Roseanne Barr Running For President

What?!

Under the Green Party.

Oh, haha, yeah okay. Carry on.

Roseanne Barr, the same woman who wore a shirt with a giant chicken on it for nine years on her syndicated sitcom, is officially running for President of the United States of America.

I need to know nothing else about this. She will have my vote.

The comedian turned reality star registered with the Federal Election Commission in late January to run for the Green Party nomination, according to the Los Angeles Times. Barr said in a statement:

“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 added that she's been "a tireless advocate of Occupy Wall Street."

I think this actually was an episode of Roseanne.

On Twitter, Roseanne listed out some of the issues she wants to tackle: forgiving student loans, 'kicking out' the Federal Reserve, instituting single-payer healthcare, going after "financial terrorists," reconfiguring American diets, and fighting for gay rights.
Oh, and she also wants to legalize marijuana. A lot of you readers just got real political.

"The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants -- bought and paid for by the 1% -- who are not doing what's in the best interest of the American people," Barr continued.

She took to Twitter to share what will inevitably be her campaign slogan:

"Vote for me. I'll fix this sh-t!"

Ah, what the hell. I liked that one episode where you got into a fight with Aunt Jackie for being mean to D.J.
