Politics + Reality TV = this guy

I think this sort of thing is the present and future of politics:


His non-sequiter was delightful:

“As a karate expert, I will not talk about anybody up here. Because our children have nowhere to go.”

Why the bizarre and irrelevant claim of karate ability in the middle of impassioned pleas for the children? Well, he's a smart guy who knows what will get the public's attention. From the Yahoo Buzz Log:

No sooner had McMillan finished listing his credentials as a karate expert (who knows that the rent is too damn high), then his searches started to soar (kind of like the rent). Online lookups for "the rent is too damn high" jumped from nil into breakout status, quickly becoming one of Yahoo's top searched terms.

Don't be surprised to see this guy get his own show in the near future.
