Mustache Institute Chairman Discusses Jimmy McMillan on TV

Dr. Aaron Perlut, nuclear mustachologist and chairman of the American Mustache Institute, discussed The Rent Is Too Damn High Party gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan on statewide cable TV in New York last night.

AMI has endorsed McMillan for governor, in light of his karate skills and dramatic, poignant mustache.

The show is "Capital Tonight," on Time Warner's Your News New network.

Explaining the endorsement, Perlut says: "Not only is he a karate expert, but he of course is a Vietnam veteran. He wears gloves at all times. And an interesting point about future Gov. McMillan is that all Mustached Americans are actually born with karate skills."

"Interesting," the host replies.
