National Review's Brian Bolduc gets a coveted interview with Jimmy McMillan, the the star of last night's New York gubernatorial debate and leader of "Rent Is Too Damn High" party: 

McMillan refuses to speak ill of his rivals, Carl Paladino and Andrew Cuomo. A veteran of the Vietnam War, McMillan says Paladino “is my brother because he was a captain in the United States Army for five years. I would never say anything negative about him. He told me his credentials backstage before the debate. I didn’t know. I wanted to eat him up. But now he’s my brother.”

McMillan on Reagan:
