Roseanne Barr and the Rapid Rise of Rick Insanitorum

Rick's rapid rise in the polls is because the anybody but the mudslinger Moneybags Mitt contingent finds him 'likeable'. As Tony Norman's article today says "he's a principled culture warrior  who doesn't believe in evolution, man-made global warming, sex for purposes other than having children, separation of church and state...and that he'd would like to see doctors who perform abortions criminally prosecuted and that war with Iran to thwart its nuclear ambitions is in America's best interests."

But is Religiously Rabid Rick really any more of a danger to civilization as we know it than Newt, Mitt or the Obomber? Not in my opinion. They're all tools of the status quo and none of them could or would change anything that their billionaire backers hadn't pre-approved.

Neither the Rebublican or Democratic parties offer any hope of any kind of meaningful change and articles like Tony Norman's that just echo the talking points of the Democrats are part of the problem not part of the solution. The only Ron Paul is offering any new ideas and the venerable Dr. Paul, despite his courageous foreign policy, monetary policy and anti-drugwar positions, basically agrees with so much other ridiculous Rabid Rick type fundamentalist crap that he too is unsupportable in the big picture.

So, as of now The Mud Report is endorsing Roseanne Barr of the Green Party for President of the United States. When Roseanne announced her decision to run she declared that she would not run as a Democrat or a Republican "because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals." Roseanne currently leads Moneybags Mitt in national polls and her full policy platform is available online here. Roseanne gave her first campaign speech in Zucotti Park on Sept 17th, 2011, the first day of OWS's historic occupation.

"Only three weeks into my campaign, we are off to a great start. This poll shows the deep dissatisfaction voters have with the two corporate parties of the 1% and the opportunity that the Green Party has to make a real difference for the 99% in this election and elections to come. I am in it to win it and look forward to giving the Democrats and Republicans a run for their corporate money." – Roseanne Barr, Wednesday, February 15th, 2012
