During the 2010 NY Governor's race, a challenger appeared. Jimmy McMillan, the well-mustachioed black man from NYC is running on The Rent Is Too Damn High ticket, and is almost certain to be a spoiler in this hotly contested race. He laid out his platform during the NY1 debate.


   
 
I represent The Rent Is Too Damn High party. People workin' 8 hours a and day 40 hours a week and some a third job. Women can't afford to take care of their children, feed their children breakfast lunch and dinner. My main job is provide a roof over your head, food on the table and money in your pocket. This is politics as usual, playing the silly game, but its not gonna happen. The Rent Is Too Damn High movement, the people I'm here to represent can't afford to pay their rent. They're being laid off right now as i speak. They can't eat breakfast lunch or dinner. Listen! Someone's stomach child stomach just growled, did you hear it? Gotta listen like me. Let's talk about the issue! People can't afford to pay the rent are starving. Rent is too damn high.

The Name Is Too Damn Cool[edit]

Jimmy mad as hell 2c.jpg

Originally the party's name was "The Rent is Too Damn High" however due to the character limit on the ballot, the 'Too' was changed to the numeric, '2'. Read the Court Order for yourself.

Notable Quotes[edit]

   
 
As a karate expert, I will not talk about anyone up here, because our children cannot afford to live anywhere. Nowhere, there's nowhere to go. Once again, why? You said it, 'cause the rent is too damn high.
 

 
 

—Jimmy McMillan


   
 
If you want to marry a shoe, I'll marry you.
 

 
 

—Jimmy McMillan, on gay marriage


   
 
After the world fought hard to free the Jewish people from the hands of Hitler. They should be shame of themselves for discriminating in housing against the people in the State of New York especially in the city of Brooklyn.
 

 
 

—Jimmy McMillan, he hates the Jews, just like everyone else does.

Resumé[edit]

Jimmy is a ninja. Even before he graduated from Private Investigator school in 1989 he was in Vietnam during the Vietnam War looking for John McRage who was being held by the VC.

The Soundtrack[edit]

MS Paint your way to the top.

A visit to the official website provides an excellent atmosphere of Jimmy's well-produced music. You can purchase CDs of his (political) party-themed hits, such as "Rent is Too Damn High" and local favorite "Rent is Too Damn High", as well as his club hit "Let's Party (Rent is Too Damn High)". His music and album art keep up with his impressive web design integrity, featuring skillfully chosen layouts and exotic fonts. Produced in Windows Sound Recorder and other professional software, the constant clipping and hiss are SURE to sway you over to the Rent Is Too Damn High party. He's convinced enough of this to feature his tracks as auto-play on his website.

But srsly, he has ten or so 'Music CDs' for purchase on his site, and about half of them start with, what else, "Rent is Too Damn High"; on a bed of beats made with a Casio keyboard from 1992. It's tough to say for sure, but it's suggested that his motive is to display that his lack of musical talent and equipment stems from the fact that his rent is less than reasonable, and therefore the most logical way to discourage his musical diarrhea and remove it from the internet is to lower rent city-wide.
