USA Today: Roseanne Barr not giving up Green Party campaign

Down but not out, comedian Roseanne Barr says she is still in the running for the Green Party presidential nomination despite the fact that her opponent appears to have locked up the race.

Party officials say that Jill Stein — a physician who ran against Mitt Romney for governor of Massachusetts as the Green Party candidate in 2002 – is the presumptive nominee, having secured a majority of the delegates to next month’s national convention in Baltimore. A Stein press release says she now has 203.5 of the 304 convention delegates.

    Actually, I believe James Ogle of USA Parliament fame claims she HAS become a member of his well respected organization as a member of the Green Tea Party. Check it out. You can’t make this stuff up!

    Me: The USA Parliament is not a well respected organization. Almost no one has heard of it, and those who have heard of it only found out about it because that James Ogle keeps spamming every website he can find. Those people are delusional.

    @5… right you are! Actually, sarcasm more than irony. I guess I should have used a smiley.

    Barr could still be selected as the vice presidential candidate. Increasing her delegate total would certainly increase her case for winning that position. I think selecting Barr for VP might be a smart move for the Jill Stein campaign, because it would bring in a lot of money and corporate media attention to her campaign, which she would still be in charge of as the presidential candidate.

    I agree. Despite Jill Stein clearly ahead in delegates, Roseanne Barr seems to get more media attention in general. Having her on the ticket might be a decent way to get the word out.
