I can’t believe that everyone interested in national politics wasn’t following the @IsPaulSpeaker Twitter account for the last couple of weeks. The account, run by Topeka, Kansas attorney Angel Romero Jr (also a proud Washburn University grad), presented a series of animated GIFs answer the question – Is Paul Ryan speaker of the house yet? Every few hours, Romero would tweet out GIFs initially reporting Nope,
Then Very Soon
And finally – the white smoke indicating that yes, Ryan had been elected speaker
Of course, the story didn’t end there. Following a series of joyous Yes tweets, we found at that new speaker Paul Ryan was a fan of the feed, posting this from his official account:

Thank you, Mr. Romero, for some political fun!
