Things could always be worse

I've come to think that the perspective changes in this song and the "you" is Bob himself. It would make sense since his rage was greatest at himself. He rage could extend to anyone who would love such a person - who is worse - the idiot or the idiot who loves the idiot? He finds no redemption - this is Dylan's "Howl." While it is wretching, it is a masterful performance. This Dylan is gone now.
