(Newser) – Roseanne Barr is running for president, or so she told Jay Leno last night. Could this all be a publicity stunt for her upcoming reality show, Roseanne's Nuts? She claims she's "totally serious," although it should be noted that she also said she's running for "prime minister of Israel. It's a twofer." Her party? "America's Green Tea Party." Her vice presidential running mate? "The taxpayers." Her slogan? "Finally a Politician Who Can't Get a Maid Pregnant." Her key campaign issues include legalizing marijuana, invading Mexico for oil, and eliminating taxes (not to mention eliminating money entirely). Watch the full interview.
