This may be the only way to salvage the seat. Akin is making life very difficult, he hurts the party and the pro-life cause.

What are the specific statutes in as far as getting a third-party candidate on the ballot. It would seem to me that since Akin has until Sept. 25 to drop out and the costs of changing the ballot laid on the party/Akin, then that must mean that the ballot is open for changes until that date. BUT there may have been a deadline for a third-party candidate to have filed with the proper amount of signatures. Any clues out there?

Can you say New York 23?

I don’t mind sacrificing a congressman, but the Senate is too close and too important. Can’t support Sarah on this.

“We’ve got to take back the Senate and Missouri is a must-win state,” Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “The way we do that is to have someone like Sarah Steelman be able to run — even if it’s as a third-party candidate — to be able to run and help us take this back.” Palin endorsed Steelman in the primary, which was regarded as showdown for the privilege of challenging the deeply-unpopular Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.

I saw Sarah Palin on Greta's show Tuesday night. Palin was VERY ticked off about Akin remaining in the race. Her words were terse, and I don't think she smiled at all during the entire interview. Very unusual for a typical Sarah Palin-Greta Van Sustern interview...

This is gotten so out of hand due to all of the people in the media pulling the voter apart. It could have worked out. Now, it's beyond all complexity and getting frustrating. So many people have cast so much on the guy, I don't feel comfortable in doing that to anyone. I think the party could have handled this much better. He just does not believe in abortion- some people are like that (even in rape cases vs. supporting/agreeing that the person decide what to do so he's a hot potato to both sides. The left, I think, would die (as Cher says-suicide) if he were elected!!! He stands for everything that live to fight against. Shame this is happening over stupid comments since he is pro life.

The former Alaska governor reiterated her support for a third-party run when considering how conservatives should respond if Akin does not drop out before the state prints the ballots for the general election.

The former Alaska governor should know that third party candidates help the opposition to win. She needs to set her feminism aside and support Akin to ensure he wins the Senate seat.

Yes let’s throw the conservative under the bus but don’t you dare go third party for the liberal President nominee that was chosen. Romney should be destroyed politically not Akin. Definite twilight zone around here. Third Party against Romney should be shouted from the roof top but of course there are too many liberals around here to have that happen.

I cannot fathom how the GOP, Sarah Palin, the Senator from MA what's his name, that dumb-ass Romney, and seemingly over half the FReepers posting today got their knickers in such a twist over a fellow GOP member who voiced his opinion.

Did anyone happen to notice that he won the primary in his state? And that his constituents seem so support him despite Heaven falling upon his head and the Devil rising up to strike him off the rolls, not to mention Limbaugh getting it wrong for once and at breakneck speed at that.

The only people who have a say in this are the people in his state who voted for him once and now have the chance to do it again. You want to make a difference? Move to Missouri and vote against him.

If you objectively look at what he said, who he is and has steadfastly been over his career, there is no surprise he said what he did. And what did he say? Basically he was against making law affecting everyone in our society for a small number, a very small number it seems, who might be inconvenienced. Yes, inconvenienced, not harmed.

The feminists and their butt-boy supporters and tools on the left can blow it out their a$$ when they object to this choice of words, but that is the way it is. I am so disappointed that so many American women have allowed themselves to be used as tools in a political movement. And Sarah, I had hoped you would ride into Tampa and come out with the nomination... but you just couldn't get away from your Tampon, could you.

I had a dream a few nights back where I told Sarah to "shut up." Now I know why.

Sarah, "SHUT UP!"

“Maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah Steelman — that I could get behind,” she said.

There is a sore loser law in Missouri that prevents defeated primary candidates from running as independents or third party. Palin should have known that.

This “unity at all costs” mentality is getting very tiresome.

Akin is a walking political disaster. The longer he remains in, the more opportunities the left will have to make his poor choice of words and selfish actions reflect poorly on the rest of the GOP by association.

You want damage control? Confine Akin’s problems to Akin and introduce a third-party challenger. Give that challenger support from Romney and the GOP to make sure that people know who the bigwigs support.

If Murkowski can win Alaska, we can win Missouri.

Sarah Palin is beside herself, totally influenced by the GOP-E.

.......I’ve read about 80 of these posts which is the count as I type and to me they nearly all miss the point or what should be the point.

The man, in an interview, used the term “legitimate rape”. Meaning (I guess) that “sometimes” a woman claimed rape when it “really” wasn’t a rape (as defined by statutes) and therefore it (the alledged rape) was not “legitimate”. That a woman “claims” rape SOMETIMES and a jury subsequently and SOMETIMES doesn’t believe her is surely not in dispute here?

So, my impression is that he meant the “legitimate” quip to apply to cases where the issue at hand for a court/jury was a he said/she said situation with NO WAY to discern the REAL truth which of course “sometimes” happens. And, to him, “those babies” were the ones he was seeking to protect from a mother, or potential mother, seeking to destroy a fetus based upon a “perhaps” unprovable and “perhaps” untruthful and perhaps expedient claim by her of “rape”.

I think this is what he said and meant, though my opinions and instincts are not omnipotent. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, I support Sarah and always have and this whole “mess” has gotten so far out of whack that he should probably just go away. Winning the Senate trumps his personal career, ego and feelings. That this “incident” has morphed into a pro-life/pro choice argument reminds me of how 70% of black babies not having a father cannot even be talked about either without morphing into a “your a racist” argument!

IF my analysis is correct, then the man makes a good point even though many will virulently disagree with him! With so much on the line though, it was a dumbass thing to say. But, LOL, I’ve been wrong before and cannot, with certainty, lay claim to WHAT the guy had in his mind.

The democrats have 100% chance of victory if there’s a solid write-in campaign.

Just remember Sarah... a vote for a 3rd party is a vote for Claire McCaskill....

or at least that’s what the socalled conservatives @ FR tell me.
