The "Nobody-for-President" campaign is a classic. You know the drill, "Nobody has solved the problems of war, hunger and poverty. Vote for Nobody." It's been made famous by the great hippie clown Wavy Gravy. Here is the 2008 incarnation of Nobody for President.

But, hey, this gag goes all the way back to 1932. Check out this Betty Boop cartoon that lays out exactly what we have been viewing nearly 75 years later. Is this not the mold from which Sarah Palin was cast?

Note: I find quite a few of these marvelous tidbits over at The Daily Dish.
