Ran across this post by Teresa Nielsen-Hayden while looking for something a little more specific on a possible future job site (sic) and made the mistake of reading through the comments.

I should have known better.

How can you have any kind of a constructive dialogue with people like this, who apparently can't comprehend their native language enough to understand the point of a story written in their favorite genre? "A Colder War" is a simple retelling of the Iran-Contra affair in a world where Lovecraft's nightmares are all too real. That's it. Trying to draw connections between that story and anything in the current political situation here in the E.E.U.U. says volumes about how fucked in the head some people are...and they say the G.O.P. is "the stupid party"? I dunno, maybe this is somekind of rarefied political humor I don't get because I'm the ostensible butt of it, like those "Republicans for Voldemort" items a couple years back, but it seems to me that anyone coming up with a phrase like "Lovecraftian Republicans" doesn't understand Lovecraft or Republicans very well.

Well, that's the conventional wisdom, and I'm usually not on board with that anyway.
