Perhaps the whole country now will hear the baby’s stomach growl.
Rent Is Too Damn High gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan, fresh off a surprising 40,000 vote finish, appeared on the Libertarian Internet talk show “Revolution Radio” and announced that he will run for President in 2012.

But what he hasn’t heard yet is that Jimmy McMillan is running for President of the United States of America. Well Barack Obama, you might as well turn your Internet up. Go to the website, President. I want you to look at all the hits Sarah Palin got. I ate her up.Look at all the hits John McCain got. I chewed him up.

McMillan later added that he just registed as a Republican to avoid, presumably, a costly primary fight with Obama.
The announcement comes at around the 49 minute mark. Take a look:
