Twitter Feud Alert: Madeleine Albright vs. Conan O’Brien


Our favorite Georgetown professor and former Secretary of State is already quite the tweeter, but she’s outdone herself now. After comedian Conan O’Brien tweeted he’d be dressing as a “slutty Madeleine Albright,” Madeleine fired back. See the full Twitter “feud” below:

Sassy, Madeleine. We like it.

Madeleine Albright Also Digs Leslie Knope


Madeleine Albright — she’s just like us. Well, insofar as that she’s also a fan of Leslie Knope, the quirky former city councilwoman of Pawnee played by Amy Poehler on “Parks and Recreation.” The former Secretary of State and current Georgetown professor gave both Poehler and her beloved character a shoutout earlier this week in a tweet that would surely make Knope squeal with joy.

Madeleine, you’re not alone. We love Leslie too. And Leslie, we agree, just keep doing what you’re doing — we just hope that autographed portrait somehow makes its way into the show’s upcoming seventh season.

Look Who Just Joined Twitter!

As of yesterday, Secretary Albright had officially set up a Twitter. Her first tweet, which featured a nifty photo of her in a “Tweet” pin (how festive!) read:

Though new to the Twitter scene, Secretary Albright has sure hit the ground running. She’s already been tweeted at by – and has responded to – Suzanne Philion (@SuzKP) and Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton). She’s also talked about one of her special musical talents.
