Breaking Bad inspires George R.R.Martin to make an even worse villain

A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin is an avid viewer of Breaking Bad, but couldn't help but note on his blog after last weekend's episode "Ozymandias" that "Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros." His next thought? "(I need to do something about that)."

Holy hell. Given that the world of Westeros is chock full of psychopaths for whom rape, slavery, torture and murder is completely inconsequential (or, in the case of Ramsay Snow, just a great deal of fun!) the idea that GRRM thinks Walter White is worse than any of his characters is a bold testament to Breaking Bad's depiction of a man's descent into evil.

Also, given the monsters he's already created, I'm having a hard time imagining what GRRM would think is "worse." I mean, what else is there? Other than maybe a dude who wears dead babies as slippers?
