Everyone online keeps going on and on about that little dig at Mitt Romney's father — then-governor of Michigan and soon-to-be failed presidential candidate — from last night's episode of Mad Men…
Character Henry Francis, a Republican political aide who had worked for New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in previous seasons, is shown fielding a request for his new boss — strongly hinted to be New York City Mayor John Lindsay — to travel to Michigan to appear with then-Gov. George Romney.
"Well, tell Jim his honor's not going to Michigan. Because Romney's a clown and I don’t want him standing next to him," Francis responds.
…but why is nobody talking about the political dig that was embedded in last night's season premiere episode of Game of Thrones? Come on, don't tell me you didn't catch it either?
Okay, remember that part where all the characters have a medieval sensibility and live in a world full of extreme xenophobia and fear of the unknown and are all governed by genuine belief in the supernatural and superstition?
Seems like a pretty obvious reference to the modern day conservative movement to me.
