The Meadow Party ran Bill the Cat for President and Opus the Penguin for Vice President of the United States in 1984 and 1988. They did poorly but arguably threw the election both times to the Republicans, siphoning off enough Democratic votes to force the country to suffer under four more years of Ronald Reagan and a thousand points of George H.W. Bush. Because as we all know, the votes that went to the Meadow Party would have otherwise gone to Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis, who were entitled to those votes dammit. I hate those fuckers!
Bhagwan Sree Rajneesh had something to do with the reason the Meadow Party fell apart, but I forget exactly what.
