Would You Vote For This Man?

After hearing him voice his opinions during last night's New York gubernatorial debate -- maybe. Judge for yourself:

This is Jimmy McMillan, a Vietnam veteran and founder of the "Rent is Too Damn High" Party. He actually received over 2500 votes for New York City mayor last year -- although considering how many people live in NYC, maybe this isn't as impressive as it sounds.

Geocities-style website from 1997 notwithstanding, I like this guy. I have friends who live in the city. I know roughly what they're paying. And yes, the rent is too damn high. Plus, he's incredibly open-minded -- the "you can marry a shoe if you want" comment at the end of the above video is his response to a question on gay marriage.

In addition, he's a karate expert. He has three bronze stars. He wears "debate gloves". And he has a song!

Is it too late to register to vote in New York?
