Jimmy “The Rent Is Too Damn High” McMillan


Two years ago Jimmy McMillan ran for govenor and became an instant viral sensation after explaining the platform of his “The Rent Is Too Damn High Party”during a debate that featured future Governor Andrew Cuomo and his main challenger Carl Paladino.

Now McMillan has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2013 New York City mayoral race with a musical anthem and accompanying YouTube video.

“Jimmy McMillan, the political candidate whose slogan represents the one issue that all New Yorkers can agree on–that the rent is too damn high–is running for mayor,” says Animal New York in the introduction to the video.

“It’s been two long years since I been on the scene, now I’m back in the game looking mean and lean,” McMillan sings in the video.

“The race may be different but the message is the same, R.I.T.D.H. is going to change the game!”

“My mustache and haircut are too damn fly!”
