Courting the fictional chimpanzee vote

Curious George publisher mulls legal action over Obama shirt, by Jay Fitzgerald at the Boston Herald, via Defamer.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is considering legal action against a Georgia tavern owner selling T-shirts depicting presidential candidate Barack Obama as the Curious George monkey character.

In a statement, the Boston publisher, which owns the book rights to Curious George, said today the firm finds the T-shirt "offensive and utterly out of keeping with the values Curious George represents."

Because clearly George is a Clinton supporter. I'm waiting for official statements from superdelegates Lancelot Link and The Bear.
