‘Rent Is Too Damn High’ candidate announces presidential run
From Huffington Post:
Jimmy McMillan, folk hero, internet sensation, and leader of New York political party “The Rent Is Too Damn High,” recently announced he has his sights set on the White House.
After being catapulted to fame following a quirky yet impressive performance in the New York gubernatorial debates this fall, McMillan attained rockstar status, winning more than 40,000 votes in this year’s New York governor’s race. Now he says he’s ready to take on President Barack Obama in the quest for higher office.
“If you don’t do your job right, I am coming at you,” he said, complaining about the president’s bailout of General Motors. “I know Barack Obama is an Internet hog. I know he knows that I am out there. But what he hasn’t heard yet is that Jimmy McMillan is running for President of the United States of America.”
