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 theyre 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.
