"The past just voted against the future."

The Tweet cited as title for this post is admirably succinct. But the deluge has begun; there is today no shortage of well-written analysis of what has transpired. However I do not feel compelled to link to even the very best of the articles I have come across... there is simply too much out there.

But not all I have stumbled upon counts as eloquent, well-reasoned writing. We have Donald Trump on a visit to Caledonia and typically ignoring anything as inconvenient as facts.

"Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. 
They took their country back, just like we will take America back."

Were it not so incredibly sad, it would be hilarious. And can we be quite sure that we shall not have a President Trump to deal with in November? Is there another disagreeable surprise in store for us in this amazing year?
