More Satire! Yay!

And now for a blast from the past. One of the first TV programs to use satire was Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the 1960s. A man by the name of Pat Paulsen did a satirical editorial segment on the show.

In 1968, he pulled a Colbert and “ran for President.” (I guess I should say Colbert pulled a Paulsen.)
