Jimmy McMillan's The Rent Is Too Damn High Party Aint No Tea Party


water cooler logoMove over Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin - here comes Jimmy McMillan. McMillan is running for Governor of New York on "The Rent is Too Damn High Party" ticket.

And, he means business. McMillan schooled his fellow New York politicians yesterday with political deft and charm we haven't seen in generations at the New York Gubernatorial debate Monday night. This is a man on a mission who doesn't give a damn. In this era of America, we are thirsty for politicians who tell it like it is and McMillan more than fits the bill. He has a simple message that's brilliant, simple, and to the point - the rent is too damn high in America. And, his message became the springboard for his own political party - thus The Rent is Too Damn High party.

Christine O'Donnell wants to act the part, but anybody who looks at her checkered past knows she's anything but fiscally responsible. She's fiscally responsible like Bernie Madoff was responsible with with investors' money. Utlimately, O'Donnell comes up short.

Then we have Sarah Palin, the self-proclaimed meat-n-potatoes woman who likes to talk straight to ya. She's also a bush leaguer compared to Jimmy McMillan. Jimmy McMillan

McMillan is the real-life version of Warren Beatty's character Jay Billington Bulworth in the movie he wrote, directed, and starred in called "Bulworth."

Sorry to say it Tea Partiers, but you can't touch Jimmy McMillan. Politicians like him come along once in a generation. Sure, he doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the Gubernatorial election in New York, but he's sure giving us something to talk about in the news. The Phillies probably have a better chance of winning the NLCS against the Giants with their dreadful offense, but you have to hand it to Jimmy; he's a box office draw.

Even if McMillan draws less than 1% of the vote, he'll have a career and be a voice for the working men and women. He's mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

All of you young whippersnappers can create your Youtube mash-ups of "The Rent is Too Damn High guy" all you want, but it won't make Jimmy go away.

Who could disagree with him? The rent really is too damn high in America anymore!
