    (July 6, 1927-April 24, 1997)
    Born in South Bend, Washington
    Performer on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967-70)
    Appeared in the films 'Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?' (1968), 'Brand X' (1970), 'Fore Play' (1975), 'Harper Valley, PTA' (1978), 'Bloodsuckers from Outer Space' (1984) and 'They Still Call Me Bruce' (1987)
    Recorded the albums 'Pat Paulsen for President' (1968), 'Live at the Ice House' (1970) and 'Unzipped' (1998)
    Known for his perennial, satiric campaigns for the presidency (1968,72,80,88,92,96)
    Campaign slogans included 'I've upped my standards, now up yours,' 'If elected, I will win' and 'Just a common, ordinary, simple savior of America's destiny'
    He said he changed his college major from forestry to drama to meet girls.
    His second marriage lasted less than a year.
    His own TV series, 'Pat Paulsen's Half a Comedy Hour,' lasted only three months.
    His last running mate was Tiny Tim.
    He joined the Marines during World War II.
    He received a special Emmy for his work on the Smothers Brothers show (1968).
    Tommy Smothers said, 'He was the best at deadpan comedy since Buster Keaton.'
    Although tongue-in-cheek, his campaigns provided commentary on modern politics.
    His web site noted, 'Pat's campaign was based in comedy and he ran it using outright lies, double talk and unfounded attacks on his challengers. Who thought that this style would be the method of campaigns in the future?'
