Roseanne Barr Seeking President For 99 Percent
February 6, 2012 by Sam Rolley
If Donald Trump and the Republican field have not already made the 2012 Presidential election feel like a circus for some Americans, they will likely change their minds with the announcement that a new candidate is seeking nomination via the Green Party: Roseanne Barr.
Though the television personality probably will gain little traction in the race, she says she is running for the 99 percent, according to The Daily Mail.
“The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants – bought and paid for by the 1 per cent – who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said.
Barr is best known for her portrayal as a wise-cracking, blue collar mom on the television show “Roseanne” in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She currently operates a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.
“I will barnstorm American living rooms,” Barr explained in a candidate questionnaire submitted as part of her Green Party application package obtained by The Associated Press. “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.”
The Green Party’s presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July.
