Using Harry Potter for Politics

Cross posted at Say Anything: Reader blogs.


I had the misfortune the other day to spot a "Republicans for Voldemort" bumper sticker right after I had mailed some Christmas presents. I was so disappointed. Not even harry Potter was free from being used to score political points. The bumper sticker was inspired by this 2003 comic strip. Not to be out down there is a rather large collection of "Democrats for Wormtail" gear available at Cafepress.com. I was thinking "Democrats for Cornelius Fudge" myself in retaliation but "Democrats for Wormtail" does the job well enough I suppose.
