Andrea, Anecdotally

Anecdotal evidence gathered mostly via IM by The (New York) Observer suggests that… some of the Observer reporters’ gay friends and acquaintances are Andrea Mitchell fans. Some more enthusiastic than others. (In other words: Mitchell, NBC News’s Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent, is a “gay icon!”)

From one IM exchange quoted in the piece:

I like [Andrea Mitchell]. She’s the Golden Girls rolled into one: the body of Sophia, the sassiness of Dorothy and probably a sex kitten like Blanche, and most likely from the Midwest, like Rose.
