When even party politics finds itself dressing up in outlandish outfits and pretending to be a superhero in order to convince grown adults to exercise their democratic right to vote, that's probably a pretty good sign that geeks really have taken over the world. How else to explain the presence of Campaign Boy and Campaign Girl at last week's Comic-Con?
