Roseanne Barr Loses Bid For Green Party Nomination
Man! I bet no one saw this coming! Roseanne Barr will not be the Green Party’s nominee for President of the United States. She lost out to Jill Stein, who once ran against Mitt Romney for Governor of Massachusetts. From Newsmax:
Jill Stein, an internist from Lexington, Mass., blasted both Romney and President Barack Obama, saying both had become too dependent on donations from corporations in order to acquire office at the expense of the nation’s citizens.
“We need real public servants who listen to the people — not to the corporate lobbyists that funnel campaign checks into the big war chests,” Stein told applauding supporters at a Holiday Inn in Baltimore. “That’s what brought me to the Green Party, the only national party that is not bought and paid for by corporate money.”
Stein acknowledges that her candidacy is a super long shot. Still, she notes that a growing number of people are expressing frustration with the two major political parties and she cites the Occupy Wall Street movement as an example of that.
I still can’t believe Roseanne didn’t win this! I mean, with all here coherent policy positions she plastered all over Twitter? How did she lose!?! Then again, I guess she expected this. After all, she didn’t even bother to show up to the convention.
