Senator Muggle

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.) just said on the Senate floor that Reid’s bill, when you look at its substance, is about the size of “a Harry Potter novel.” If his daughter can read those books, says Whitehouse, then the Senate GOP should be able to thumb though Reid’s bill.

Hey, if the Democrats want to compare their bill to popular fiction, fine by me. If I were J. K. Rowling, however, I’d be offended.
