Comedian slash sort-of presidential candidate Roseanne Barr is laying into Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, over her recent remark that being a mom was her full-time job.

It’s not that Barr supports Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s comment (and subsequent apology) criticizing Ann for having “never worked a day in her life.”

It’s just that Ann’s claim of raising five kids on her own is BS, Roseanne says.

“Mrs. Mitt Romney claims to have worked her toned ass off, raising five Romney males all on her own, as privileged wives often do … but, no, Ann, I call bulls–t on your Big Mama story, girlfriend,” Barr wrote in a column for The Daily Beast.

Barr went on criticizing Romney for claiming she did it all solo, with the exception of a little assistance from a maid who would come in a couple of hours a week.

Roseanne writes that Ann is basically full of it:

“Of course Mrs. Mitt Romney [doesn’t know] the name of the ‘cleaning lady,’ because like 99 percent of rich people, they are oblivious to those women who do work outside the home, even when they work inside the home of the Romney family.”

“I say let’s find that ‘cleaning lady’ (if she is even documented) and ask HER how many hours she worked per week over the years,” concluded Barr.

There you go. It’s not exactly Ted Nugent going off on Barack Obama, but this is certainly a fiery, unexpected and one-sided celebrity political feud.
