Pat Paulsen for President documents the sequence of events that led to the announcement - or more accurately revelation - that the comedian intended to not only run for office, but also had as much support as any other non-affiliated candidate. Although some of the humor is admittedly dated, the presiding sentiments of Paulsen and his supporters have continued to echo.

There was a hit comedy record Pat Paulsen for President in 1968, and then he ran later comedy campaigns in 1972, 1976, 1980, 1988, 1992, and 1996.

Patrick Pat Paulsen begins to answer the question, but something is awry. As the audience roars with laughter, other questions- How do you stand on the question of welfare? and What is your opinion of the current problem of Vietnam? – are asked, but Paulsen can’t seem to give a straight answer  .
