Well, it certainly did not seem like a slow news day, what with Syria’s civil war intensifying, the NSA Whistleblower villain/hero disappearing into the mists, a fourth (!) scandal brewing in DC, etc. Yep, seemed like a lot was going on in the world.
But CNN, quite breathlessly, felt compelled to devote an entire story on Hillary’s starting a Twitter account!
Even the Washington Times chimed in, somehow suggesting a link between Hillary’s Twitter account and her plans for 2016:
Just when you thought the 2016 presidential speculation had subsided a bit, Hillary Clinton goes and joins Twitter.
The former secretary of state, former senator and the political world’s most talked about, yet unconfirmed, contender for president now has a verified account on the popular social media site with the handle @HillaryClinton
Her headshot is cleverly imposed on a larger, widely distributed photo of her checking her phone in sunglasses during her jet-setting time in President Obama’s Cabinet.
Her personal description is also humorous, with “hair icon” and “pantsuit aficionado” listed alongside titles like “Senator” and “FLOTUS.”
Her final descriptor is “TBD,” a wink and a nod to her to-be-determined path toward either the White House or a relaxing retirement.
If you are wondering why I would write a post about such a “non-story,” I will tell you:
Because it gives me an excuse to post a recent Hillary cartoon from Michael Ramirez.
Yes, Tammy is right: The guy is a genius! 🙂
