If you’re still wondering who should receive your vote for President of the United States this year, then your decision-making process is about to get a serious complication. Roseanne Barr, stand-up comedienne and sitcom legend, is still very serious about leading the country for four years. In fact, according to MSN’s Wonderwall, Barr has been nominated by the Peace and Freedom party as their presidential candidate of choice.
Joining the actress in her quest for national domination is anti-war activist and fellow Peace and Freedom party member Cindy Sheehan, who will will serve as her vice presidential running mate. In 2005, Sheehan made some waves when she protested outside of President George W. Bush’s Texas Ranch, an event she followed up in 2008 with an unsuccessful Congressional bid.
“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,” Barr said before the nomination. “Both the Democrats and the Republicans do the same evils once they’re in office.”
Unfortunately for the candidate, she won’t appear on nearly enough ballots to make a difference. According to CNN, the California-based Peace and Freedom Party has little influence outside of the state. Of course, that doesn’t seem to bother Barr much at all. Her sights are set, and her mission has been declared.
“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,” Barr ballyhooed.
Shortly after the nomination came down, Barr appeared at a Comedy Central roast in her honor. That particular event is presently scheduled to air on the aforementioned network on August 12.
