Westeros Takes On Political Attack Ads [Video]

There are many people in Westeros vying for the Iron Throne. Five different kings are going to war over it, and the ruler will be the last one standing. Instead of fighting for a monarchy, imagine if the Seven Kingdoms operated on a democratic system. They’d draw blood with words and smear campaigns instead of with swords (well, it is Westeros—so, maybe not).

Mother Jones has created political attack ads showcasing the worst sides of Daenerys Targaryen, Joffrey Baratheon, and Robb Stark. It’s easy to find horrible things to say about Joffrey, and I like the perspectives they use for Dany and Robb.

Watch the videos after the break and beware mild spoilers for season two.

Who would you vote against based on these videos?
