Republican Nominee Phil Davison Delivers Freakout Speech

The Atlantic called the speech of Phil Davison, Republican nominee for treasurer in Stark County, Ohio, "the worst stump speech ever." One thing's for sure: you've never before seen anything like this desperate, freaked-out, rambling appeal. Davison is a 13-year council member in Minerva, Ohio; his current council position is part-time. He wants to establish "a radical branch of the Republican party." Regarding Pastor Terry Jones, who's been threatening a sick Koran-burning stunt in Florida, Davison stated, "I wouldn't do it but I don't condemn him for doing it." Bear in mind as you watch that Davison stated that he has a master's degree in communication:

Davison: I will not apologize for my tone tonight... If nominated tonight I can guarantee with 100% certainty that what you are seeing from me tonight is what everyone else is going to get over the next eight weeks.

I suppose the audience took those words as a warning. Davison did not get the nomination.
