Palin inspires Roseanne to run for President

Roseanne Barr is the latest celebrity to swing her focus towards politics.

Following Matt Damon's critiques of education policy and tax cuts, the actress and star of the Lifetime reality show "Roseanne's Nuts" told Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" Thursday that she's running for president.

No, really. Barr said: "You know Jay, I decided that since you're the one that got Arnold Schwarzenegger elected as governor of California, that I wanted to make my announcement here on your show because I really wanted to ask for your support. My announcement is that I am running for president of the United States."

She then added, "I'm totally serious...'Cause I want to be a part of the debates, because I want to represent the tax payer. In fact, I'm choosing the tax payers as my vice president."

It turns out that Sarah Palin was something of an inspiration to Barr. "You know, it's because of her that I decided to do a reality show," Barr said. "I have feral pigs that overrun my farm, and I'd like to shoot them out of a helicopter. But, um, that's kinda what got me thinking that I too should run for president, if she can....I feel like she's stealing my act, anyway."

Barr added that she's trying to steer clear of the Democrat/Republican politics. "I'm not for either party because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals. So I made up my own party. It's America's Green Tea Party."

If this sounds like an elaborate joke, perhaps to tie in to her reality show about her macadamia nut farm, Barr insists she's not kidding.

"[F]or those who ask: yes I'm serious about running 4 pres," she tweeted early Friday. "So I can speak on behalf of the taxpayers of this country who r dissed 2 the max."
