Nobody for President!

Nobody keeps all campaign promises
As you read this, Nobody is in Washington working for you
I believe that Nobody should have that much power
I want Nobody to run my life
Nobody bakes Apple Pie better than my mom

Nobody for President 2012

On December 8, 1975, I spoke with Wavy Gravy at the United State Cafe on Haight Street in San Francisco, about voter apathy.

I pointed to statistics showing people were not registering to vote and approximately fifty (50) percent of the people who could vote were not showing up at the polls.

Wavy responded, "You mean Nobody is winning the Presidential elections?"

That question became the spark that ignited the Birthday Party's "Nobody for President Campaign."

Wavy Gravy became "Nobody's Fool," Curtis Spangler, became "Nobody's Campaign Manager," and the rest is history!
