Roseanne Barr, the comedian best known for 1980s sitcom Roseanne, is putting her name in for the 2012 presidential election. As a candidate for the Green Party nomination, the 59-year-old actress emphasizes her support for Occupy Wall Street and her disdain for patriarchal politics.
Both the Democratic and Republican parties are bought and paid for by corporate America and cater to the needs of the highest bidder as opposed to the people they claim to represent, she said in a statement to Green Party Watch. I cannot be bought.
The question is, can she be nominated, either? At the moment, Barr is in a distant second place to Dr. Jill Stein thanks to her late entry into the nomination process. Calls for President Barr, however, have already been lighting up on Twitter.
