11 Political Lessons Learned From Gilmore Girls

I came across this post on Buzzfeed and felt I had to share it. It is the Gilmore Girls after all. The premise is 11 political lessons learnt from the show. The lessons aren’t really political. More like normal life lessons. I guess those are the same things?

These two are my favorites. I put my color commentary in green.

It's Good To Have Friends In High Places, Especially Yale's Secret Societies

Rory takes a Mary Poppins-style jump with the Life and Death Brigade, a fictional version of Skull & Bones, the secret society of which George W. Bush was a member during his time at Yale. You Jump, I Jump Jack – One of my favorite episodes from the later seasons. The secret society, Rory’s blue dress, the jump!

10. Never Underestimate The Importance Of Fast-Talking And Thinking On Your Feet

Lorelai and Rory regularly employ rapid-fire speech and throw around witty references. I miss the show. I really should start watching it again, if only to feel intelligent when I catch & understand one of their pop-culture/indie-culture references.
