TV Sitcom Actress To Seek Green Party Presidential Nod

Roseanne Barr is running for the Green Party's presidential nomination, and she says it's no joke.

The actress-comedian says she's a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said Democrats and Republicans aren't working in the best interests of the American people.

Barr has submitted paperwork to the Green Party for her candidacy. The party's presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July.

Barr's hit TV sitcom "Roseanne" aired from 1988 to 1997 and earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe. She played a wise-cracking mom in the comedy about a blue-collar family. Barr has a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.

    I hate every human being on earth. I feel that everyone is beneath me, and I feel they should all worship me. That's what I told my kids. I think I must have been Adolf Hitler in a past life. Roseanne Barr

          BLAHammed, show some sensitivity to the libterds after all, they are I think humans of a sort. They have feelings too! Misplaces, confused, angry and vile but do it for the children and old people on dissability while it was all Bush't fault. You see their confusion? Just remember, they voted on Obama...yeah...and people know it too, you know the type...they were the Kerry voters and Gore voters....when you don't have much to work with, you strike out in frustration....
