Dylan on Obama: zzzzzzzzzzzz…

Thanks to Jon Ford:

“The new bit of Bill Flanagan’s Dylan interview, now on bobdylan.com, though mainly trite, has fuelled another media scrum on what Bob thinks about Obama.

“After supposedly endorsing Obama last summer, Dylan has now supposedly withdrawn his support.

“But Dylan uses words carefully: I don’t think he either endorsed or has withdrawn support for the new US President.

“The really telling comment was his dismissal of ALL politicians as entertainers in an earlier part of the interview.

“zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz… who cares anyway?

“Dylan’s art will still be celebrated long after Obama (and Bush… Clinton… Blair… Thatcher… Chirac… Kohl et al) has become a footnote in history. He shouldn’t give them unwarranted credibility by even discussing them”
