“Of Course Hillary Clinton Identifies with Cersei Lannister. They Are the Same Person.”

,

Robby Soave, in Reason, nails it,

What’s the difference between Game of Thrones character Cersei Lannister and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton? One is an entitled narcissist who quietly supported her lecherous husband (whom she clearly loathed) when it was politically convenient, then insisted it was her turn to rule (even though it wasn’t), chose boot-lickers, ass-kissers, and elitist bankers as her advisors while alienating more competent and better-liked people who might have helped her, exacted petty vengeance on imagined enemies, escaped justice and the judgment of the people by destroying her main rival—the charismatic, income-inequality obsessed populist—with an explosive cheat, and was left confused why so many people in her country would rather be ruled by a complete political unknown who tells it like it is.

The other fucks her twin brother.

Each State’s Representative Game of Thrones Character

,

Thrill List consulted with the old gods and the new and came up with pretty good choices. Examples:

Colorado
Jorah Mormont
Athletic, secretly wealthy, with a sun-tanned, weathered face. Incessantly trying to sleep with a younger woman.

Connecticut
Joffrey Baratheon
Rich, bratty, emotionally unnerving. Definitely PG’d at Taft.

Delaware
That guy Ned Stark executes in the pilot
No one remembers that Delaware is the first state either.

Why Ted Cruz Endorsed Trump

, , ,

ted-cruz

Ben Domenech, at the Federalist, explains that Cruz’s unexpected move was indeed a calculated and prudential sell-out.

[Cruz’s change of position] came due to those who had been some of Cruz’s most prominent backers. The Mercer family and Peter Thiel played critical roles in elevating Cruz from a virtual unknown in the state of Texas to knocking off a popular Lieutenant Governor in an extremely competitive primary. Now they are prominent backers of Donald Trump, and the threat of a well-backed primary campaign for Cruz in 2018 was increasingly real, with Rep. Michael McCaul and former Gov. and DWTS star Rick Perry showing themselves to be very competitive against him. Cruz’s former media backers had turned on the populist, and the potential for a well-backed challenger against Cruz in Texas was real. Had Trump lost narrowly to Hillary Clinton, as seems the likeliest outcome today, the timing of Cruz’s race would’ve made him public enemy number one among the Trump crew.

A move by Ted Cruz to endorse Trump in Cleveland wouldn’t have satisfied anyone already opposed to Cruz, but it would’ve seemed like par for the course among all the Republicans who’ve lined up to back the nominee, which now includes all the candidates this cycle except for Jeb Bush and John Kasich. The move to endorse now seems ideologically baseless, because it is. It seems like an act of political self-defense, because it is. And it seems opportunistic, because it is.

GOTStates

Thrillist:

California
King Tommen Baratheon
Blond and easily duped, powerful but clumsy with said power, impressed by girls’ boobs and wacky religions.

Colorado
Jorah Mormont
Athletic, secretly wealthy, with a sun-tanned, weathered face. Incessantly trying to sleep with a younger woman.

Connecticut
Joffrey Baratheon
Rich, bratty, emotionally unnerving. Definitely PG’d at Taft.

Delaware
That guy Ned Stark executes in the pilot
No one remembers that Delaware is the first state either.

Florida
“Mad” King Aerys II Targaryen
Senile, wealthy, paranoid, prone to random outbursts of insanity. Pretty confident that he will eventually turn into a dragon.

Georgia
Janos Slynt
Does not do well in cold weather.

Hawaii
Sansa Stark
Unspoiled and beautiful, until evil outside forces wreak havoc on her. Understandably angry.

Idaho
Mance Rayder
An anti-big government Libertarian with his own militia.

Whole story.

The Dog Ate George R.R. Martin’s Volume VI

,

nedstark01

When April comes around and the new season of Game of Thrones starts running on HBO, the show’s plot line will inevitably proceed past the five books previously published, and the sixth volume, The Winds of Winter, will remain unfinished, unprinted, unbound, and undelivered into readers’ hands.

George R. R. Martin slunk on to the Internet yesterday, looking guilty and making all kinds of excuses.

Look, I have always had problems with deadlines. For whatever reason, I don’t respond well to them. Back in November, when I returned to Northwestern to accept my Alumni Award, I told the Medill students that was why I started writing fiction instead of getting a job on a newspaper. I knew even then that daily deadlines would kill me. That was a joke, of course… but there was truth in it too. …

But I won’t make excuses. There are no excuses. No one else is to blame. Not my editors and publishers, not HBO, not David & Dan. It’s on me. I tried, and I am still trying. I worked on the book a couple of days ago, revising a Theon chapter and adding some new material, and I will writing on it again tomorrow. But no, I can’t tell you when it will be done, or when it will be published. Best guess, based on our previous conversations, is that Bantam (and presumably my British publisher as well) can have the hardcover out within three months of delivery, if their schedules permit. But when delivery will be, I can’t say. I am not going to set another deadline for myself to trip over. The deadlines just stress me out.

I am going back to my stance from last March, before all this. It will be done when it’s done. And it will be as good as I can possibly make it.

Call Ser Ilin Payne, this undoubtedly treason against the realm!
