Ready for the ‘Roseanne-archy?’
Actress Roseanne Barr will have her name on the Presidential ballot in Florida. Barr will be representing the Peace and Freedom party, and will be listed alongside Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Gary Johnson, as well as leaders of the Socialist Party and Objectivist Party.
Barr’s running mate will be Cindy Sheehan, an anti-war activist, and the party platform will be for the legalization of marijuana, and same sex marriage.
Roseanne annoucned her bid for the White House in 2011, but never could have expected to actually be on the ballot. In a new video posted on her website she states, “We definitely do not have any serious choices in this election besides me.”
So what does Roseanne’s addition to the ballot do to the election in Florida, where according to most polls Mitt Romney holds a slight lead? Probably not much, but with her platform running on some hot button social issues, one would have to think that it could sway a few voters away from President Obama, but only for the sake of them making a point. Certainly not because they believe she could actually win.
