Silly Hillary Clinton blog delights Web, Texts From Hillary: your new favorite political Tumblr, "Texts from Hillary" imagines the secretary of state exchanging barbs with other politicians. Two photos of Hillary Clinton on a military C-17 plane taken last October, one by Reuters photographer Kevin Lamarque, the other by Time photographer Diana Walker, have resurfaced this week as the foundation of what we at Yahoo News have determined is the best political meme of 2012 thus far. (A senior editorial staffer at Politico, who declined to be named, agreed.)
Texts From Hillary is the brainchild of Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith, both communications professionals in Washington, D.C. The Tumblr post features the photos of the sunglasses-adorned secretary of state using her Blackberry paired with various politicians also on their phones, along with imagined texts being exchanged.
Lambe and Smith dreamed up the site over drinks Wednesday night after watching the photos bounce around social networks that day. "We quickly decided it should be turned into a meme (that the two of us would have a laugh about)," Lambe told Yahoo News over email. "The site is meant to be a compliment to Hillary. Hopefully, everyone gets that."
