    I see Bolton and I’m thinking John R. is joining Zed in the graybeard rear guard…but alas. I know nothing and care less about GoT, and so have to take my heroes wherever and however I can imagine them.

  • B Woodman

    I think I need to catch up on the latest dirt “news”. Who did what to whom, where, and for how much??
    Sounds like the usual Libtard accusations, trying to bring a good Repub down over nothing.

    • capn

      Sorry B Woodman … if it doesn’t influence the rent level or the local food prices I don’t much care.
      I have enough to do to “Live Free”. (ala Claire Wolfe)
      What the rich folk are doing to each other isn’t the least bit interesting to me.
      YMMV

      Now the new set of “regulations” that Obummer wants the new AG to set up do concern me.

      Got Ammo?

  • HB

    Bah! Skye is worked up about some rich bitch who wants to kill/destroy some rich prick and she ends up getting screwed by him….screwed royally!!

    OTOH—Sam and Zed are just fine with each other and their style of Lovin’ is their own for other good people to admire and act upon. 😛 or

  • I must be ignorant — WHO is Sansa Stark? Any relation to Iron Man?

    • KenH

      No, but at this point I bet she wishes she was…..:P

      Plus, they about 3 weeks behind. We moved on to human sacrifice as the nasty now…

    • Gideon Reed

      I think this is posssibly a reference to a “transJenner” kinda thing. No?
      OK. No.
      I guess I’ll go back to Hickok45 on You Tube where I apparently belong.

    This is Game of Thrones. Not John Bolton, UN Ambassador, as one prior commenter might be thinking.

    • Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder

      oh, a television show thing.
      never mind.

    • Duke of URL

      Thank you, SteveinCO. I couldn’t make sense out of the strip. So it’s something from some tv show, huh?

      • SteveInCO

        I couldn’t make much sense of it either, but then…although I’ve read the books, I haven’t seen the current season of Game of Thrones.

    Okay, I guess someone has to explain. Sansa Stark is the daughter of Ned Stark who was the Hand of King Robert. Robert died from an unfortunate hunting accident and his “son” Joffrey became king. Joffrey’s real father was his uncle Jamie. Ned was set up, found guilty of treason, and executed by beheading in front of his two daughters Sansa and Arya. Arya escaped King’s Landing (the seat of royalty) but Sansa was betrothed to the king Joffrey who is a right little shit. Sansa is emotionally tortured by Joffrey ending up married to his uncle Tyrion who is a dwarf. Joffrey is poisoned and dies horribly. Stanza is smuggle out of King’s Landing by Little Finger the Brothel Keeper and Intelligence officer. Sansa is taken to her aunt’s castle the Aeyrie where Little Finger marries her aunt and then throws his new wife from the opening in the recieving hall overlooking a 1,000 foot drop. Little Finger takes Sansa to Winterfell which is her ancestral home and is sold into marriage to Ramsey Bolton the bastard son of Roose Bolton. Ramsey is known for skinning men and women alive. So Ramsey marries Sansa to solidify control of Winterfell and the people that belong to the citadel. Still with me? On their wedding night (and this is what really burns Senator McCaskill’s ass) Ramsey orders Theon (whom he castrated and emasculated) who he now calls Reek, to watch as he mounts Stanza forcibly from behind (she is still a virgin) after tearing her dress up the back. This is important because Theon was raised alongside Sansa as a sort of brother because he was a hostage to his father’s good behavior.
    So beheadings, open sex, full frontal nudity, torture, and being skinned alive is okay with the left but don’t let a brutal husband take his wife by force who by the way didn’t say NO, run away, or resist other than by freezing up and allow it to happen. Any questions?

    • Paladin

      OK….I only caught the 1st season. Now I’m up to date. I doubt I’ll watch the other seasons. It started out OK for me, but lost it with the Zombies, dragons and such. Thanks for the update.

    • Gideon Reed

      Thank you for all of your work and explanations, however,….I believe I will continue to watch pre recordings of Chip and Joanna’s “Fixer Upper”.

  • Calvin

    After a couple of hours of thought I came up with this; the democrats relate to social media and memes better than we do. I know, we have important things to do but there are many people out there who only relate to the world based on what was on TV last night. Case in point, too many people here have concept of Game of Thrones. I’m not saying that everyone has to be up to date on the comings and goings of fictional characters but if you were in a loosely run debate with Senator Claire and she pulled this Ramsey Bolton rape out of her ass…you had better have some kind of response or people will think that you are out of touch. Serious debate is now about punch lines, tag lines, and maybe even an occasional double meaning. How many of you have contacted Spike TV about censoring Clinton Eastwood’s comment on that Jenner guy?

    • NotYetInACamp

      Dada endowed debate performance is the new national standard.
      Insane. Well, the nation is also insane. Merit is lost. Feeling without facts rule so much now.
      Our colleges deemed best. Vote it before you understand it. They meant well, supposedly. Someone may have understood them, but their source is all that appears judged. At about 1:06 or 1;08 is the winner’s performance where she emotes to victory.

      You high school debate team would not even be considered. Nor any moot court team’s argument.

      This shows how the national debate has been raped.

      • NotYetInACamp

        I just read the articles updates. They expand the discussion and address some of your points. People. Prepare power. Logic and reason have lleft the building (world). The world is back to pre-American thought and methods. Major transformations have occurred.

