JAN-22-DETROIT, MI – Even deceased, presidential candidate Pat Paulsen managed to garner more votes than Democratic candidate Kucinich in several precincts of Michigan’s January 15th primary.

Paulsen’s two-week Michigan effort to get out the vote on a Democratic ballot that featured Hillary Clinton, Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel, Christopher Dodd and the ultimate second-place finisher, UNCOMMITED, turned out to be a treasure trove of votes for Pat Paulsen.

In spite of the warnings posted by bureaucratic clerks that write-in votes would not be counted in the early Michigan Primary, hundreds of voters, both Democratic and Republican, exercised their conscience and their constitutional right to choose the next president of the United States by writing in Pat Paulsen on Tuesday, January 15, 2008.

“I’m not sure whether it was nostalgia or just a malaise with the useless primary,” said Lincoln Park, Michigan Mayor Frankie Vaslo, “but the Paulsen campaign ran a hard race in Lincoln Park precincts. His strong showing, I am sure, convinced Chris Dodd and Mike Gravel to gracefully exit the race.”

In neighboring Dearborn, the hometown of Henry Ford, Paulsen did even better. “Although we were instructed by the Bureau of Elections not to count write-ins,” said City Clerk Kathleen Buda, “I couldn’t help but notice the reams of write-ins choosing Pat Paulsen.” “I think it was a denial of our civil rights to tell us our votes wouldn’t count,” added Dearborn schoolteacher Dave Higgins, 42. “Pat Paulsen is not of my generation but he holds forth with values and wisdom that are timeless. He got my vote, and many from my friends and family.” Joe Podorsek of Redford Township, a former Motown Records studio musician and close friend of guitarist Ted Nugent, chaired the write-in campaign for western Wayne County. “What better way to show your respect for the teachers who taught you to read and write by using that skill and writing in Pat Paulsen for President.”

In a state where the Democratic and Republican Parties threatened to take away all the delegates for violating national party rules, the supporters of Pat Paulsen in Michigan are looking forward to casting their delegate votes to nominate Pat Paulsen for President. A Pat Paulsen nominating convention is scheduled for early summer in Los Angeles.

    To anyone undecided as to who gets their vote, I offer the wisdom of a wise old janitor I once had the honor of working with: “Pick the one you’d wanta kick back and have a beer with.”
    For me, I can’t imagine time better spent than a beer with Pat.

    Looking at our choice of current candidates, no matter who gets the nomination for either party, I am so disgusted with all of them I will be voting for Pat.

    Wherever he is, I’m sure he’d laugh at how many people have voted for him. 🙂

    I rarely drop comments, but I looked at some of the remarks on PAT PAULSEN BEATS KUCINICH IN MICHIGAN PRIMARY.
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it look like some of these responses come across as if
    they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And,
    if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to
    keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Could you list of the complete urls of all your public pages like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
