Journos Off Their Rockers, Bill Murray is the Answer

This is why those devious faux-journos are crashing exclusive parties instead of the campaign trail: it’s a tough life! I always half-wonder how Rory Gilmore is doing, now that she’s been covering the Obama campaign for two years. You know, for that political online magazine that she started working for on the very last episode of Gilmore Girls (RIP). Is she anything like CNN political correspondent Candy Crowley, who, as reported by TNR, is just really hard-up for some normal grocery store shopping and a good TiVo couch-a-thon?

“After the previous campaign, it took me a good month to stop waking up
in the middle of the night in a panic that I’ve missed something,”
Crowley says.

Sounds like our Rory, although I’m sure Lorelai would tell her to get a life and go drink more.

Elsewhere, The New Yorker‘s Hendrick Hertzberg (<3) compares the turn this election has taken to a Bill Murray movie:

“I don’t want it to end, but I always
want it to be about to end,” he says. “If the election were always a
week away and I was feeling fairly good about it, that would be
nice–sort of like Groundhog Day.”

Is he always right about everything?
