Madam Secretary Responds with LOLZ to ‘Texts from Hillary’

In just a week, the “Texts from Hillary” Tumblr has released a wave of pent-up demand for the “badass cool” of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Proving her camp knows how to handle a social media alley-oop, a staffer reached out to blog’s creators Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith to arrange a quick meeting and photo opp. Each received copies of Clinton’s own TfH submission signed, “Thanks for the many LOLZ”.

And that’s how you handle parodies and spoofs.  For more on the political ramifications of Clinton’s favorability rating and new-found cool, see Talking Points Memo.
