Today’s fun video: Getting excited about politics. REALLY excited

While some big political races — for president, for governor, for Congress — often bring out strong emotions in candidates, it’s a fact that there are plenty of offices on every ballot that cause voters, and even candidates to yawn. After all, does the average voter know what the county assessor or the state lands commissioner does, let alone feel passionate about who holds the job.

But Phil Davison apparently really, really wanted to run for county treasurer in Stark County, Ohio. How much did he want the chance? Here’s his speech asking for the county Republican Party to nominate him.

Unfortunately for him (and possibly bloggers everywhere) they did not.
