'Interviewer Picks The Wrong Obama Supporter to Try To Railroad'
We couldn't pick a better headline than Think On These Things did with this video. The blog, that talks itself up to be "research, commentary, and news on the 2008 Presidential Election with a Pro-Obama Slant" show us this video that has made Derrick, the savvy Obama supporter being interviewed, practically a political YouTube Star. Going by the sobriquet DNA, his locally based "Afropolitan Fusion" style band is Soulfège (check out 'To Be Free' on their MySpace, fresh!)
DNA has started post videos under the band's YouTube account with more of his political talk. Those two vids can be seen below.
