*Jimmy McMillan, leader of New York political party “The Rent Is Too Damn High,” has just announced his candidacy for President of the United States in 2012, reports the Huffington Post.
After his performance in the New York gubernatorial debates this fall made headlines and flooded YouTube, McMillan earned more than 40,000 votes in this year’s New York governor’s race. Now he says he’s ready to take on President Barack Obama in the quest for higher office.
“If you don’t do your job right, I am coming at you,” he said, complaining about the president’s bailout of General Motors. “I know Barack Obama is an Internet hog. I know he knows that I am out there. But what he hasn’t heard yet is that Jimmy McMillan is running for President of the United States of America.”
McMillan urged Obama to call him up on the phone and invite him to serve in the administration. That scenario aside, McMillan said he would register as a Republican to avoid a primary challenge from the president, a man that he called “a good-looking young guy” that he admired.
“I’m coming after his black ass,” he said of Obama.
McMillan said his greatest strengths include a mastery of social media, an ability to pinch pennies, and inimitable political vision.
And, for those curious about his stance on global warming, McMillan says he isn’t buying Al Gore’s “punk” science.
