Boy, Oh Boy

By Sanhita SinhaRoy
Just when you thought this election season couldn't get worse, here comes Republican Rep. Geoff Davis of Kentucky, who recently had this to say about Sen. Barack Obama:

"I'm going to tell you something: That boy's finger does not need to be on the button," Davis said. "He could not make a decision ... related to a nuclear threat to this country."

Ah, what Southern charm!

Davis later apologized for his remarks, but presumably not until after attending a noon lynching.
