Winter is here and so are the forced "Game of Thrones" references from Washington's political class.

The highly-anticipated seventh season of "Game of Thrones" debuted Sunday night and the Republican National Committee sought to jump on board the hype train with an email Monday morning.

Linking to an Associated Press piece about how divided Democrats are on their messaging, Michael Ahrens, rapid response director at the RNC, made sure to get in on the "Game of Thrones" fun.

"And just like we saw last night, expect things to get a whole lot worse for Democrats before they get any better," Ahrens wrote. "Cersei Lannister has a greater chance of uniting the realm than DNC Chair Tom Perez does of uniting his party."

Cersei Lannister is the queen of Westeros in the show and is about to go to war with at least one other challenger to her throne. She is an alcoholic insane person who blew up hundreds of people in a massive explosion during the last season, leading to her last son committing suicide and her ascension to the Iron Throne.

The seventh season of "Game of Thrones" will last for six more weeks, so you can be sure there will be more references to the Song of Ice and Fire, for the night is dark and full of terrors.
