‘Papa Smurf’ Rent Is 2 Damn High Political Farce (Video)
October 19, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—The New York gubernatorial debate held last night looked more like a Saturday Night Live skit. With political observers expecting Republican nominee “Crazy” Carl Paladino to get mad as hell and take someone out, he was actually subdued and stayed on policy issues. The only thing out of the ordinary was Paladino’s mid-debate bathroom break. Democratic candidate Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, was equally on message. He is leading Paladino by double digits and barring some last-minute October surprise, he is assured a victory. But the real entertainment on the stage came courtesy of fringe candidates, former madam Kristin Davis and Jimmy McMillan, aka, “Papa Smurf” of the Rent Is 2 Damn High Party. McMillan, with his unique appearance and one liners, such as “The Rent Is 2 Damn High Party feels if you want to marry a shoe, I’ll marry you,” stole the show. What should have been a serious gubernatorial debate turned into the Big Apple Circus.
What is McMillan’s campaign platform? The rent is just too damn high. With his distinctive white beard and black gloves, McMillan led a surreal Kabuki theater aspect to the gubernatorial debate.
And you thought this campaign with mad as hell Carl Paladino couldn’t get any stranger?
