Bluegrass legend Dr. Ralph
Stanley and his band the Clinch Mountain Boys may be men of constant sorrow
most of the time, but starting yesterday the good Doctor had a different
persona: a man for Barack Obama.
A radio ad that has started airing in the southern section
of the election battleground state Virginia has Stanley giving props to Obama’s
bonafides as a tasty little bit of banjo twang is heard in the background.
in part, “Howdy, friends. This is Ralph Stanley, and I think I know a
little something about the families around here. Barack’ll cut taxes for
everyday folks — not big business — so you’ll have a little more money in
your pocket at the end of the year. I also know Barack is a good man. A father
and devoted husband, he values personal responsibility and family first.”
Boy howdy to that. Thank you, Dr. Stanley. You’re a good man
