Did you hear about what happened at the presidential campaign debate yesterday? One of the candidates didn’t bother to show up.
No, I’m not talking about the competition of dueling extremisms from the Republicans in Michigan. This debate was between more reasonable presidential candidates, competing for the Green Party nomination.
The debate was hosted by the Arizona Green Party in Glendale yesterday afternoon. Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party frontrunner, was there. Rosanne Barr, actor and more recent entry to the Green presidential contest, did not come. Barr has been working on a new television series for NBC, “Downwardly Mobile”, in which she co-stars with John Goodman as the manager of a trailer park.
Although Barr has celebrity name recognition and money, Stein has been dominant in the Green Party primary contests being held so far. Stein has 22 delegates dedicated to her at the Green Party convention to be held in July. Barr has just 5. Kent Mesplay has 2. There are 2 uncommitted delegate slots secured so far.
