All this week we're counting down the days to the release of the last Harry Potter book by comparing quotes from J.K. Rowling's famous series to things said by another group of folks seeking immortality: the candidates in the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
Which of these below lines are from a made-up character in a book about wizards, and which are from Mitt Romney?
a. "When sperm and egg unite, something goes from inanimate to animate. It is life."
b. "I don't think we were adequately prepared for what occurred. I don't think we did enough planning. I don't think we considered the various downsides and risks."
c. "When I was twelve, I was just as much of a nobody as you are now. In fact, I'd say I was even more of a nobody!"
d. "Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies."
e. "I don't know where you learned about right and wrong, but you seem to have missed a few crucial lessons."
f. "Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain."
g. "My dog likes fresh air."
