  •  So no 'Arkansas for Blanche' party any time soon? (4+ / 0-)

    I am assuming from this then that Blanche can't simply get a few signatures and start her own party in time for november election.

      Not unless she can get Ark. election law thrown out, and I'll bet she can't. Wal-Mart probably could, but they'll back the Repub anyway.

      •  theoretically possible though (0+ / 0-)

        if i read your footnote correctly, she could still form the arkansas for blanche party, campaign and do ads and the like, then kick off a petition drive 6 weeks before the general.

        what's the deadline for the petition signatures?

        granted, it would be very difficult, but not impossible. lieberman's CT for lieberman party also got on the ballot by petition drive in august, but i think the numbers were lower.

        51 senators is a majority.
        no more excuses.
