The 2012 Presidential Election just got a lot, well…louder. Noted actress/comedian/harridan Roseanne Barr has tossed her wig into the race on the Peace and Freedom Party’s ticket.
Roseanne announced her bid for the White House last year on The Tonight Show and originally intended to run under the Green Party, but lost to Dr. Jill Stein last month. Joining Barr on the ballot is Vice Presidential nominee Cindy Sheehan, mother of Iraq war veteran Casey Sheehan.
“The American people are sick and tired of this ‘lesser evil’ garbage they get fed every election year,” Barr said in a statement. “Both the Democrats and the Republicans do the same evils once they’re in office. I’m here to tell the voters: if you want to tell the government and the two domineering parties that you’re sick and tired of all their evil, register in the Peace and Freedom Party and vote for me and Cindy.”
Presidential nominee Barr celebrated her nomination by attending her Comedy Central Roast where host Jane Lynch told ChickFil-A exactly where they can stick their Fil-A, comedian Jeffrey Ross made an off-color joke about the Dark Knight shootings in Colorado and ex Tom Arnold crawled out from whatever rock/prostitute he’d been hiding under to bury the hatchet.
An auspicious beginning if there ever was one, but sadly Roseanne won’t stand a mathematical chance in hell of winning in fall, but will doubtlessly — and boisterously — make her opinions heard and drive membership for the Peace and Freedom Party. [LA Times, CNN]
