Roseanne Barr: ruining the Green Party’s chances in 2012
Only the most infantile, selfish politicians go on to petulant third-party runs after losing their party’s primary election. So it should come as no surprise that:
Comedian and 1990s sitcom star Roseanne Barr will be among a dozen presidential candidates on the ballot in Florida in the November 6 election…
The Emmy Award-winning Barr, who turns 60 next month, announced her presidential candidacy in August 2011 after losing the race for the Green Party’s presidential nomination.
Barr’s California-based Peace and Freedom Party and a number of other small political organizations are running candidates against Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the swing state.
…The Peace and Freedom Party has a platform calling for the legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage and Barr’s running mate is Cindy Sheehan, the anti-war activist who grabbed national attention by staging a long-running protest outside of former President George W. Bush’s Texas ranch.
That they’re splitting the Green Party vote doesn’t seem to matter to Barr and Sheehan. I wonder why they hate the Earth so much?
