A Divine Matriarch descends upon humanity

Sunday, February 05, 2012
The Green Party slate of contenders vying to represent the party grew by one, and no doubt gained gravitas in the process, when Rosanne Barr was recognized as an official Green Party Presidential candidate by the party's Presidential Campaign Support Committee.

Well done Green Party, well done. Like I always say -- nothing makes a political party look serious more than running a  self-promoting comedienne as a candidate.

Apparently she announced that she was running for the Green Party nomination via her Twitter feed, where she said, "I will run until the convention in July in Baltimore-I fully expect Jill Stein 2b the nominee& I will support her, but til then-I'll serve."

In parsing her Lincolnesque campaign kick-off tweet, I did find it rather odd that it was little more than an endorsement for her opponent Jill Stein, but this is the Green Party after all, so such idiocy is to be expected.

Regardless, as a self appointed Grand Poobah of the Green Party I naturally want to weigh my endorsement of any candidate carefully, so I went to the website Rosanne's World to try to find some information on her positions. It seemed a bit out of date and all I could find was the following:

Mayan prophecy told us that Decenber 21st, 2011 was the date when Patriarchy would completely die off the face of the earth, and that January 24th, 2012 - Divine Matriarchy would descend upon humanity. 'The Temple of The Great Mother' is the first sacred woman space to be dedicated in this new Time.

Decenber 21st, 2011? Oh well, who among us hasn't botched an apocalyptic prediction? Not to mention, technically speaking the month of Decenber never did roll around in 2011, so maybe that's why us patriarchs dodged the bullet.

From digging around various news items about her announced candidacy, her positions appear to be: outlaw war, legalizing marijuana, forgiving all debts and to also back any other position she's ever read on a placard held by an #Occupy protestor.

 Of course my major concern regarding which Green candidate gets my endorsement is which candidate is willing to promise they'll appoint me as ambassador to Brazil, along with a new Embassy Condo located on Ipanema beach in Rio. So, if she wants my valuable endorsement she's going to have to put a cork in the Matriarchy/Patriarchy business long enough to promise me the post in Brazil.

Considering who's serving you, just take care you don't order so many that you develop beer goggles.
