QotD, You Win Or You Die edition.

John Hayward over at RedState, in the process of reviewing WITH EXTREME SPOILERS the latest episode of Game of Thrones, makes this point about how the universe does not care about how unfair life is to any particular candidate:

A prospective candidate who thinks himself above the unpleasantness of the modern electoral arena should save his prospective donors a lot of money and take a pass on running.

Yes, yes, I know: half of you are still getting over the fact that RedState is doing something like reviewing GoT from a conservative/Republican perspective: and the other half of you are startled that this is being done by somebody who isn’t me.  Personally, I’m just as happy to have other people be comfortable in their political geekery: it means that I’m winning.  Besides, I’m not watching that show right now, either.
