Attack Ads Come to 'Game of Thrones'

Mother Jones Imagines Super PACs Roaming Westeros

By Published on .

For some folks, armies of reanimated corpses aren't half as scary as attack ads funded by Super PACs. We're not sure which the staffers at Mother Jones find scarier, and we don't care. But we do like that they've imagined an unholy crossover of modern-day political advertising with the violent political realities of Westeros, the fantasy land at the center of George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" series -- and, yes, HBO's "Game of Thrones."

Below, the Committee to Protect Dragons goes after Daenerys Targaryen. Check out MotherJones.com for hit jobs on Robb Stark and Joffrey Baratheon.
