Campaign Reporters Overcome by a Sudden Fit of Whining

Politico tells me that campaign reporters are sad; they're finding no 'joy' in covering the 2012 elections. John Fund says that many of them "are appalled" at the accommodations in Charlotte (Tucker Carlson says the "Quality Inn" where his people are stuck is “the worst hotel you can imagine”). And the Washington Examiner has a piece whining about how reporters are being asked to separate their garbage into recycling bins -- and, worse, are being "scolded" when they don't submit to these eco-Nazis.

Reporters are teenagers. They're not enjoying the trip so far.
