Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 at 10:24 am in 2012 presidential election.
Peace and Freedom Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr announced today her campaign is running a television ad in the Bay Area urging people to “vote your conscience,” and reminding them that “choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.”
Barr’s running mate is antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan; they’re on the ballot in California and several other states, but not enough states to garner the Electoral College votes they would need to win the presidency.
The 30-second spot is running prime and near-prime time on several cable networks, including CNN, TBS, MNBC, Comedy Central, WE and TV Land; the latter two networks carry “Roseanne” re-runs.
Barr spoke at Oakland’s Oaksterdam University recently to emphasize her support for marijuana legalization and to discuss other aspects of her campaign.
