Appeal We Can Believe In

The Boston Globe's Charles Pierce draws our attention to the fact, in just the past week alone, pro-Obama recordings have been made by both the funkmaster drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, which we believe to be the greatest evidence of crossover appeal on the part of a politician since we started keeping track of such things. (Though it's entirely possible that Stanley is just striking back at McCain for unauthorized use of his music at campaign rallies.)
