(Newser) – It's on. Jimmy McMillan of the Rent Is Too Damn High fame says he's running for president in 2012, reports Ben Smith at Politico (who says he normally avoids fringe candidates but couldn't resist this one). "Tell Obama I'm coming after his black ass," the former New York gubernatorial candidate told Revolution Radio. McMillan also pointed out a key difference between him and the president: "He plays basketball, I teach karate," notes Mediaite, which provides audio from the interview. (It's in the gallery.)
