I have just learned from high placed campaign sources that Roseanne Barr, a candidate for the Green Party presidential nomination, and 2008 Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr are in serious discussions about a joint campaign for POTUS.
The sticking point right now is which one would head the ticket. Roseanne Barr has been making the case that, as the progressive, she would bring 27% of the voters in the country on board as supporters in the general election, as opposed to only 13% that would support the Libertarians. She also explains that she had a top rated TV program in the 1990s, much more popular than Bob Barr’s impeachment of Bill Clinton, and that she has been voted queen of the US Parliament Inc.
For his part, Bob Barr’s team points out that according to the blueprint set forth by political mastermind strategist (and himself one of the leading contenders for the Boston Tea Party presidential nomination) Robert Milnes, the male candidate should be on top and the female should know her place as the VP candidate. “A woman’s place is in the naval observatory, and the Bible says men should always be on top” according to Barr staffer April Moran. “In other words the determining factor for the top of the ticket should be based on anatomy, not ideology.”
Asked to explain this development in light of Bob Barr’s recent endorsement of Newt Gingrich, Ms. Moran said “Newt is a real libertarian, however I just don’t like that Mitt Romney. He is a total yankee liberal from Massachusetts and follows a heathen religion. I know we need to get that illegal alien African Muslim socialist out of the white house by any means necessary, and I think that the poll numbers obviously show that Mr. Bob can win this thing by having a progressive female as a VP candidate.”
Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier will lend his considerable experience to the campaign as a high placed advisor.
