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.
The Name Is Too Damn Cool
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.
—Jimmy McMillan, on gay marriage
—Jimmy McMillan, he hates the Jews, just like everyone else does.
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.
Despite his strong internet presence, Jimmy McMillan and The Rent Is 2 Damn High party were unable to muster actual votes, falling far short of the 50,000 needed to earn an automatic slot in the next election cycle. Jimmy is now Running for President, and has been nominated as a canidate in the online Primary at Americanselect.org.
