We aren’t joking.

Roseanne Barr, you know, the comedian and star of Roseanne, wants the Green Party to nominate her for President.

While we agree that the two party system is pretty terrible, we’re not sure she has the kind of skills needed to run a nation!

She said:

“The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1 percent — who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people. I will barnstorm American living rooms,” she said in a candidate questionnaire submitted to the Green Party. “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.”

She has already submitted the paperwork to be considered in July!

The Green party holds a convention in Baltimore to decide. We’re wondering if they’ll not take her seriously… or use her fame to help give themselves a foothold in the actual race.

Guess we’ll find out!

How do U feel about this?? Do U take her seriously enough for something like this to be real??

If you haven’t seen the video of President Obama singing Al Green at a fundraiser at New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater last week, you need to.

No matter what you think of his views, the Prez proved with his riff on “Let’s Stay Together” that he’s got pipes! And we weren’t the only ones impressed.

Friday, American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe Tweeted an official offer to the Commander in Chief that he can’t refuse. Or at least he shouldn’t:

Obama Sings Al Green

“@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we’d love to invite you on to #AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green.”

Now that would be the DVR moment of the decade.

We’re gonna guess that Obama will cite scheduling conflicts and pass, but if you think about it, what better way to win over voters in an election year?

Okay, perhaps a robust economy would be a bigger ballot box boost, but you get the idea. The guy’s vocal chops are legit and deserve a wider audience.
