About those dragons in the ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel …

Hey, remember how I argued that the Game of Thrones prequel could probably have dragons in it? Yeah, I might have been wrong and dumb. From a New York Times interview with Martin: “It’s set thousands of years before ‘Game of Thrones..’ King’s Landing does not exist. The Iron Throne does not exist. There are no dragons there.” NOW. IN MY DEFENSE, he seems to only be talking about Westeros here. If they explore Essos at all, there could still be dragons. OK, NOW GET BACK TO WORK, GEORGE.

CNN has fired commentator Marc Lamont Hill for making a controversial comment about Israel.

Oh hey, Kid Rock called Joy Behar a bitch on Fox News this morning, so everything is right on schedule. Behar and the ladies of The View laughed it off and invited him on the show, by the way, because Kid Rock is a stupid human being who can’t be taken seriously.

All of yesterday’s Mueller news got me dancing like Rerun. H/T: BoingBoing
