An actual comedian runs for president...as opposed to the inadvertent comedians
Roseanne Barr is running for president on the Green Party ticket.
My first thought was...Damn, the wrong comic is running for president. If it was Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart or Bill Maher, I'd vote for one of those fellas in a New York minute.
With Roseanne, however, I will have to think more about her candidacy and hear her out for awhile...She is surely funny and her situation comedy show was a definite trailblazer in respectfully depicting working class sensibilities. I also believe she is more knowledgeable about policy issues than half the current members of Congress and most of the Republican candidates for president, who have often been inadvertent comedians.
If any Republican Party stalwarts ridicule her candidacy, we may wish to remind them of the movie stars and also ran television stars they have brought us as candidates over the decades.
