Love Me, Love Me, I’m a Liberal — Phil Ochs

 

There are contemporary versions of this song which update the references to the political characters of the time. Ochs did this song about the same time that C Wright Mills was warning the Left about the “Corporate Liberals” who love to talk the talk but weren’t available to walk the walk. Today this could be the Obama theme song.
