No Joke: Roseanne Barr Seeks Green Party Presidential Nod, Anti-War Activist Cindy Sheehan Says She Would Endorse


They say truth is stranger than fiction.

Longtime actress Roseanne Barr is running for the Green Party's presidential nomination -- and according to reports, the comedienne says it's no joke. To make matters all the more bizarre, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan said on her blog that she would support a "Barr for President."

Two peas in a pod.

Noting that the Green Party is "not entirely functional," Sheehan said that, even though Barr isn't part of the 99%, the comedian would still make an excellent president.

In a recent blog entry posted by SFist, Sheehan wrote:

Many people have a misperception about Roseanne, but she came to San Francisco to support my campaign when I ran against Nancy Pelosi in 2008 and I have had a chance to meet with her, hang out with her and interview her a couple of times on my radio show. She is also bright, articulate, well-informed, even more progressive, and even though she is not a member of the 99%, she knows our tune and can sing our hearts.

I have heard rumors from GP insiders that Barr is not a "serious candidate," but I can also attest to the fact that she is a very introspective and thoughtful person that would not be doing this if she were not, "in it to win it."

To really change things for the better for the 99%, I am convinced that we need a united leftwing worker's party instead of so many different factions of basically the same program and that will take working our fingers to the bone between elections--not just every four years presenting a few different candidates. Personally, I have not decided whom to support (if anyone) in this rigged Federal Electoral Industrial Complex sham of "free elections," (I am slightly more interested in Venezuela's elections in October), but I can tell you one thing for sure: this One Party politburo that infests and infects the halls of power needs to be stood on its head and kicked in the ass and Rosie is the person to do it, if ever there was one.

Politically outspoken, Barr said in a statement Thursday that she's a long-running Green Party supporter and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said Democrats and Republicans aren't working in the best interests of the American people.

According to the Associate Press, 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.

Barr, whose hit series "Roseanne" garnered her an Emmy and Golden Globe, has a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.
