Witness the awesome power of American diplomacy, wielded by… James Taylor.

Why, then: this is Hell, nor are we out of it. – C. Marlowe.

I don’t know how the Onion managed this. Or Cracked.com.  Or the Washington Free Beacon.  Any of the Usual Suspects, really.


It took a while to find a member of the mainstream media who wasn’t on suicide watch over this, but here you go: “That time John Kerry got James Taylor to sing ‘You’ve got a friend’ to France.” …Great headline, huh? You don’t even need to read the rest of it. No, really, you don’t even need to read the rest of it. Doing so will blast your sanity as you realize that this happened. This is not faked. This is where we are, today, January 16th, 2015*.

I know.  I know. I would really, really prefer that this was faked, too.  But we can’t always get what we want… NO!  Secretary Kerry, PUT DOWN THAT PHONE!

  1. Nothings tells your girlfriend “I’m sorry your family was slaughtered right in front of you.” like a mixtape…..

  2. Let me reiterate my support of “Muskrat Love” for all situations such as this, although I think the old “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” Coke commercial would have worked as well.

  3. Nothing like advertising that your old and outdated. Did they have to Taylor out of a retirement center?

  4. That Kerry gets the French so well. This is just the sort of comic antics they enjoy, that they need to lift their spirits.
    If I were the French, ‘music’ combining English lyrics and the acoustic guitar would be causes belli. Of course, if I were the French, the rest of Europe would have wiped out France from disgust. (My sensibilities about food are completely opposite those of the French.)
