Great news: Roseanne Barr running for president
Posted on 02/03/2012 7:19:48 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Try to guess which party’s nomination she’s running for. Hint: She’s a Truther, her core issue is legalizing weed, and she wants to guillotine rich bankers.
No, not the Democratic Party. They don’t support legalizing weed.
“The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1% — who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said…
Barr has submitted paperwork to the Green Party for her candidacy. The party’s presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July…
“I will barnstorm American living rooms,” she said in a candidate questionnaire submitted to the Green Party. “Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.”
The bad news: You’re going to have to endure this appearing (very) sporadically on your television for the next nine months. The good news: If Olbermann ever needs a washed-up comedian turned fringe-left demagogue to fill in for Garofalo on those tell-me-what-I-want-to-hear-about-the-right segments, now he’s got the perfect substitute.
Two clips for you here, one of her guillotine remarks on Russia Today, a.k.a. Kremlin TV, and the other of a retired LAPD cop who submitted this clip as his question to Obama in that lame Google+ townhall event a few days ago. Out of more than 133,000 questions submitted, with more than 1.6 million votes cast, this was the second-most popular. There is a market out there for her core issue, although, needless to say, she’s not going anywhere because of it.

I'd like candidate Barr to sing the national anthem for us once again...
Wow... at least no one can say that the looney tunes and half-wits in this country are not fairly represented!!
It’s the rest of us who are in trouble

She will bleed off some of Zero’s base. Another nutcase on the Democratic side.

Uh, actually, I really think she might be an improvement over Obama.

It’s about time we had a president with some chest hair and male plumbing.

There's a pimple forming on my butt that's better than Romney.

I, for one, approve.
Seriously, she just might have enough notoriety to recreate the Nader effect.
Esp if she can get Colbert to back her.
"Better than Romney."
You beat me to it; I agree 100%, even with the pimple thing, but I have not seen it.

The MSM will do their best to ignore her... they don't want votes taken from their 'favorite child' - Obama.

In the pic it looks like she is scratching herself.
Here is a “third party” I can support. Go, Roseanne, we need you.
"She will bleed off some of Zeros base"
I was afraid the Green Party was going to purposefully not run any candidates with a chance this cycle in deference to Obama. But now there's a tiny chance the Green Party might get the 5% of the popular vote they need to become a "legitimate" party.
Any Republican/Conservative in a solidly blue state needs to at least consider the possibility of voting for the Green Party candidate, whoever it is, in order to create a more permanent thorn in the side of the DNC.
There is no way California is going for anyone but Obama. So a vote for the Republican candidate, whoever that is, is going to change nothing.
Voting Barr may have some long term strategic value.
She was grabbing her balls.
Finally! A serious candidate with gravitas! /sarc

American Idol nation.
A little off topic but here it is anyway one more time...........I think Barr believes she is one of the 99%
The original quote from Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, was, "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money." Is this what Obama-Care and most of the existing and increasing "entitlements" in effect are? 50% of the population do not pay any Federal income tax, yet many of those that did not pay anything to the Fed' received Federal tax refunds, that were called tax cuts by the President! Politicians are using tax payer money to "buy" votes and ensure their re-election or the election of their cronies. Too many people believe the Federal government and the United States is so big and so wealthy that it can sustain and support this clearly destructive fiscal behavior. What do you think? And how would you stop and reverse this already dangerous and irresponsible activity?

When I saw this news last night, I almost cheered. Briefly considered sending her a campaign contribution. Too bad she is so annoying that she will not draw enough votes from Obama to make a difference.
