Comedienne Roseanne Barr has announced her intention to run for office as the leader of a new U.S. political party.
The Roseanne star got political during an appearance on Thursday night's (04Aug11) Tonight Show with Jay Leno, when she declared she was interested in challenging Barack Obama as president next year (12).
She told Leno, "I'm totally serious. I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the tax payer."
She added, "I'm not for either party (Democrat or Republican) because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals, so I made up my own party. It's the Green Tea Party."
Coincidentally, Arnold Schwarzenegger used a past appearance on Leno's late night show to make his run for California Governor official.
