Kenneth Keith Kallenbach, RIP:

My buddy Jay informs me that Kenneth Keith Kallenbach has died at 39.

A member of Stern's "Wack Pack", he was like a real life Beavis and Butthead, and is interesting only to folks who are amused by the modern-day "carnival" like atmosphere of the Stern show. Here is the first time Kallenbach was on the Stern show.

Libertarians might be familiar with Kallenbach. While Stern ran for governor of New York under the Libertarian Party ticket, Kallenbach seconded Stern's nomination at the convention after Fred the Elephant Boy. As Nick Gillespie recounted the event:

Kallenbach seemed less interested in the nominating process per se than in sharing personal thoughts with the crowd. After nominating Stern, he produced a large rubber phallus and repeatedly asked the incredulous audience, "Hey, who wants to see my dildo, who wants to see my dildo?"

May he rest in peace.
