Yahoo Watch: Phil Davison

Not every day you see a public official meltdown so thoroughly in their own passion. But, Phil Davison, a Republican in Ohio, had such a meltdown the other day and, thanks to the good folks at Youtube, it has gone viral.

It brought to mind Gov. Howard Dean's famous speech the night he lost the Iowa caucus in 2004. Dean lost the caucus, but his meltdown afterwards cost him any chance at a recovery in the subsequent nomination battle. I post both videos below.
