As heard on the PBS NewsHour: A long time ago, he said he'd dreamed "a crazy dream." He said he'd dreamed he was walking through World War III!
So it was for the (very) young Dylan, as reported in 1963.
Last night, we also thought we'd dreamed a dream. We dreamed we were watching the PBS NewsHour, and someone identified as "acting director of the White House Domestic Policy Council" told Judy Woodruff this:
WOODRUFF (10/27/20): Let me also ask you about a health care plan.
WOODRUFF: The president has been saying, since he was elected, that he will present a health care plan to the American people. We're now almost four years later. There still isn't one. Why not?
ROLLINS: Judy, that's actually not—that's not true. He rolled out his Great American Health Care Plan on September 24 in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is on the White House Web site. It talks and walks through lower costs, better care, more choice for all Americans and how he will do that, expanding health savings accounts, telemedicine—
By now, you can probably see why we thought we were dreaming!
At that point, some CROSSTALK occurred. But then, the dream rolled on:
WOODRUFF: But it hasn't been presented to the Congress in the form of a formal proposal.
ROLLINS: Well—well, what his plan is is what he's presenting to the American people. He's tried to move things through the Congress. Of course, with the stalemate, it hasn't been possible.
"What his plan is is what he's presenting to the American people." The whole conversation bore the unmistakable feel of a dreamscape.
The dream continued from there. As noted, we dreamed we heard these unusual statements on last evening's NewsHour.
Was it just a dream, or did that exchange really happen? At first, we assumed it had to have been a dream because the claims seemed so implausible.
We start with the implausible claim that someone is advising Trump on matters of domestic policy.
We move on to that alleged person's claims—the claim that Trump does have a health care plan; the claim that he rolled it out in September; and the fuzzy semi-claim that he tried to get his health care plan through Congress.
Even Trump hasn't made these claims when he's been questioned about this matter by people like Savannah Guthrie and Kristin Welker in recent weeks. But here was an acting director named Brooke Rollins, making these unusual claims as Judy Woodruff looked on.
Today, we looked at the PBS NewsHour site. A transcript for this conversation actually does appear at the site, along with full videotape. We realized then that this wasn't a dream—that this exchange did occur.
That said, is it true? Did Trump roll out a Great American Health Care Plan on September 24? Very frankly, Woodruff didn't seem a whole lot clearer about this claim than we were!
Tomorrow, we'll show you what we discovered when we decided to fact-check our dream. Also this:
In another "snapshot from the edge," we'll show you how Lesley Stahl questioned Donald J. Trump about the absence of a health care plan when she interviewed him for 60 Minutes last week.
We'll show you the questions Stahl asked in the unedited interview. After that, we'll show you the dumbed-down version of the interview the suits aired on Sunday night.
The extremely young Bob Dylan dreamed he was walking through World War III. Speaking of dreams, do we actually have a "national discourse" at this extremely late date?
Tomorrow, we'll show you the questions Stahl asked. After that, we'll show you the Potemkin-flavored tapioca her bosses put on the air.
We'll even show you a little bit more of what Woodruff put up with last night. At this point, do we have anything like an actual discourse at all?
Eh, dear Bob, where's the obligatory Orange Man Bad dembottery filler in this post?ReplyDelete
Calling the Commander 'insane', and all that?
Sloppy, sloppy work, dear Bob. It'll certainly slow down your advancement in the dembot hierarchy.

By the way, dear Bob, are Miss Woodruff's virtues, in your opinion, a more important topic in the area of media criticism than your liberal goebbelses' totalitarian suppression of information pertaining to your Rapist Mafioso candidate's influence peddling enterprise?ReplyDelete
Please advise, dear Bob.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.Delete
A Right-winger pretending corruption makes them feel icky.
What next, pretending treason against the United States of America keeps you up at night?
You're a hoot.
"Miss Woodruff's virtues" -- sounds like a porn title or a regency romance novel.Delete

I don't understand why Somerby cannot write a straightforward essay, with an actual point. First he makes an allusion to Bob Dylan's song, which has nothing to do with Trump or health care, but raises the issue of whether anything Somerby is describing is real or not. Why? For no good reason. Then he says he will tell us later what questions were asked in two separate interviews, neither of which is presented by Somerby in THIS essay. And, of course, he reaches no conclusion except to repeatedly state that no one apparently knows how to ask questions. And Somerby keeps referring to Trump's health plan but he describes someone named Brookes, who is a supposedly a policy advisor, but who may or may not exist, and may or may not have anything to do with what is supposedly on Trump's website, which we don't know is real or not.ReplyDelete
What a huge mess Somerby has written today. It is about the ugliest piece of writing I've ever read, and I doubt Bob Dylan would want his name to appear anywhere near it. But he doesn't have any choice, does he, since Somerby feels free to grab and repeat whatever he chooses as a rhetorical device (using that term loosely). Somerby today has reached a standard worse than Mao's mumblings.
Does Trump have a health plan? Of course he doesn't. And since the Republicans were in control of both the House and Senate in 2017, Trump has no excuse for failing to pass a health care bill. If Somerby thinks confusing people is going to help elect Trump, he is wrong. Democrats don't believe garbage just because someone has tried to confuse them. Not authoritarian enough, to begin with, and mistrustful of Fox and anyone else trying to make unrealistic promises. Stop making no sense, Somerby. I think David Byrne and The Talking Heads said that.
I want to testify on how I got cured from Herpes. I have been living with this disease for the past 11 months, i have done all i can to cure this disease but all my efforts proved abortive until i met an old friend of mine who told me about a herbal doctor called Dr Oniha, she told me that Dr Oniha have cure for all kinds of diseases, though i never believed in it because my believe was that there is no cure for Herpes disease. But I decided to give it a try when I contacted Dr Oniha, he told me he has a cure for herpes that he cured with herbal medicine. I order for the herbal medicine, which Dr Oniha sent to me through a courier service which i make use of and now behold the herpes is gone and i now have my life back,if you are out there living with this disease i will like you to also contact Dr Oniha and get this disease cured out of your body.

Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD have told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. Late on at night, Feb 13 2017, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. i reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
