Jimmy McMillan is at CPAC

Jimmy McMillan, of the Rent is too Damn High Party, is at CPAC and appears to be quite the celebrity.

Apparently he plans to announce a run for the Presidency this afternoon.

McMillan said he would make an “official announcement” about a presidential run this afternoon, though the young conservatives gathered around him seemed more amused by his presence than concerned about his positions.

    I didn’t know how to categorize this one. Earlier I believe McMillian said he was going to run as a Republican so he can run against Obama.

    Non-Left/Right Parties is where I have been categorizing his Rent Is Too Damn High Party. Since it is his involvement with that party that makes this relevant to IPR, that is where I would categorize it.

    OK fixed.

    I think it is great news he is running. The reason I love that someone like McMillan is running is because I think the presence of characters like him who can get a platform solely based on looks and oratory without any real credentials, sort of pokes a hole in the pompousness and self-importance of the “real” candidates. Imagine Mitt Romney at some point having to share a stage with this guy. I would pay to see that.

    But I do have to give McMillan some credit. If you listen to everything he says, he has some very valid points, and some of his ideas could make a difference….problem is, nobody can seem to get beyond his “punch line”.
