Last night over drinks, two friends in Washington D.C. decided to create a Tumblr based on a picture of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton texting on her Blackberry. Today, that Tumblr and the image of Hillary Clinton texting like a non-chalant ninja of international diplomacy – is everywhere.
Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith, both DC-based communications professionals, are the masterminds behind Texts from Hillary. Lambe told Yahoo! today that the Tumblr “… is meant to be a compliment to Hillary. Hopefully, everyone gets that.”
I love that it is at once silly, political, bi-partisan and really funny. Buzzfeed called it the best meme of the political season to date while The Atlantic calls it “a perfect fusion of irony and respect”.
Check out 7 of the funniest and click over to Texts from Hillary for the whole set, with more showing up all the time.
