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.
