Well, as time goes by and we dig deeper into the causes of this delightful debacle, it becomes clear who truly is at fault...During a sales pitch in Austin TX, Sibelius observed that the law Democrats passed in the dead of night with zero Republican votes required the rollout to begin on Nov 1. And the Republican bitter clingers in the House would have insisted the law be followed and the statutory date be observed even though they shut down the government on the risible fiction they wanted the law either de-funded or delayed one year. Hence, it was not an "ideal atmosphere" for software rollouts. The Moon was in the wrong aspect and Tea Party negative waves were everywhere. And that's why the software stinks like a dead rat in the basement.Well, I suppose there's something to be said for that theory, but, personally speaking, I blame Bush.In other news, anonymous sources who follow Secretary Sibelius hinted that HHS is trying to buy out Vitamix sales booths at Costcos and community fairs across the country. HHS hopes that the Dancin' HHS Apostles will be able to capitalize on the crowds drawn by the free cheese samples and corn dogs to convince the lumpenproletariat to sign up for Jeebuscare. Those sources also said that VP and Chief Mascot, Joe Biden, was going to be made available for a dunking booth at the Rhubarb Cook-Off in Hayseed, KS.
