Swoon: Mayor Cory Booker tweets Harry Potter quote, gets away with it

A lot of people joke about Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker being some sort of superhero, but today he demonstrated what is perhaps his most amazing power: the ability to quote from a Harry Potter book non-ironically and still seem cool.

Isn’t anyone going to rib Booker for being an out-and-proud Potterhead? No?

Is Booker making an early play for the muggle vote in his Senate run?

    Hey, Harry Potter is probably the only books they’ve ever read.

    Funny how people are impressed Booker quoted the HP series , yet called Palin stupid for saying she enjoyed the Narnia series (which much better and more original books)
