in the first place, but this doesn't look good for the man from Maryland. Another sign that bodes ill for his campaign: Barack Obama leads Keyes in the polls by 51 points.
