Obamacare is now officially off and running. Or, more accurately, it's not really running, but it's off the tracks like a Hellbound runaway train!
Tuesday's "kick off" (which, coincidentally, is what many Americans will do while waiting to get actual healthcare in the future) was hampered by computer "glitches" nationwide...assuming that you define "glitch" as what happened to the Hindenburg when landing in New Jersey.
Fortunately, B. Hussein assures us that the glitches should be cleared up in just a few short months, which unfortunately means by the time the sign-up system actually works, the open enrollment period will be over - and many uninsured people will have to wait most of a year for their next shot at the brass ring.
But in the larger scheme (and it is a scheme), if lots of people don't get insurance, get sick, and subsequently die, it's still fine. Or more specifically, their uninsured survivors will still be fined.
--------BONUS: The Shutdown Hits The Fan
It's official: the government has shut down and Hope n' Change is still here! We win!!!
Well, that may be an overstatement - but we're still enjoying the general chaos and the good clean fun of salting liberal wounds with cartoons like these (which we posted on Facebook)...
Obama brushed away an imaginary tear as he pointed out that national parks and monuments will be closed for the duration of the shutdown and, if the GOP get their way, Christmas will be threatened (yes, he really said that).
As far as we know, the White House Kwanzaa celebration will still be held, and will include the First Family's festive ceremonial lighting of George Zimmerman.
