The button satirically combines H. Ross Perot's 1996 US Presidential campaign slogan, "Americans for Perot," with a joke, "United We're Nuts," from a segment on late night talk show host David Letterman's television show. Letterman's segment, a top ten list titled "Top Ten Rejected Names for Ross Perot's Political Party," aired on September 26, 1995 and the joke was number nine.  

Perot was a third party candidate in the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections. In both elections, he did not receive any electoral votes, but did receive 19% and 8% of the popular vote, respectively. He ran as an indepentent candidate in 1992, however in 1996 he ran as a candidate for the Reform Party.
