In October of 2010, in a debate over the Governor’s race in New York, a wild and crazy guy named Jimmy McMillan (announcing that he represented the “Rent is too DAMN High Party) spoke at length about the problems New Yorkers faced in these terribly complicated and difficult economic times. Here we are now, in May of 2011…and we’re all looking at a national average for gasoline prices hovering around the plus/minus sides of $4.00. As bad as rent in NY might be, that ain’t got nuthin’ on what gas prices are doing to all of us in each and every one of the 50 states.
Rep. Dan Benishek, MI-01, in a parody of pure genius, brings a little of McMillan’s spirit to the gas price issue…and has a message for the US Senate and that guy in the White House that isn’t actually PAYING for his own gasoline (as he jets around the country talking about everything BUT gas prices):
Spread this around FAR and WIDE!
