Jimmy McMillan is No Laughing Matter

Jimmy McMillan, New York gubernatorial candidate of the Rent is Too Damn High Party, has become an internet sensation with his amusing performance in the New York gubernatorial debate last night.

His performance won him praise at National Review Online. No doubt it didn't hurt that he sang the praises of Ronald Reagan.

But we might want to dig a little deeper before everyone jumps on the Rent is Too Damn High bandwagon.

Why does Jimmy McMillan think the rent is too damn high? When McMillan ran for Mayor of New York in 2005 he blamed Jews for the rent being too damn high. If that wasn't enough he also holds Jews living in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn responsible for harboring al Qaeda and causing the attacks of September 11, 2001.

I can only hope that Jimmy McMillan's fifteen minutes of fame will have used up by election day. He is certainly no laughing matter.
