"Hill"arious: Hillary Clinton embraces parody site

By Elise Labott

Hillary Clinton can often be found on the road checking her BlackBerry. When Moammar Gadhafi was caught by Libyan rebels last year, she was captured on tape receiving the news on her BlackBerry.

Now, the new online sensation, "Texts from Hillary" Tumblr, imagines what the secretary of State is chatting about.

The blog, which recently went viral, features photos of Clinton on her BlackBerry with imagined conversations over text between the secretary and various politicians and other notables, also shown in photos using their phones.

This week Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith, creators of the blog, got an unexpected text from Clinton.

"sup Adam. nice selfie Stace :-)" the "text" from Clinton reads, printed over a photo of a sunglasses-clad Hillary Clinton glued to her BlackBerry while aboard a C-17 plane to Libya.

Lambe and Smith's replies, posted over pictures of the two texting, reads "omg...busted" and "sry Hillz."

During Clinton's own imagined conversation, she pokes fun at herself and the blog, using text-message acronyms.

"ROFL @ ur tumblr!" Clinton . "g2g – scrunchie time. ttyl?" [TRANSLATION: Got to go – scrunchie time. Talk to you later?"]

Smith posted Clinton's submission via Twitter, along with the caption, "I just met Secretary Clinton. She loves the site. Pictures to come. Here's her post she autographed."

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said Clinton has enjoyed the site and wanted to meet the brains behind the project and submit her own post. She invited them to her office, where she presented Lambe and Smith with their own personalized copy.

As proof of her submission, she posed for a picture with Lambe and Smith in her suite of offices to accompany the post.

    The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not fail me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, but I truly thought you would have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
