Meet Stark County, Ohio’s Phil Davison: A Politician Who REALLY Speaks His Mind (Video)

Phil DavisonGabe writes on Videogum:

If you ask me, I think that both of the parties are corrupt and more interested in playing politics with each other than they are in making this country a better place for regular Americans like you and me. Now, what I’d like to see is someone who really speaks his mind. Someone with a fragile, broken, possibly diseased mind, really speaking it. Hopefully his face would get all red, and he would be screaming, and people wouldn’t know why he was screaming, because it wouldn’t seem like screaming was necessary, but that’s just it: he has to scream, because his brain is broken! That’s the kind of guy I’d like to send to Washington. Or, not Washington exactly, but the Stark County, Ohio, Treasurer’s office.

      He forgot his “most favorite quote” from Einstein too lol. Also I actually roared when he said “Infestation!!!!” With as much venom and disgust as he could. This should be autotuned. With “infestation” repeated as much as possible.

        oh the irony of goofing up a quote from einstein. his cracking, pubescent voice reminded me of bill murray going off on one of his famous freak outs.

  5. I’d be much more impressed with his raging histrionics if he didn’t have to keep pausing to quietly looking down at his notes.

    that’s it!

  17. Yelling angrily every line of your monotonous, not really even moderately angry speech isn’t normal.
    On meth it is.

  19. Oh yeah…this is the guy you want with his hands on the money and ledger books…Captain CalmNCool.

  21. OK, this is clearly not the best speech you’ll ever hear. But there is still a lot that we can learn from it. I am not a Republican – I’m not even American – and I disagree with many Republican policies. Still, instead of sniping at Davis from the cheap seats, I thought that I would try to analyze his speech from a public speaking perspective to see what we can learn from it.

    It’s easy to criticize and make fun of him, but at least he got up on the stage and took a shot.

    Here’s my take from a public speaking perspective: http://wp.me/pwfa1-1cV

    Super-impose one of Hitlers speeches over that video. Similar style? Similar dominating effect?

    …….although Hitler never sounded like he was crying -mad.

  41. Actually you’ll find if you google him that Phil has been interviewed on his local TV station, as well as Fox and Good Morning America, and he is clearly a highly intelligent, very personable, high energy citizen who clearly cares for his community and has a very strong social conscience. We need more people like him to actually give a xxxx for their fellow citizens, rather than typing nasty comments about other people on the web.
