cock of the walk

i think the most interesting thing about this dixie chicks song is the alt-rock black-clad cosmopolitan packaging. cant you just see the marketing people hard at work rebranding their commodity. i wonder if its actually closer to the truth. and, of course, theres the idea of "a protest song" extruded through a melodic soaring lovesong form. ultimately probably more subversive than all the other protest songs this "war" has fostered. oh, wait, there arent any others.
