Hillary Clinton: Idiot Wind

With apologies to our Nobel Prize-winning poet laureate, Bob Dylan.  Somehow he knew about Hillary Clinton back in 1974:

Donald Trump’s got it in for you, he’s planting stories in the press / Your only hope is that he’s cut down quick, but when that will be, you can only guess ….

They say you took all of Haiti’s aid, and the Foundation hid it in your stash / Now you’re worth a billion bucks, you and Bill are no longer white trash / You can’t help it if you’re lucky ….

Idiot wind blowing every time you move your mouth / Blowing down the backroads heading south / Idiot wind every time you move your teeth / You’re an idiot, babe / It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe ….

I woke up on the roadside daydreaming about the way things used to be / Visions of the Founders shoot thru my head and help me to remember our history / You hurt the ones I love best and cover up the truth with lies / One day you’ll be in the ditch, flies buzzing around your eyes / Blood on your saddle …

Idiot wind blowing through the flowers on your tomb / Blowing through the curtains in your room / Idiot wind every time you move your jaws / You’re an idiot, babe / Even Glenn Beck can’t save your cause …

It’s your progressive crap that pulls us down, and your lyin’ ways that tear us all apart / You sold your office down the line, but you managed to hide it all in Chappaqua / Soon everything’s gonna be upside down, as a matter of fact your wheels will stop / You somehow think what’s bad is good, you’d kill truth if you ever reached the top / Got to keep you on the bottom …

Idiot wind blowing like a circle ’round my skull / From the hills of Arkansas to the Capitol / Idiot wind blowing every time you give a speech / You’re an idiot, babe /That orange hair man’s gonna put you out of reach.

Here’s the original, one of Dylan’s finest tracks, from a bootleg video of the 1976 Rolling Thunder concert tour:  http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4k2dst
