Sarah Palin on the Akin Fiasco: I’d Back Sarah Steelman in a 3rd Party Bid in Missouri!

Todd Akin, selfish fool

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin was visibly angered when she spoke to Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night.

Sarah continually calls on Akin to get out of the race, and steps up to continue her support of Sarah Steelman as the alternative. If I understand Missouri’s “sore loser” laws correctly, a bid of any sort by Steelman may be impossible, other than Akin stepping down and Steelman being chosen by the state GOP as his replacement. Though the original deadline came and went today, with Akin defiantly saying he won’t quit, there is still a drop dead of August 25, that allows him the opportunity to drop out and be replaced, through court order.

One thing Sarah Palin points out masterfully, by explaining how she stepped down in Alaska for the good of the people and the state. Sarah had her agenda in place, and a competent Lt Governor to continue that agenda. She didn’t want to resign, but it was the only way to advance a positive agenda for Alaska.

Todd Akin is done. This guy has turned the most vulnerable democrat Senate seat into the safest. He must step down, and allow a competent candidate run in his stead. If not, someone, somehow, must mount a 3rd party effort. No other way to play it.

    ” I think it is flat out wierd” Greta~ That is funny, could have said that at the beginning of the conversation~ Need a true conservative not a row the boat character for sure in Missouri~ We need the same thing for Harry Ried’s spot!

    I do not know what’s going to happen next, but it needs to be damn good. As of now, it doesn’t look promising, In fact it’s awfully grim. I heard Sarah Steelman is not allowed to run again, even as a independent. Is this true? It wiil be a lot worse if it is.

      Steelman can’t run as an indie or a write in because of Missouri’s “sore loser laws” The ONLY way she can run is if Akin steps down and the GOP replaces him with her.

      There MAY be another option that folks are looking into, but it’s a stretch. This is a real mess.

      No real good way to resolve without causing problems, and no way this guy can stay.
