Barr wrote on her Green Party candidate questionnaire she "will barnstorm American living rooms.

"Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election."

In August, she told Jay Leno her quest for the Oval Office came from an unlikely source: Sarah Palin.

“That’s kinda what got me to thinking that I too should run for president, if she can,” Roseanne said.

In that appearance, she said her platforms would be to eliminate taxes, forgive all student loans and legalize marijuana, among others.
