Via TPM: “A Virginia Democrat sends over a new radio spot that Obama is airing in the southern part of the state — it stars homegrown bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley vouching for Obama‘s values and character to the tune of some banjo pickin’ in the background.”
Here’s the ad transcript from TPM:
“Howdy, friends. This is Ralph Stanley, and I think I know a little something about the families around here,” the spot runs.
“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,” he continues. “I also know Barack is a good man. A father and devoted husband, he values personal responsibility and family first.”
Can Stanley bring out the votes?
