TRENDING: America one step closer to President Roseanne
CNN ^ | 08/05/2012 | Robert Yoon

Posted on 08/05/2012 1:54:05 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Exactly one year after announcing her White House bid on "The Tonight Show," actress and comedian Roseanne Barr won the presidential nomination of the Peace and Freedom Party Saturday in Los Angeles.

Barr's vice presidential running-mate is Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq and anti-war activist best known for her protest outside of then-President George W. Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch.

"Cindy and I are the ‘Throw the Bums Out’ ticket and the ‘Ballot Access’ ticket. The American people are sick and tired of this ‘lesser evil’ garbage they get fed every election year," said Barr before the party's convention vote, which was held at the United Methodist Church in Los Angeles. "Both the Democrats and the Republicans do the same evils once they’re in office."

Barr had originally sought the Green Party presidential nomination but lost that contest last month to Dr. Jill Stein.

As of now, Barr will not appear on enough ballots in November to have a mathematical chance of winning the White House or having much of an effect on the final outcome. The Peace and Freedom Party, based in California, historically has had little ballot presence outside the state.

If she can rob enough votes from Obama in California to make a difference, bless her heart. Otherwise, yawn

Don’t forget that this Hollyweird POS tweeted that customers of Chick-Fil-A deserve to get cancer. She’s scum of the earth.

They weren’t very funny then. Just sort of a fat, sullen, low velocity Don Rickels.

Dumb and Dumber than Obama and Biden?
I think not. In fact just they just might be an improvement of the current administration.

Good. I hope the whacked out Leftist takes lots of votes from the whacked out Leftists the Democrats and the Republicans are running this year in California. The whacked out Leftist vote can’t be too divided to suit me.

If these Code Pink commandos can siphon off a few Obama votes in the swing states, all the better but I doubt they will be on the ballot in any states but the ones sure to vote for President Zero anyway. Just another leftist gimmick and publicity stunt. It makes my eyes tear over with boredom.

So, you want us to just skip ahead to greater evil? How is the George Zimmerman hit you were advocating a while back?

“Roseanne Barr won the presidential nomination of the Peace and Freedom Party Saturday in Los Angeles.”

Ya know, I just might vote for her, assuming this party even makes it onto the ballot - after all, it'll be just like voting for Mittens (a vote against Æthelblack the Unready) without having to vote for him...

Finally, a choice Obamabots can love. Here’s to “Hope that the bastards vote for her.”

“America one step closer to President Roseanne”

CNN has lost all sense of reality.

I wonder, does Roseanne get up in the morning and look into the mirror and say “Good morning big mouth, how you doing?”.

And, she answers herself, “Good morning to you too, I’m ready for another shameless day of mayhem and idiocy, you up for it?”.

This is the only relevance she has.
