Not sure of Newt Gingrich’s chance of ever making it to the White House? The Shmooze is confident that his odds are better than Roseanne Barr’s.
But Barr isn’t too worried. After completing all the necessary paperwork and declaring her candidacy for the Green Party’s nomination, she admitted that it was doubtful that she would win, given the existing power structures. “As I say, I know it will be a tough fight — We (the greens) only have a 99% chance to win this election,” she tweeted, making reference to the 99% made famous by Occupy Wall Street. “The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1% — who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people. As a long time supporter of the Green Party, I look forward to working with people who share my values. Behold the greening of America!” Barr announced.
