Galloping Galoshes: spelletrader: Galloping Galoshes: spelletrader: Interesting, it appears that fiction also has a liberal bias.Really? The government in Harry Potter was a dictatorial Ministry of Magic with no legislative check on executive government. Seems more like totalitarianism to me.Reading too much into it are you.nah, not original. A bunch of lawyers with too much time on their hands did the analysis.
proteus_b: Galloping Galoshes: Dope, that's what parents are supposed to do. You know, teach their kids. Or let their kids grow up without guidance (or let the schools do it, which is worse).Yeah, nothing is more useful to society than 9 year old Randroids and 8 year old Communists.
Fluorescent Testicle: Galloping Galoshes: *pbptth* *splash*TROLL IN THE DUNGEON.
Copperbelly watersnake: Umbridge had set in stone values (farked up as they were).Romney is more like Fudge.
Galloping Galoshes: farkplug: Galloping Galoshes:farkplug:Heh. Funny! But you have never expanded upon the alleged (by you) incompetence of Obama, so I still say you're a Romney fan.I was challenging bmongar on the single unacceptable trait he was alluding to. I didn't get that:farkplug: No, not endorsing Romney. Just deathly curious to know what my fair leader's single unacceptable trait might be.was asking me to expand on anything. I thought you were asking the same question I was.Also, just because the choice is A or B, if I don't care for A, that doesn't imply I like B. I'd be happy to discuss my views of Obama, but first I want to hear what bmongar thinks is this single unacceptable trait of Obama he refers to.
qorkfiend: Any links? This I'd like to read.
bmongar: I guess you can't read. What I think some people feel is in the original post expressed in Santorumeese.
proteus_b: people who indoctrinate their nine-year-olds into their political views, whatever they may be, are disgusting...
LazarusLong42: This is a better assessment, yes. Umbridge was deliberately malevolent (despite not being herself a Death Eater). Fudge was an incompetent windsock.
Galloping Galoshes: Raharu: Biden is Mr.WeasleyToo kind. Need a dumber character. Weasley was too strong.

Ikam: nyone whose been through the welfare system as Rowling had (yes, I know she's from the UK), or who has to work with government agencies (as I do) knows that bureaucrats can often be both malevolent and incompetent.

that bosnian sniper: John Boehner is...hmm, Fenrir Greyback?
Polly Ester: We had the Nintendo generation all grown up casting Bush as some super villain from their extensive comic book collection.I guess it was inevitable that we would hear from the Harry Potter tweens voting for the first time.The best part is how dumbfounded and befuddled they get when nobody else buys into their caricatures.
Alphax: that bosnian sniper: John Boehner is...hmm, Fenrir Greyback?Greyback is dangerous. Boehner is just a weepy drunk.
