Video: The greatest stump speech ever

posted at 6:12 pm on September 9, 2010 by Allahpundit

A desperately needed reprieve from the news via Political Wire. On any other day, this guy would be too high-strung to qualify as a palate cleanser. But look around you; we’re in the ninth circle of news hell today. Why, under the circumstances, our man Davison represents a bona fide island of sanity.

Dude, three words: 2012. Convention. Keynote.

Can you imagine Phil Davison at your door, asking for your vote in the upcoming election? Dare you say “no?”

Awesome.

I really needed a laugh.

swamp_yankee on September 9, 2010 at 8:32 PM

I kept waiting for the attendant with the tranquilizer dart.
Masters in Communication? They were probably too scared to fail him.

“..and an MBA in communications..”

Roger that.

The War Planner on September 9, 2010 at 8:54 PM

Buspirone. Get him some, quick!

mr.blacksheep on September 9, 2010 at 9:01 PM

“A master’s degree in communication DAMN IT.” I am falling apart laughing at this. HuffPost must love this too, unfortunately. “INFESTATION!”

leftnomore on September 9, 2010 at 9:02 PM

What is great about this bozo? He admits to being a career politician. Retire him. The American political system was never designed for career political hacks.

paulsur on September 9, 2010 at 9:07 PM

Hmmmmmm, nobody has brought up the Chris Farley influence yet.

ExpressoBold on September 9, 2010 at 9:28 PM

Ok, democrats/libs/progressives make me feel like that too.

tinkerthinker on September 9, 2010 at 9:31 PM

Only a first class asshole would delight in (or show) a person having a nervous breakdown.

Only a first class a$$hole would delight in (or show) an obscure person having a nervous breakdown.

He sounds like Bill Murry in Scrooged.

ExpressoBold on September 9, 2010 at 9:28 PM

Two and a half hours before you, Espresso. You skimmed too quickly.

Does he live in a van down by the river? Perhaps he has worked as a motivational speaker in the past?

Grunt on September 9, 2010 at 6:53 PM

Tzetzes on September 9, 2010 at 10:01 PM

You don’t know jack squat, and he lives in a van down by the river!

Know It All on September 9, 2010 at 10:06 PM

So I take it, his campaign headquarters is “in a van, down by the river”?

pjean on September 9, 2010 at 10:13 PM

Dude; One word; “Decaffinated.”

Star20 on September 9, 2010 at 10:37 PM

…and a MASTERS DEGREE IN COMMUNICATION!!!!1

bitsy on September 9, 2010 at 10:47 PM

Tzetzes on September 9, 2010 at 10:01 PM

Dang it! I searched the text on “Chris” and “Farley” but not “river” or “motivational” or “speaker.” I did miss it.

ExpressoBold on September 9, 2010 at 10:49 PM

Reminds me of one of Mick Foley’s old ECW promos.

krabbas on September 9, 2010 at 10:49 PM

I’m ready to go out and win superbowl now.

tommer74 on September 9, 2010 at 10:53 PM

Dude, three words: 2012. Convention. Keynote.

Sorax on September 9, 2010 at 11:19 PM

Dude….

…you flubbed the ending.

“WHATCHA GONNA DOOOOOOOO, BROTHER, WHEN PHILA-MANIA RUNS WILD ON YOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUU?!”

*cue “Real American” on the PA*

SuperCool on September 9, 2010 at 11:33 PM

meh

It would have been better if he had pounded his fist on the podium throughout.

Joe Caps on September 9, 2010 at 11:41 PM

Infest-ATION

painesright on September 9, 2010 at 11:50 PM

Now I’m dizzy.

A for passion

E for communication/presentation

Schadenfreude on September 9, 2010 at 11:52 PM

This guy is freaking insane. LOL LOL

GW_SS-Delta on September 9, 2010 at 11:55 PM

On a positive note I would love to be at the victory party with this guy. Instant mega party.

Mojave Mark on September 10, 2010 at 12:12 AM

Phil Davison you are awesome! I am tempted to empty my savings account to bankroll your campaign.

TDBURN on September 10, 2010 at 12:35 AM

It’s fiscal rage boy.

Maybe nobody told him it was a job interview?

Merovign on September 10, 2010 at 12:50 AM

Davison: “I picked the wrong week to give up lithium.”

==============================================================

“and a Masters in COMMUNICATION!!!!”

==============================================================

Holy Howard Dean meltdown, Batman.

hillbillyjim on September 10, 2010 at 1:15 AM

Ethos
Pathos
Logos

3 things I learned in speech class.

This guy’s definitely got the pathos. Maybe some ethos. Logos? Not so much.

BowHuntingTexas on September 10, 2010 at 3:37 AM

Ahhhhh. Passion.

But, no substitute for sanity . . .

BigAlSouth on September 10, 2010 at 6:29 AM

This is a preview of what all evening anchors on MSNBC will look and sound like around 7pm on November 2, 2010.

Imagine Ed Schultz
Imagine Chrissy Matthews
Imagine Keith Olbergoebbels
Imagine Richard Maddow
Imagine Lawrence O’Donnell

Man, this is getting fun…….

adamsmith on September 10, 2010 at 7:51 AM

I’m Gumby, dammit!

SagebrushPuppet on September 10, 2010 at 8:08 AM

Never go full retard.

DailyDanet on September 10, 2010 at 10:21 AM

I think there was a typo early on in his career. “All politics is loco.” Que lastima.

DailyDanet on September 10, 2010 at 10:23 AM

I have bipolar disorder and can’t watch all of this. It might trigger an episode. Sheesh. He either needs meds or a job with Glenn Beck.

He has a sociology degree. He is exhibiting a histrionic personality disorder.

seven on September 10, 2010 at 10:40 AM

Next he will be doing commercials for NHRA events

J_Crater on September 10, 2010 at 11:19 AM

He says he’s a republican but I was waiting for Howard Dean’s scream.

shick on September 10, 2010 at 3:17 PM

GO GO GO! Is there nothing more worth getting riled up about than running for county treasurer? I say not!

shick on September 10, 2010 at 3:20 PM

Did I see a straight jacket hanging on a coat hook at one point?

Jarhead68 on September 10, 2010 at 4:51 PM

I think he really got his inspiration from Dwight Schrute.

Schrute/Davison in 2012!
