Roseanne Barr came through on her summer promise last night and announced that she will seek the Green Party's nomination in the 2012 presidential election. She also revealed her official campaign slogan on Twitter: "vote for me, I'll fix this shit!"
A compelling argument.
Barr joins three other Green Party candidates and has established a platform that will endear her to both sitcom nostalgics and the far left: She said in a series of Tweets that she wants to institute a "#Europeanstyle" healthcare system and forgive all mortgage and credit debt.
The rest of her feminist political beliefs, as outlined in a May 2010 blog post entitled "My campaign for President of the US/Prime Minister of Israel speech," are laid out in three simple categories:
STEP ONE: MAKE WAR ILLEGAL, AND LEGALIZE HEMP
STEP TWO: CHANGE THE DEMOGRAPHICS OF GOVERNMENT
STEP THREE: (MOST IMPORTANT) I WILL OUTLAW BULLSHIT
If we outlaw bullshit, Barr explains, "the Patriarchy will inevitably begin to crumble, as will the concept of War itself, which is largely a large load of bullshit." Hear, hear. Fix this shit, Roseanne.
