Roseanne: God Is Telling Me To Run For President
Check out my new column, an incredibly zingy and provocative conversation with TV legend Roseanne Barr about her race for the presidency as a Green Tea Party candidate who wants to throw out the bums and replace them with grandmothers and other solution seekers.
Roseanne started following me on Twitter, so I immediately followed her back and messaged that I wanted to interview her -- about her presidential bid as well as about her new show, Roseanne's Nuts, and her beau, Johnny Argent (above), who's musical and funny and helps keep her grounded.
A matter of hours later, Roseanne was on the phone, and I was thrilled, but hardly surprised.
She's a woman of action and not a phony like all the other people populating your tube!
Anyway, check out the conversation because it's really stimulating -- especially when I sardonically compare Roseanne to Barbara Walters.
Her reaction -- like her whole campaign -- is priceless.
She's a va-genius!
