The Age of Reason : Fun while it lasted.

You forgot Memphis's own Prince Mongo. Or Jerry "the King" Lawler.

Kill your opponent just before the election and be guaranteed to win. Just make sure you do it close enough to the election date so that they don't have time to reprint the ballots!

Here in the Gret Stet we had Luther Divine Knox, who legally changed his name to None of the Above in 1979 prior to the governor's election and tried to get on the ballot with that name...

Idaho has Pro Life. Legally changed his name to that and runs every election, usually for Governor but he tried for Senate when Larry Craig's seat was open.

If I remember correctly, he thinks abortion doctors should be killed, or maybe that's imprisoned.

Daughter shook his hand once when he was campaigning on campus at BSU.

Henry Lane of Columbia, Missouri. The guy pissed and moaned about everything from a two-cent discrepancy on utility bills to the way kids were getting schooled. His most famous moment came when he told the school district he'd bring back corporal punishment if elected to the school board. A local cartoonist referred to Lane as having a "spanking" fetish, which was why he kept running for office and getting drilled. It was an odd, odd year...

Doc, And Columbia, probably 1/2 of which is made up of Mizz U, is the state's icon of progressivism (and actually is a neat place with a lot of festivals and a vibrant downtown).

Gotta look up Henry Lane, who sounds like a lot of Missouri candidates.
