Clinton embraces 'Texts From Hillary' web parody

April 11, 2012

LOL. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a tech-savvy sense of humor, and she wants you to know it.

The secretary of state is firmly embracing an Internet parody that purports to show her texting various politicians and celebrities, shooting them down with snappy retorts. Clinton invited the creators of the "Texts from Hillary" Tumblr website to the State Department on Tuesday and shared a laugh with them. And, she even submitted her own fake exchange.

The site has become an Internet sensation since it was launched last week. It is based on photographs of Clinton, wearing sunglasses, surrounded by briefing papers and staring at her Blackberry, aboard a military transport plane flying to Libya in October. I n it, the captions show her launching imaginary witty ripostes at her husband, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and others who are all depicted in photos looking at smartphones and distracting Clinton from important work at hand.

And they say liberals have no sense of humor.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
