Boy, Oh Boy

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.
