Barr, who herself ran for president in 2012 with the Peace and Freedom Party after failing to win the Green Party nomination, said that it doesn’t matter that Clinton, who announced her candidacy last week, is a woman, because at the end of the day, it’s just politics as usual.
“I think she’s a Democrat just like they all are,” Barr told the Daily Beast. “She seems like every other Democrat. I would not like to see her win. She’s the same old shit. I’d like to see me win.
“I don’t see how she can win, but it will be interesting to see how the process goes — although it’s kind of offensive that the American people for 21 months have to live through the mudslinging that goes on between the two parties, which I think is just a tactic to prevent government from doing anything about any of our problems,” she continued. “It just elongates the election process. It’s like a traffic jam. That’s how it works: blaming and mudslinging.”
Barr would rather see a candidate who is truly woman-friendly, regardless of the gender of that person.
“I think that a party that was woman-friendly would be revolutionary, and that party could be headed by a male or female,” she said. “It’s what the party itself stands for that matters. She is standing as a Democrat so she’s a Democrat, and I don’t see much difference between them and the Republicans. They both get paid by the same guys.
“I would rather see the first intelligent, honest American president,” Barr added. “I don’t care what’s in their shorts. I don’t care what it looks like down there at all. The thing I did like Hillary for was that she was the first candidate who ever listened to what women said, because she had to.”
So, we’re thinking Hillary should probably not hit Roseanne up for a campaign contribution.
