Why Did Roseanne Become So Damn Unfunny?

She hasn't been funny in 17 years (when her sitcom ended). She has had about two funny jokes since, and they were made in the past two years -- one in her book about being pro-life until she had her kids, and another last year about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' divorce, saying something like she was going to try and marry an earthling this time (Katie was looking for someone the opposite of Tom). Her Roast was embarrassingly unfunny. What happened? Did she get rusty from not doing standup for so many years? I saw her off and on in the 2000s, and she was terrible. She recently got all political, and that can kill the funny, but she was unfunny way before she ran for office. I don't get it. I looked back at her HBO special from 100 years ago, and she was incredible. Such an original talent. Her running for office ended her sitcom comeback. She must be so pissed now. The sitcom pilot she did sounded like a total soapbox, so I'm not unhappy it didn't go through.
