Roseanne Barr Wants To Run For President

Roseanne Barr wants to run for president. She made the announcement while appearing on the Jay Leno Show. Barr said she wasn’t joking about it either and was serious she will join the 2012 presidential campaign.

She said she would form a new political party, since she hates both the Republican and Democratic ones. “I am running for President of the United States … I’m not for either party because they both suck, and they’re both a bunch of criminals, so I made up my own party — it’s America’s Green Tea Party,” she said late Thursday on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

“I’m totally serious, ’cause I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the taxpayer,” she continued, adding she will be “choosing the taxpayers as my vice president.”

Barbara Ehrenreich a feminist, democratic socialist, and political activist once called Barr a working-class spokesperson representing “the hopeless underclass of the female sex: polyester-clad, overweight occupants of the slow track; fast-food waitresses, factory workers, housewives, members of the invisible pink-collar army; the despised, the jilted, the underpaid,” but a master of “the kind of class-militant populism that the Democrats, most of them anyway, never seem to get right.” Barr refuses to use the term “blue collar” because it masks the issue of class

She went on to talk about if elected, she would eliminate taxes, legalize marijuana and eradicate the use of money as payment for goods and services. “Everything will be based on barter and growing and eating vegetables,” she said. If that were to be the case, she would be pretty wealthy considering she now owns a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.
