The Downfall: So I'm guessing the whole thing is just going to be derpy derp derp in the rest of the "article."
theorellior: She is? She tries to protect the Meereen from the landed powerbase, and is always looking out for the downtrodden. "Neocon" is not something I'd remotely associate with Daenerys Targareyn.
Drubell: So who's the real llfe equivalent of Joffrey?
suburbanguy: "Sexy, sexy neocon"? No, that does not exist.
theorellior: Klivian: Her answer to every problem is "fark you, I got dragons"Sounds like Neocons to meExcept those really are WMDs.
Skyrmion: DubtodaIll: Skyrmion: DubtodaIll: Skyrmion: Obligatory:[lipstickandpolitics.com image 850x572]Clearly this was made before the end of Season 3 and/or never read the books.With the inclusion of Santorum and Gingrich, you can tell it was made at a certain point in the 2012 Republican Primary season.What stood out to me the most was their association of Obama with Rob Stark.If it came out now in the middle of the NSA controversy, maybe they'd equate him with Varys.
AverageAmericanGuy: I suppose this is something I would have to own a television to understand.
dragonchild: There are a lot of Ayn Rand and Niccolo Machiavelli undertones.
WTF Indeed: No there aren't. There are lots of a Middle Ages royalty references and graphic nudity.
that bosnian sniper: The Prince was Machiavelli's attempt to kiss the de'Medici's asses after having been imprisoned and tortured for supporting the Florentine Republic.
WTF Indeed: Game of Thrones is not a master's course on political warfare.
The Downfall: Well I stopped reading after this: However, Obama is often a bad realist, more Joffrey than Tywin. On the margins, the U.S. gained nothing by irritating Israel and cozying up to Russia, which had supported three UN sanctions resolutions under President Bush. It got less from Assad. The mullahs, now democracy-free, continue to enrich uranium.

what_now: It's a fantasy series involving dragons and magic. Stop trying to make it relevant to politics and enjoy it.
Voiceofreason01: Yeah, the factions in Game of Thrones don't map well to the modern political spectrum.
