Hillary Clinton Channels Cersie Lannister

S.E. Cupp, New York Daily News asks:  Hillary Clinton’s bizarre push to blame [1]
the media: What planet is she living on?

Don’t know the particular planet, but do know the name of the world, to wit Westeros.  Answer from Jonah Goldberg, National Review [2]:

The thing is that even if you despise the theocrats, Cersei had every reason to be ashamed. She was, in fact, guilty of everything she was accused of. Yes, the person shouting “shame!” the loudest was an uptight prig and zealot, but most of the people shouting “shame!” were actually . . . the people. You might even call them deplorables. Cersei certainly would.

I honestly have no idea if Clinton watches Game of Thrones, but I think it’s interesting that the team that put together her book took it for granted that everyone reading it would see Cersei as a wholly sympathetic figure in that scene.

In Westeros, the nice people finish dead.    For reasons only known to George R.R. Martin be by virtue of what birth or marriage, Cersei believes she is entitled to rule, and is willing lie and murder to do so.     That Mrs. Clinton would sympathize with murderer like Cersei is about all you need to know about her fitness to be president.
