Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has become the hottest thing on tumblr this week thanks to Text From Hillary. If you haven’t seen the links floating around facebook or twitter I highly recommend you check it out.
The tumblr takes a photo of the sunglasses-clad, all business Hillary Clinton checking her cellphone on a military plane and captions it against another celebrity or political figure “texting” her back. The concept is simple and brilliant, and also extremely hysterical. (My personal favorite features Anna Wintour, the editor of Vouge. Click here to check it out)
But yesterday the co-creators of the site, Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe, were presented from a surprising guest submission. Hillary Clinton herself! Clinton and her staff have said that they find the tumblr hilarious and her own submission pokes fun at the creators.
I know in the past that the public has been reluctant to finding out that our world leaders are actually up on there pop-culture (Obama’s comment on the Kayne West/Taylor Swift VMA incident anyone?) But I think it’s nice to know that our politicians and government know what’s happening in the regular world. Hopefully people can take a lesson from “Hillz” and learn to embrace the creative people around them.
