"We need more zydeco ..."
"... on the Rachel Maddow Show," MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said last night. Prompting this basic truth - what TV show wouldn't be improved by more zydeco? - was a video she aired of a pro-Obama zydeco song, "Oui, On Peut (Yes, We Can)." You can find it here, and those interested in zydeco will recognize a band that includes Dirk Powell and Christine Balfa of Balfa Toujours, Linzay Young of the Red Stick Ramblers, Zydeco Joe, Jeffery Broussard of the Creole Cowboys, and Corey Ledet.
