And if you were wondering if he's just a guy with a slick beard and black gloves, well...he OWNED the one and only NYS Gubernatorial Debate the other night. Outshining the likes of favored political son Andrew Cuomo and Republican badass Carl Paladino. Jimmy showed them who the real badass is. Well, most of them. Former madam Kristin Davis provided some badass moments herself. When asked about the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority), she compared it to her former business. Except that she kept one set of books, was always on time and she kept her customers happy.
OK, I think I found two candidates I can support.
But back to Jimmy McMillan. This guy is a Vietnam Vet who has been preaching his words on the streets of NYC for years. The word? The rent is too damn high, of course. He tried to steer each issue back to his party's titular (hehe) platform. Nothing going on but the rent, as it were. Oh, he weighed in on different issues at times as well. When asked about gay marriage, he responded "The Rent Is 2 Damn High Party feels if you want to marry a shoe, I'll marry you." I don't know about you, but this could lead to all kinds of escalation. Once gays are allowed to marry their shoes, what's next? Leather pants? Feather boas? Tiaras? But I digress...
Check out my man Jimmy's highlights from the debate. If Saturday Night Live doesn't make a parody of this to start their show this weekend, I'll eat my shoe. Wait...would that be grounds for divorce?
