Pat Paulsen. I wasn't old enough to vote but would have been tempted.

Loved him and I just heard a comedy bit of his last week on the radio. Hadn't thought about him in years and now twice in one week.

Between him and the Smothers Brothers (who I LOVED) that was subversive network TV, the kind of stuff that's common now on cable but was not then.

Miss you Pat!
