Roseanne Barr, the Emmy winner , the crazy, outspoken comedian…has filed official documents to become the Green Party’s nominee for President of the United States of America.
She confirmed today, tweeting, “If ppl will merely do as I tell them to do just this one time, I promise everything will get a lot better quickly4 the majority. #nutn2lose.”
And she has worked the land! Barr and her boyfriend tilled a macadamia nut farm on her since-canceled Lifetime show, Roseanne’s Nuts.
Having just declared her candidacy, Barr is showing optimism worthy of Newt Gingrich.
“As i say, i know it will be a tough fight- We (the greens) only have a 99% chance to win this election,” she tweeted this afternoon, adding that her true intention is to raise awareness of the Green Party, which first ran a candidate for public office in 1985.
There are 132 Green officeholders in the U.S., including five mayors. The Green Party will pick its 2012 presidential candidate at a convention in Baltimore in July.
