(Newser) – Not a bad result for Roseanne Barr: Only five people finished ahead of her in this year's presidential election, notes the Independent Political Report. The comedian ran on the pro-pot Peace and Freedom ticket and drew more than 49,500 votes, according to PBS election results. That puts her in sixth, behind Obama (61 million), Romney (58 million), Gary Johnson (1.2 million), Jill Stein (410,000), and Virgil Goode (115,000). Note: an earlier version of this file based on Google's election results said she placed fifth, but those results left out Goode.)

MyFox Tampa Bay notes that Barr drew about 8,000 votes in Florida, which, by the way, remains too close to call for either Obama or Romney. (Don't hold your breath for a result tonight—the Miami Herald says votes in Miami-Dade won't be fully counted until tomorrow.) No hard feelings from Roseanne, though. She tweeted congratulations to President Obama, notes the Huffington Post.

All those idiots just goofing around is what got Obama re-elected. Wait to all those moochers fine out Obama care "ain't" free, and all those free ride to citizenship people take the job you really did want, and our social services freebies run dry because the cow died. and the muslims have more freedoms than Americans, oh America hope you got your Obama phone because they may not be anymore, then you can sign up and pay for service like everyone else. Stock market has already shown you the way it is going to be. Oh and enjoy your tax increases that are coming next year and all you poor, poor seniors your medicare has just gone up, better forget retirement and get a job so you can buy some Obama-care. Hopital stocks went up, why because they are now the Obama recipient of the money tree.
