Washington Portrait: Vermin Supreme

Vermin Supreme

07/10/09 This is technically not a Washington portrait since it was taken outside the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles in 2000.  Nonetheless, I give you the colorful character of political gadfly and perennial presidential candidate Vermin Supreme.  I have photographed him a number of times over the years; most recently in New Hampshire on Primary Day ’08 where he garnered 41 votes in the Republican primary on a 3 point platform consisting of a Dental Hygiene Law; Flying Monkey Public Safety Assurance Program and an increase in Time Travel Research Funding.

  1. Say Patrick, If I’m not mistaken this very image was used by
    cartoonist Tom Tomorrow, in one of the comic strip panels he drew ( ? ) during the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles .
    August 2000.

    And let’s not forget that Vermin Supreme received 144 votes in the 2004 DC Presidental Primary Proper.
