Roseanne Barr Seeks Green Party Nomination

This post first appeared on The Shmooze blog at the Forward.

Not sure of Newt Gingrich’s chance of ever making it to the White House? The Shmooze is confident that his odds are better than Roseanne Barr’s.

But Barr isn’t too worried.

As a long time supporter of the Green Party, I look forward to working with people who share my values. Behold the greening of America!” Barr announced.
