Phil Ochs nailed it decades ago with his song "Cops of the World."
Our boots are needing a shine, boys
Boots are needing a shine
But our Coca-cola is fine, boys
Coca-cola is fine
We've got to protect all our citizens fair
So we'll send a battalion for everyone there
And maybe we'll leave in a couple of years
'Cause we're the Cops of the World, boys
We're the Cops of the World
And if you ever doubted Phil Ochs, Jennifer Epstein (POLITICO) reports
POLITICO runs a photo of "country crooner" (take it up with them) James Taylor. He looks stupid as always. But check out wife number three or four. First off, get a bra that lifts your breasts. When they droop to your waist, you really need to rethink the bra, dear. Second, when you have sections of upper arm fat -- sections, no less -- you don't need to wear a sleeveless dress to a formal (White House) occasion. She is neither an attractive nor well dressed woman but, thing is, she's still out of James Taylor's league.
