Remember Roseanne Barr, star of one of the most popular sitcoms of, well, ever? You do? Great. Now, remember how she always seemed a little off-kilter in interviews, maybe even a little nuts (remember, this is a woman who even voluntarily married Tom Arnold, in the peak of his Tom Arnoldom)? You do? Even better. Because it makes it all the more easy for you to believe me when I say this (deep breath): Roseanne Barr is running for President of the United States. Yep.
She announced it last night on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, according to The Clicker:
“You know, Jay. I decided that since you’re the one who got Arnold Schwarzenegger elected as governor of California, that I wanted to make my announcement here on your show… My announcement is that I am running for president of the United States… I’m totally serious…Cause I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the tax payer. In fact, I’m choosing the tax payers as my vice president.”
Ok then. Well, this should at least be a little more interesting that Donald Trump’s half-cocked pseudo bid for the presidency.
Now, in other news, I’d like to announce my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States, since apparently anyone with a public forum can do it, and since Roseanne already nabbed the crazy-person standby of “the tax payers” as her vice presidential candidate, I’d like to introduce you to my V.P., Rufus T. Paddington, Esq., my stuffed teddy bear doll. He’ll do well in the northeastern primaries, I’m sure of it.
What do you think of Roseanne’s bid for public office?
