I must admit, I knew nothing about Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii before about three hours ago. If Tulsi Gabbard had burst into my home holding a giant check for millions of dollars while my wife was gone, and I were left to my own devices to explain the day’s events to my wife when she returned, I’d have totally forgotten Gabbard’s name between her exit and my wife’s return. If she surfaced in a new, authentic photo with Biggie and Jim Morrison on her verified Instagram, her presence in said photo would be mere flotsam in the tidal wave of media reaction.
