George R.R. Martin is the author of these books about some fight for an Iron Throne. Amanda Mac and Optimistic Chad have finished several books in Martin’s series, yet I have had put down A Game of Thrones for a few months to calm my nerves and settle my stomach, but I may pick it back up again. Two days ago, Martin wrote this post on voter suppression, with these quotes:
“But I would be remiss if I do not at least make passing mention of how depressed, disgusted, and, yes, angry I’ve become as I watch the ongoing attempts at voter suppression in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, and other states where Republicans and their Teabagger allies control key seats of power.”
Oh, and this goody:
“The people behind these efforts at disenfranchising large groups of voters (the young, the old, the black, the brown) are not Republicans, since clearly they have scant regard for our republic or its values. They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants.”
*Sigh* Welp, I rest my case, once again.
