Texas man changes name to ‘Literally Anybody Else,’ launches presidential campaign


Recommended Posts

He’ll face stiff competition from Giant Meteor.


A Texas man legally changed his name to Literally Anybody Else and launched a campaign for president.

Else, 35, was formerly known as Dustin Ebey before beginning his quixotic quest with a legal name change in Tarrant County earlier this year, Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA reported. He said the judge wasn’t amused.

“This isn’t about me, Literally Anybody Else, more so as it is an idea,” he told the station. “We can do better out of 300 million people for president.”


Else said his goal is for people to look at their ballots and see a list of three options: Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Literally Anybody Else.


Getting on the ballot in every state as an independent candidate will be a challenge for Else, who faces tight deadlines and stiff petition requirements.


However, some polls would suggest he could have crucial name recognition. An early March ABC/Ipsos poll found 36% of people believed Trump would do the best job as president and 33% preferred Biden, but 30% picked “neither.”


“People are voting for the lesser of two evils, not someone they actually believe in or support,” Else told WFAA. “People should have the option to vote for someone who resembles and represents them, not the lesser of two evils. I reject that.”


Else has filed with the Federal Election Commission and set up a campaign website to share his opinions. Now he just has to get Everybody Else on board.

I don't think he can actually run for president - he had to get something like 100,000 names behind him first (can't remember exactly how it works but remember seeing this in the news).

So it's more of a protest/awareness thing that out of a nation of over 300 million people, the best they can come up with to lead them is a 74yo criminal or an 81yo.
