Ralph Stanley and Barack Obama

In the last 24 hours, I have come to realize that my friends fall into two categories: Those who don't know who Dr. Ralph Stanley is and those who understand how cool it is that he's on the air with a radio spot endorsing Barack Obama:
Music intro (R. Stanley Tune)
Ralph Stanley: Howdy, friends. This is Ralph Stanley, and I think I know a little something about the families around here... ...and after the last eight years - I know we all need a change.
Nobody's looking for a handout, but I think we could use a leader that’s on our side, and that leader is Barack Obama.
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 understands that our kids shouldn't have to leave our communities to find work...that's why Barack will make it easier to send your children to college and help create 5 million new jobs by investing right here at home.
I also know Barack is a good man. A father and devoted husband, he values personal responsibility and family first.
So, please join me, Ralph Stanley, in supporting a true friend of the people who live right here in Southwest Virginia. Barack Obama is the change we need.
BO: I'm Barack Obama, candidate for President, and I approve this message.
Narrator: Paid for by Obama for America.
