Mort Sahl was a  comedian in the 1950s-80s who satirized presidents and presidential candidates. He revolutionized comedy because his comedy routines jumped around sporadically even when he was telling a story. During the 1960 presidential election he said "Vote No for President - let's keep the White House empty for another four years" as an attack on President Eisenhower and his perceived ineffectiveness.
