Roseanne for President: For Real This Time!

I say “for real this time” because way back in August, I told you that Roseanne had announced that she was running for president. Back then, she insisted that she was serious about running so that she could “speak on behalf of the taxpayers of this country who r dissed 2 the max.” Before that, in 2010, Roseanne went to D.C. to announce her campaign. I thought it was a joke, and that perhaps Roseanne just wanted to bring light to important political issues that she cared about, but I was wrong. Roseanne is actually running for president of the United States. Hooray?

From TMZ:

Roseanne Barr — who famously butchered the National Anthem — has filed official documents to become the Green Party’s nominee for President of the United States of America.

Barr — who has been waging a Twitter and Facebook grassroots, digital campaign — has just made it official.  She wants to carry the Green Party banner in the November election.

Barr says she’s sick of Democrats and Republicans, whom she believes are not working in the best interests of the American people.

So what, you ask, is Roseanne pushing?  The answer is simple … pot.  She wants marijuana legalized and sold strictly domestically.

As for the whole Iraq thing … she’ll get back to us.

Are there enough people who love smoking weed and watching old reruns of Roseanne to make this happen? I seriously doubt it. There might be more people who love what Roseanne stands for and her obvious passion in the things she believes in, but there is just no way that she can pull this off. I can’t tell if that makes me sad or relieved, but either way, I definitely look forward to hearing any and all speeches she has to make during her latest wacky adventure!

Do you guys think Roseanne has any place in the White House? If it comes to it, could you see yourself voting for her?
