Roseanne Barr announced, “I am running for President of the United States,” on Thursday’s edition of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
Said Roseanne: “I’m totally serious, cause I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the taxpayer.
“In fact, I’m choosing the taxpayers as my vice president.”
Roseanne’s inspiration to do both a reality show, and quest for the Oval Office, came from an unlikely source: Sarah Palin.
“That’s kinda what got me to thinking that I too should run for president, if she can,” Roseanne said.

Roseanne, 58, said she won’t be running under the banner of the Democrat or Republican party: “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.”
Roseanne’s platforms: No taxes, forgive all student loans, legalize marijuana, eliminate money.
“Everything will be based on barter and growing and eating vegetables,” she said.
“Roseanne’s Nuts” airs on Lifetime Wednesday at 9/8c.
