Political Circus: Roseanne blasts Palin

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business, but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail to the international stage, there's always something that gets a laugh or a second glance.

From the 'Nut Farm'

Roseanne Barr - comedian, author, political activist and former star of the hit television sitcom "Roseanne" - took shots at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during an interview about her new book on ABC's "Nightline" on Tuesday.

    I do not think it is fair for Roseanne to "blast" the mentally challenged, even though they got it coming.

    Kind of a democrat liberal mantra, blasting Palin, isn't it? I don't know why these Hollywood dope addicts don't get upset over the crime and corruption and lying by the current administration. I guess that just shows how truly uneducated, unsophisticated and utterly unaware they are. They can proudly wear the label "democrat liberal-I am stupid"

    Roseanne Who? Isn't she the one that destroyed the national anthem before a baseball game decades ago?

    Just another has-been without a career trying to use Sarah Palin to get money. Rather sad and pathetic. But what do you expect from Hollywood liberals?

    This is probably the only thing that Roseanne Barr and I agree on. Thanks CNN, for giving the frothing right this beautifully well-made punching bag. *gag*.

    For god's sake, why don't you just rename this blog Palinticker. Neither Palin nor (thank god) Barr (or whatever she's calling herself this week) have anything to do with politics.

    I am sure Governor Palin could not care less what this fat tub of lard has to say.

    The ONLY person that's NOT going to get this is "the PA'IN in the NECK" herself!!!! She is making $$$$$$$$$ while pretending she's running for president. She's starring in her own reality show named, "Sarah Runs for President", and she enjoys every moment of it!!! What a LOSER!!

    I'm getting sick of every hollywood has been and self appointed intellectual trying to buy 15 minutes of fame by taking cheap shots at Palin. If you don't like her then don't vote for her should she ever get back in to politics (which I doubt she will ever do anyway which makes this all a waste of time).
    This isn't even news. The media is trying to turn politics and government in to a sleazy reality show style venue so they can try and snag some of those TMZ dollars and boost ratings.
    It makes me sick what has happened to this country over the last few years. It's been like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

    I have always liked Roseanne, but I just lost respect for her. She's not in politics, so she needs to butt out!

    I am surprised that she would make a comment like that about Mrs Palin.

    Roseanne will get crucified here, but the funny part is, if Roseanne looked like sarah, she'd be defended... if palin looked like Roseanne no one would have ever paid attention to her in the first place, so this article wouldn't exist...... but since it does – these two are inter-changeable................

    She did a show called Roseanne that was the perfect representation of the Democrat family to a tee, well an edited tv version anyway.

    I love it when people who have a total disregard for human life, democrats, trash someone like Palin. Go drive on a blue area road, there is no such thing as a Democrat who is a better person than Sarah Palin.

    Dang... Now you're highlighting one of the few people on the planet that I dislike more than Palin. I need a new news site.
