Charles Stross, Proving That, Even Given How Crazy Trump Is, It's Still Possible To Over-React

   Must be spending too much time on Metafilter.
   So I'm going to go way out on a limb here and make a prediction: Trump is not going to go after Jews.
   Jeez get a grip. Dude is bugshit. It's not even possible to properly complain about all the nutty things he's actually done or might actually do. But even in this target-rich environment, lefties can't resist the urge to pretend that he's crazier than he actually is. It's like no actual righty is as crazy as the left wants him to be.
   Trump is plenty crazy for me. I feel no urge to pretend that he's worse than he is. In fact, I'm kinda trying to convince myself that he's not as bad as I think he is, because it's freaking me out.

   (None of which alters the fact that I think The Atrocity Archive kicks all kinds of ass, and I've read it like four times. I read every Laundry novel as soon as it's available. Even the last one, the one that (a) didn't have Bob in it, but (b) did have some gratuitous social justicing.)

   And et, tu, Drum?
   Y'all better pace yourself or it's gonna be a long four years (or nine months*).

(*I'm sticking with my prediction of: ragequit before November, probably in order to avoid impeachment.)

I suspect the Reichstag fire analogy isn't so far off as all that. I do not know what Trump's response would be to a significant terrorist attack on US soil would be, but I suspect it would be very bSpad indeed.
