Let me preface this by saying that I try not to get too political on my blog, but it's hard not to get swept up in the pomp and circumstance and not to mention the actual history made at the DNC this week when Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination for President of the United States, becoming the first woman to ever do so. Just a little glass ceiling shattering going on here. Kind of a big deal.
But I digress. This might not be something you say every day, but I do: Thank God for Twitter...and that block button.
Throughout this dumpster fire of an election, the social media platform can be a cathartic place to vent frustrations, unload with humor and find that you’re not alone.
It’s also cluttered with so many clever, hilarious contributors that often leave me in awe of their rapid-fire wit. When I was sprawled on the couch watching the Democratic National Convention this week, and was finally introduced to a Hillary Clinton’s pick for Vice President, a sweet, salt-of-the-earth man named Sen. Tim Kaine, who speaks Spanish and is folksier than your dad eating apple pie in a cornfield on the Fourth Of July, I immediately flocked to Twitter to join in the brilliant and shockingly kind welcome to the political spotlight. And they didn't disappoint, believe me.
Here are some of the brilliant and hilarious tweets about the new potential VP.
The only thing better than Tim Kaine jokes is watching Bill and Hillary Clinton, leaders of the free world, frolic in the thousands of star-spangled balloons that dropped from the ceiling after Hillary's triumphant speech with child-like wonder.
