"It is easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor."
- Tyrion Lannister

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

- Daenerys Targaryen

"The Lord of Light wants his enemies burned. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where's the God of Tits and Wine?"

- Tyrion Lannister

"The common people pray for rain, healthy children, and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace. They never are."

- Jorah Mormont

"These bad people are what I'm good at. Out talking them. Out thinking them."

- Tyrion Lannister

"What happened? I think fundamentals were trumped by mechanics and, to a lesser extent, by demographics."

In the last Republican debate, centrist Huntsman and looney libertarian Ron Paul both agreed with Obama that waterboarding* is torture, illegal, un-American and wrong. Torture-victim John McCain tweeted disappointment with the other "hopefuls."

That sick fuck Mormon wouldn't answer one way or the other at the debate but his official position is that it is not torture. He should be asked to undergo a session to prove it's not torture.

The token candidates Bachmann and Cain were enthusiastically pro-torture.
