Unexpected Momentum

6 Oct

Survey USA has Obama up 53 – 43%.

Suffolk University has Obama up 51 – 39%.

In Virginia.

Then, there’s this ad that’s running throughout Appalachia right now. I have never before heard of Ralph Stanley before, but I guess he’s something of a big deal.

    Ralph Stanley is a bluegrass legend. He performed several of the songs from Brother, Where Art Thou, including ‘O Death,’ for which he won the 2002 grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance.

    Hope that helps.
