Ralph Stanley for Barack!

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

Bluegrass legend (and that is exactly the word!) Dr Ralph Stanley endorses Barack Obama in this radio ad that’s airing in Virginia.

“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.”

You can here it here, on TPM Election Central.

Barlow on Obama

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

From John Perry Barlow:

It’s the Stupidity, Egghead…

By now, it should be obvious to you that the same malignant sociopaths who just gutted the greatest economy the world has ever seen –  along with America’s moral authority, the dollar, the Bill of Rights, the Republican Party, Habeas Corpus, the Middle Class, the illusion of our military invincibility, and the very notion of the “truth,”- are seriously trying to extend their stranglehold on the Executive Branch for another 4 years. More amazing still, a majority of us may be dumb enough to let them!

In a way, this is not so surprising. By definition, half the population has below average intelligence. And, while I don’t share my mother’s belief that stupidity is a form of malice, I believe that Idiocracy, in a strange coalition with Plutocracy, is making a serious bid for permanent authority in America. As “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin said, “The people who want English to be the official language of the United States are uncomfortable with their leaders being fluent in it.”

Especially if those leaders are black. There are few things that trouble a down-trodden idiot more than the ascendence of someone he believes has been permanently relegated to a status inferior even to his own strictly on the basis of their skin color. And make no mistake, when people say that Obama is “just a lot of fancy rhetoric” or an “inexperienced elitist,” it is only because they are too cowardly to call him an uppity nigger.

Yeah, you heard me. I used that word, and I’ll use it again, because I believe that making “nigger” the dirtiest word in America has had the perverse effect of legitimizing the racism it stands for. For some time, many supposedly civilized Americans have recognized that, as long as they call black people African-Americans, they can treat them like niggers and no one, including themselves, will notice.

Unfortunately, they’re too dumb to realize that just about all of us are niggers now. Once we’ve anted up 700 billion dollars to replace what the plutocrats on Wall Street have plundered from our economy over the last 8 years, America probably will have a distribution of wealth that will make Mexico look like Sweden. And you and I will be as much members of the Underclass as what used to be called a welfare mother back when we had welfare.

I don’t know that Barack Obama is such a miracle worker that he can begin to fix the mess that Bush and his so-far unindicted co-conspirators have made of our formerly great republic. But he has shown the dignity, intelligence, optimism, and, yes, hope necessary to lead what’s left of America into a future where we’re not so contemptuous of education that we’d think a woman who believes that Alaska has a foreign policy is qualified to be president because she’s born-again and hot.

I know that Barack Obama knows how to pronounce the word “nuclear,” and I’m no longer willing to entrust control over these monstrosities to someone who can’t pronounce their name.

For this and many other reasons, I have extended my full support to Barack Obama and am inviting any of you who can make it to a
