Jimmy "Rent Is Too Damn High" McMillan Is Running for Governor Again

Jimmy McMillan, the prodigiously bearded spirit animal of New York City, is running for governor of New York again.

The New York Daily News reports that McMillan filed a petition for candidacy in the November gubernatorial with the state board of elections, hoping to run, of course, on the "Rent is 2 Damn High" party line.

McMillan made his name in the 2010 gubernatorial election—that's him seated next to shady Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo and Carl Paladino in a 2010 debate above—and ran for mayor of NYC last year. This year he'll face off against the winner of the Andrew Cuomo-Zephyr Teachout Democratic primary and Republican Rob Astorino.

Unfortunately, Cuomo has been evasive on the topic of debate lately, so we may not get a chance to see our generation's greatest orator grill him on that ethics report. We'll always have his 2010 performance:
