If you've been tuned into New Hampshire politics for the past few presidential elections, then you've probably heard the name Vermin Supreme.

He's been on the primary ballot for the past three presidential elections and he tends to stand out. He's the only candidate who consistently wears a boot on his head and declares "free ponies for all," as his major campaign platform.
