Oh. Em. Gee. Well, if I had to choose between Roseanne Barr or Donald Trump, I’d definitely vote for Roseanne (if I was a US citizen) – but is this for real? Roseanne Barr is running for President of the United States?
Who knows. She made the announcement on Jay Leno and when he asked her the same question, she responded, “I’m totally serious…’Cause I want to be a part of the debates, because I want to represent the tax payer,” she said last night. “In fact, I’m choosing the tax payers as my vice president.” She then added, “You know Jay, I decided that since you’re the one that got Arnold Schwarzenegger elected as governor of California, that I wanted to make my announcement here on your show because I really wanted to ask for your support.”
So then Jay asked her if she’s a Democrat or a Republican. She responded, “”I’m not for either party because they both suck and they’re both a bunch of criminals,” Barr said. “So I made up my own party. It’s America’s Green Tea Party.”
Okay, the Green Tea Party?
She also credited Sarah Palin for her reality show: “You know, it’s because of her that I decided to do a reality show,” she said. “I have feral pigs that overrun my farm, and I’d like to shoot them out of a helicopter. But, um, that’s kinda what got me thinking that I too should run for president, if she can….I feel like she’s stealing my act, anyway.”
“I will deliver a speech to Washington DC in the name of the people of this country who do all the work–those who make less than 250K per year. I am running for the Green Tea Party of America. I have the solution to every problem figured out, and it’s cheap and good.”
