George R.R. Martin, author of the novels on which the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” is based, cyber ranted about “Republicans and their Teabagger allies” in a blog post on his website. Martin begins his blog post by clarifying that he is “way too busy these days for long political rants” but continues typing away about recent voter purges in certain battleground states. Martin says, “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.”

Martin, an avid Obama supporter, continues his blog rant, saying, “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.”