        CEDA, a type of debate. Seems more like mental masturbation to me. I asked by 22 year old nephew (a Parliamentary style debater fixin to attend George Mason U grad school) to explain and his response was in part “CEDA is an incredibly fast-paced and increasingly-critical style that often goes outside the boundaries of the debate to challenge issues that are called “pre-fiat” (which essentially translates to “more important to the debater than the topic itself”). This was an example of a unique and – again, hypercritical – argument that explains the deep-rooted issues of privilege imbedded within the very white male-dominated activity of debate.

        Holy crap. Now all the lying and nonsense coming out of Josh Earnest’s and Marie Harf’s mouths make sense. They’ve turned everything into a meaningless manipulative exercise that has noting to do with furthering understanding or knowledge about a topic. They, and the politicians they serve are more important than the substance of the duties and responsibilities they are supposed to fulfilling.

  • Bill G

    Thanks for the recap on GOT, Calvin. Way over my head. I do read a lot of fantasy (although not the NYT variety) but that never grabbed me.
    Basically it seems to come back to the fact that the left does not care ‘Who could do what, and with which, and to whom’ unless a conservative’s reputation and life can be ruined.
    And there, of course, no facts are needed, only an accusation.

  • gafling

    WTF is Game of Thrones … a TV show? Haven’t had the pleasure … or more accurately haven’t made the time.

    I agree with ‘capn’ – if you spend time watching that stuff you may need to consider realigning your priorities.

    • eon

      Right now I’m reading Medieval Weapons; An Illustrated History of Their Impact by Kelly Devryes and Robert O. Smith, from the Weapons and Warfare series. The history of Europe’s monarchies, especially the Carolingian dynasty, makes this GoT stuff look like party-games for the under-fives. And of course, it was real, and strongly influenced European history. In fact, It still does so today, mainly because it was largely responsible for the borders of modern European nation-states.

      You want drama, intrigue, and violence up to and including open warfare, and all fought with pre-gunpowder weapons? Look up the history of Charlemagne’s reign, and what happened at his death when he tried to divide up his kingdom equitably between his sons.

      The Carolingian Succession Wars make GoT look like tiddlywinks.

      cheers

  • B Woodman

    Calvin,
    Thanks for the backstory on GoT and today’s cartoon. GoT is not something I’ve even wanted to watch or get involved in, I have enough on my hands with work, family and house.

  • JcTPatriot

    I guess there is no escape for those of us who could not care less about that show. Watching the Game Of Thrones is the new CrossFit. The tiny percentage of people who watch it just feel it is critical to tell everyone else about it. This show has absolutely no place in this comic. The majority of people I know who watch it are all hardcore Liberals.

    • NotYetInACamp

      I have ever seen an episode of GoT. We often must speak to others than the choir. It is good to coordinate and teach the choir, but not all of the time. I learned more about GoT that I ever desired. I now know that I do not want to learn more about GoT. But I am aware of GoT and understand more about the people fascinated by it. That is something I likely would not have set out to do.

    • Noelegy

      Exactly how I feel about football. GoT, on the other hand…MOAR!!

  • S Hooks

    I never got into GoT (for one thing, I refuse to pay for HBO and am building my own HTPC to “cut the cable” with DirecTV as soon as possible). What piques my curiosity is why Sam is reading “Junior Inquisitor”, and what is the point our host is making with that? (g) Now, if she was reading “Story of O” that would be really interesting… 😉

  • RWL

    Game of Throne was originally a series of (still unfinished) books that are well worth reading (If you enjoyed “Lord of the Rings” type of books). HBO did a good job of imagery, but adds in more debauchery to gather ratings/playing to the lowest common denominator. They did a great job of casting and imagery though. And quite a bit more than “a few” people are watching…. and more than just libtards. It’s good vs. evil vs. evil vs. evil vs. evil so even conservatives get wrapped into the saga.

    • B Woodman

      Weeeeell. I might eventually buy the book series (used) and add it to my ever-growing stack of books to read after the inevitable collapse. I figure I have enough books to read (new and re-read) for the next 5-10 years. Yep. Got my own library – fiction, non-fiction, history, how-to-do, whatever.

  • bill

    Uhhhhh… You’re kidding, right? You’re weaving in a fantasy rape story from a TV show? Man I guess I’m missing something here. What’s the point with so much reality going on? I mean there are women carrying mattresses across the graduation stage to draw attention to their alleged rape……

  • Chris Muir

    I read or watch other items that are not necessarily of my taste, to have some verisimilitude for Skye and Jan.That being said, I actually like GOT and watch it!

  • David C

    GOT is watched by alot more than just libs. Actually comes in for a lot of heat for it’s crudity and nudity by feminists and PC types. And if you are aware of some of what happened in the past and the type of crap that went on then GOT would appear mild by comparison. What I find interesting is some of the themes being exposed in GOT are also becoming favorite causes for libs right now. Incest? Pedophilia? And many others. This is by far the slowest and most boring season of them all though and I doubt I’ll be much worried about what happens from here.

  • B Woodman

    SO when is it that Sam will graduate from “Junior Inquisitor” to full fledged senior experienced inquisitor?

  • xdcpd085

    I have quite enough drama in MY life, without turning on the Idiot Box.

  • Pamela

    *Sits down. Opens a bottle of Raicilla El Cono*
    Anyone care to place odds on how fast Skye has a reality check on any subject?

    I think there is a hungry dragon in that new hubby’s future…
