Last night, the entirety of Twitter went insane over a goddamn dress that is either black and blue or white and gold or who gives a crap it’s just a dress.
Unfortunately, this ended up spilling over into politics Twitter, and specifically, Congress Twitter. As in, members of Congress were tweeting about the dress.
House Speaker John Boehner and Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy have officially tied for the biggest political tie-in:
#TheDress is blue & black.
Senate Democrats are blocking Security funding to protect president’s #immigration overreach.

I know three things: 1) the ACA works; 2) climate change is real; 2) that dress is gold and white.

Thought I had a reasonable understanding of what Twitter is/can be used for. Especially for an 88-year old.
But here we are, with a dress.

Yes, but can she see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
But seriously, everyone please stop talking about the dress.
