Roseanne Barr is joining up with Cindy Sheehan for a run for the White House.
Barr asked Sheehan to join her in an attempt to win the nomination for the Peace and Freedom Party, according to Fox News.
|Roseanne Barr is making a run for the White House.
The Peace and Freedom Party represents a far-left point on the political spectrum, explicitly stating on its website that it is “committed to socialism . . .”
Sheehan, a Peace and Freedom Party member who gained fame for her strident opposition to the Iraq war, agreed this week to be Barr’s running mate.
Barr was unsuccessful in her previous effort to secure the position of presidential nominee of the Green Party.
On Friday evening, at the Peace and Freedom Party Convention, Sheehan will deliver a speech on behalf of the Barr-Sheehan ticket.
Barr is also scheduled to make an appearance at the convention on Saturday, in a final pitch to be the Peace and Freedom Party’s nominee.
Barr’s campaign website elaborates on the presidential hopeful’s pursuit of the Peace and Freedom nomination.
“Roseanne Barr for President!” the website declares.
The actor-comedienne is described on the site as being a “. . . mother, grandmother, activist, leader, feminist, and successful business woman that is addressing the concerns of the 99 percent” and “the lone voice of courage and reason who is unstoppable as she holds corporate-funded politicians feet to the fire.”
Sheehan is mentioned on the website as a Barr supporter.
