In the spring of 72 and then again the following year Mike? Kersten ran for King, espousing an Oligarchy. He wore a robe with a Burger King crown and often had his running mate Mr Gray, a cat (pussy to finish the quote), on his shoulder. This is merely the surface of the story. It is worth a thread unto itself.
By the way, his successful campaign the next year was even more remarkable. It featured the Vote Blank strategy and slogan.
