Andrew Malcolm, a blogger with the LA Times reports that Alan Keyes officially leaves GOP and hardly anyone notices.

AAPP: Keyes announced last week that he was officially leaving the Republican Party. What if you announced that you were leaving the Republican Party and no one cared ? Well that is what is happening with Keyes. No one really cares.

Malcolm writes, Keyes is best known recently as the former Illinois Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate singlehandedly responsible for halting the rise of a Democratic state senator there named Barack Obama. In their fabled statewide 2004 contest, Keyes came within 43 percentage points of tying Obama.
