Vote for me, I'm a maniac!

This one has been going around all over the place this week. One Phil Davison wants the Republican nomination for the Stark County (Ohio) treasurer election. And when I say he wants it, I mean he really wants it. Really, really, really wants it.

As if that wasn't funny enough, in the comments, people were posting quotes from other righteous rants. I posted this from Animal House:
Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
To which a genius commenter replied:
@kurinbo The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, idiot. Do yourself a favour, from now on and look everything up on Wikipedia before you voice an opinion. It will lend credence to your side of the argument, and I'm not talking about CCR when I say credence. That level of ignorance is simply unacceptable, and makes you seem less informed than any kid in school... to think that you can likely vote. The Horror. The Horror.
There's really not much you can say to somebody that stupid. Even if one concedes that ignorance of Animal House is acceptable (which I do not), it should have been obvious from a) the movie quotes that other people were throwing around and b) the complete non sequitur nature of my comment that it was a quote from somewhere. But that's just further proof that YouTube has some of the worst (i.e., boring, dumb, useless, etc.) comments on the internet.

(BTW, my only response to him was quoting the next line: "Forget it. He's rolling." Several other commenters gently pointed out his error in typical YouTube comment fashion.)

Oh, and Phil didn't get the nomination. Too bad; it would have been fun to see more of him.
