Here's a candidate who feels strongly about the rent (or really financial hardship) in New York.

While many might have expected fireworks at Monday night's New York Gubernatorial debate featuring a clash between Carl Paladino and Andrew Cuomo, much of the real intensity came from the forum's long-shot fringe candidates, and perhaps primarily from Jimmy McMillan, candidate of "The Rent Is Too ---- High" Party.

In the clip below, nicely packaged by the Daily Beast, McMillan can be heard dropping a few of his signature tag-lines, much to the amusement of the audience, the moderators and even Democratic candidate Andrew Cuomo.

"I represent 'The Rent Is Too ---- High Party,'" McMillan started. "People are working 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week and some a third job. Women can't afford to take care of their children, feed their children breakfast, lunch and dinner. My main job is to provide a roof over your head, food on the table and money in your pocket. This is politics as usual, playing the silly game, and this is not gonna happen."

McMillan said the deficit is "like a cancer. It will heal itself." On the issue of gay marriage, he said that "the Rent Is 2 ----High Party feels if you want to marry a shoe, I'll marry you."

As the chief spokesman of the "The Rent Is 2 ---- High Party" McMillan is no political novice. He mounted a campaign for mayor in 2005, and became embroiled in controversy when he blamed his party's primary platform -- the rent being too high -- on New York's Jewish property owners. He's since apologized.
