In the e-burn heard ’round the Internet, “pantsuit aficionado” and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Sunday to air a grievance. Clinton didn’t waste her 140 characters on sports talk though, instead the “glass ceiling cracker” cracked wise about Fox, the network airing Super Bowl XLVIII
It’s so much more fun to watch FOX when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked! #SuperBowl

Retweeted more than 45,000 times, Clinton, who has had a somewhat contentious relationship with Fox’s cable news branch in the past, probably got one of the night’s biggest laughs. Her one-liner had all the key elements of a classic joke–the set up (the big game) and the self-deprecating punchline (the hard hits Clinton allegedly takes in the media). Perhaps leading up to 2016 we’ll see more of the “hair icon’s” lighter side.
