Thought for the Day

"I have been too much of an idealist about America, had set my hopes too high, had formed too fair an image of what she might become. Never had a nation such an opportunity; she was the hope of the world. Never again will any nation have her chance to raise the standard of civilization."

- Charles Eliot Norton

My name is Phil Davison and I'm MAD AS HELL

Sarah Palin hasn't said yet whether she will be running in 2012, but if so, her running mate should be Republican Councilman Phil Davison of Minerva, OH. Here he is trying to convince his audience that he is the right choice for Stark County treasurer. It is the funniest (unintentionally) speech I have ever come across, and I immediately switched by party affiliation to "(R)".

As Davidson rightly says, politics is about winning, or rather: "POLITICS IS ABOUT WINNING!!" The kicker: he has a masters' degree in communication - as one commenter said, probably from the University of Mordor...
