His name is Jimmy McMillan and he is running for governor of New York as the nominee of the “Rent is Too Damn High” Party. And even with heavy hitters little Andrew Cuomo and Carl Paladino on the stage, Jimmy steals the show.
McMillan, nicknamed Rambo, Papa Smurf, and The Black Hulk Hogan, is a former postal worker and Vietnam War Vet. Jimmy has run numerous times for various offices in New York…but perhaps his most famous escapade was climbing the Brooklyn Bridge and demanding media coverage of his message (about the damn rent) before coming down.
And now there is a Jimmy McMillan action doll. When you pull the doll’s string it says “the rent is too damn high”. But the good new is at $50 bucks a pop for his doll, Jimmy may soon be able to afford his high rent.
What’s the world coming to?
