When comedians turn to politics

Sometimes it's funny when comedians announce they're running for political office. Sometimes it's not.

Roseanne Barr recently announced she's running for president next year.  Maybe she's tired of life on the farm.

But she joins a long line of comedians who have campaigned for office, either for laughs or for real. Here's a list.

This is not to be confused with real politicians who do or say funny things while running for office. That list would be much longer.
