Subject: RE: Ralph Stanley endorses Barack Obama
You obviously ain't never lived in rural Virginia, Dougie... Hop on the plane... I'll pick you up at Dulles and then give you a personalized tour of the places we are talkin' about... And these folks love the Stanley Brothers... I mean, love...

Remember the movie "Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou"??? Things haven't changed much in rural Virgina from that movie... I'd say "lol" but it ain't... These folks is poor and, yeah, many would never vote for a black man... I talked with one the other day who said that he'd supply the rope to lynch Obama and he wasn't just making a joke... But there are others who have had "enough" with the Republicans...

Keep an eye on Virginia on election night...
