  1. My favorite of all time:

    Back in North Dakota in the seventies and eighties, there was this crazy old hippie, Harley McClain. He was a Democrat who’d go to the conventions with his guitar and play songs about whatever was going on. He was a media magnet. Along in there somewhere, he “broke off” to form the “Chemical Farming Banned” party (he was, I should point out, an “organic” farmer who presided over a “farm” that was mostly choked with weeds).

    Anyway, he ran for president in 1980 on/as the CFB Party ticket. He lost (perhaps you recall) – after which he did two things:
    1. He noticed that the ballots in NoDak (and many other states) put the GOP and Dem/NPL at the top, and all the other parties below, in an arbitrary order that gave the majors an unseemly advantage.
    2. Because of #1, he “declared himself president of the United States”.

    Because of #1, he filed suit in federal (IIRC) court, and got North Dakota’s ballot placement law ruled unconstitutional (in a precedent that caused several other states to be forced to change theirs as well).

    Because of #1 and 2 together, he became a bit of a national…er, celebrity. He got his fifteen seconds of fame, anyway.

    “Chemical Farming Banned” = one funky party.

  2. Don’t look now, employers fired a ton of people last month in response to The One’s apotheosis.

    Maybe we better form the Economic Refugees from Obamerica Party.
