Karate Master Jimmy McMillan Runs for Gov: 'Rent Is Too Damn High!'

Sporting the most awesome facial hair ever worn by a gubernatorial candidate ... karate master/Vietnam veteran Jimmy McMillan stole the show at the NY debates last night with one simple catchphrase ... "The rent is too damn high."

McMillan -- a representative from the "The Rent Is Too Damn High Party" ... obviously -- already has his own theme song and t-shirt line.

In the clip, captured by our friends at TheDailyBeast.com -- even Andrew Cuomo agreed ... telling the debate moderator, "The rent IS too damn high."
