By Beth Mishler

With Game of Thrones officially on hiatus, we already find ourselves jonesing for more of our favorites from Westeros and beyond. Thankfully, others feel the same. The folks at motherjones.com have created three hilarious GOT political ads that dare to ask the question: what would happen if the characters vying for the Iron Throne were thrown into today’s political circus?

Wouldn’t King Joffrey have to show his birth certificate since his parentage is in question and he is rumored to be the product of twincest? Would Daenerys Targaryen make the best leader despite the questionable company she keeps?
