Roseanne Brings a Wide Range of Media Attention to GPUS Presidential Race


This is a sample of the attention she has received in the last couple days.

More than once she's said she expects Jill Stein to win.
She has been saying she is serious about running this year for longer than
any other but the perennial independents like Bozo et all.

Although Kent did kind of always say he would run too.

We have two candidates with a very early start,
two candidates who are women,
at least one is one of the best speakers I've ever seen.

From Scott McLarty:

"Roseanne Barr: Is she serious about Green Party presidential bid? The announcement by Roseanne Barr has given the Green Party the flash of media spotlight it has been lacking as the GOP candidates slog through their primaries."
Christian Science Monitor, Feb. 3, 2012
http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/The-Vote/2012/0203/Roseanne-Barr-Is-she-serious-about-Green-Party-presidential-bid
|| The bid certainly has given the Green Party the flash of media spotlight it has been lacking as the GOP candidates slog through their primaries. "We may be laughing now," says Republican strategist David Johnson, who worked on Bob Dole's 1988 presidential campaign, "but even as this announcement comes out, people are clicking on the Green Party website to figure out if it's for real and to find out more." ||

|| Roseanne Barr is running for president of the United States as a Green Party candidate. Funny thing is, she has a better platform and ideas than any major party candidate running for the job, including Barack Obama and the Democrats. ||

"I'm running for President, declares sitcom star Roseanne"
The Independent, Feb. 4, 2012
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/im-running-for-president-declares-sitcom-star-roseanne-6358880.html
|| At the [Green P]arty's convention in July she will be vying for the nomination with Jill Stein, a long-time activist, who easily wins internal popularity polls. That she might not prevail at the convention has apparently occurred to the actress, whose show Roseanne was one of the most watched in the US from 1988 to 1997. "I run in support of the Green Party and probably of Jill Stein – hopefully I can be of service by speaking on media about a viable choice 4 voters," she said on Twitter. Even if Ms Barr is a non-starter, the Green Party might benefit from her celebrity wattage. ||
