In Case You Missed Jimmy McMillan Last Night


If anyone “won” the gubernatorial debate last night (because New York’s voters definitely didn’t), surely it was Jimmy McMillan, a longtime Daily Intel favorite whose unique facial hair, rapid-fire speaking style, and singular obsession with rent were introduced to many New Yorkers for the first time. These are some of his highlights. (By the way, McMillan “explained” after the debate why he was wearing black gloves: “Don’t forget I was in Vietnam for two and half years and I have three Bronze Stars, but the chemicals of Agent Orange — dioxin and a lot of other chemicals mixed up — I would get sick. When I get home tonight, I know I’m not going to be able to breathe if I take them off. It could be psychological, I don’t know, but I just put em on and wear them anyway.”)
