I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

po_Paulsen-PatPatrick Layton “Pat” Paulsen (July 6, 1927 – April 24, 1997) was an American comedian and satirist.

Paulsen was notable for his roles on several of the Smothers Brothers TV shows, and for his campaigns for President of the United States in 1968, 1972, 1980, 1988, 1992, and 1996, which had primarily comedic rather than political objectives, although his campaigns generated some protest votes for him.
