In case you were worried about the future of the United States, your problems have been solved.
On Tuesday evening, while filling in for Joy Behar on HLN, comedienne Roseanne Barr announced that she's running for president (video follows with transcript and commentary):
MICHAEL MOORE: Start supporting this.
ROSEANNE BARR: Start, yes, start being active. Right? Start being active.
MOORE: Yes, but not just going to demonstrations. You need to organize your neighbors, your churches, your schools and can I just say --
BARR: Yes, but we`re running out of time.
MOORE: Can I just say this into your camera? Some of you need to run. You need to run for office.
BARR: I`m running. That`s what I was going to ask in the next --
MOORE: You need to run.
BARR: -- in the next segment. I`m going to run for President of these United States.
BARR: On behalf of the tax-paying people.
BARR: I`m thinking about it, anyway. On this Red Bull.
Let's hope this isn't just the Red Bull talking.
