FoxSkeeters



Via Froomkin, we get the best description of official Washington and its enablers yet:
Nicholas Kristof asked readers to offer literary or historical parallels to the Bush administration and Iraq. He writes in his New York Times opinion column (subscription required): "A reader named Melissa S. e-mailed to say that she explains Iraq policy to her 8-year-old son in terms of Harry Potter characters: 'Dick Cheney is Lord Voldemort. George W. Bush is Peter Pettigrew.' Don Rumsfeld is Lucius Malfoy, while Cornelius Fudge represents administration supporters who deny that anything is wrong. And, she concludes, 'Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter is Fox News.'"

Works for me.

Meanwhile, have you reserved your advance copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet? Yes, I am a complete and total Harry Potter geek. So sue me.

I reserved 7 copies yesterday - my oldest is having a birthday party that day and everybody is going to get a copy hot off the press!

Works for me, too! I love it.

BTW, no reserving for me. I'm going to the midnight party at my local book shop, then going to read all night. Just like I did for HBP. ;)

I'll start re-reading my books in June. I reserved my copy and will be at the Barnes & Nobles to pick up the special edition. I'll be up all night just reading. LOL!!!
