The weird world of politics just got a little weirder. Actress and comic Roseanne Barr has filed the necessary paperwork to run for the Green Party nomination for President.
According to Entertainment Weekly Barr said: “I will barnstorm American living rooms… Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.”Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
The Green PartyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â convention in Baltimore in July will officially select the nominee.
In what is perhaps a new slogan to hit the political scene, she said on Twitter, via her moniker @therealRoseanne:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â “vote for me, I’ll fix this s—! -Barr 2012-”
Barr doesn’t seem to have an illusion about her chances, and has notedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â that the likely Green Party nominee will be Jill Stein, but says “until then I’ll serve.”
