Jimmy McMillian lost, but his music lives on (Video)

His signature phrase did not win Jimmy McMillian the election for New York's governorship, but it is providing a catchy backdrop to his new released video. "The Rent Is Too Damn High" video dropped yesterday.

McMillian rose to national prominence with his coiffed and sharply suited appearance at the governor's debate in October. It may be of some condolence to McMillian that Andrew Cuomo beat him in the election, as Cuomo did agree during the debate that the rents were too damn high.

This is not McMillian's first foray into music, as his election Web site provided a number of tunes prior to the election, but it is the first time McMillian will have a full album available for purchase on iTunes.

Although the musical path might lead McMillian to more popularity than the election did (he received less than 1 percent of the popular vote), I also want to suggest to him a number of places where he might find a cheaper place to live. Curbly put out a list of the six places in the Unites States where you can still find land for free. I'm not sure how much McMillian would enjoy Marquette, Kan., but the town would offer him a city lot if builds a house there.
