Dang: Now the ObamaCare data center has crashed too

Full-scale implosion.

On the one hand, you can say this one’s not the administration’s fault because Verizon operates the data center. The connectivity issue that caused the system to shut down occurred early on Sunday, and as of now no one knows when it will be back online. In the meantime, no one can shop or make any purchases.

On the other hand – and I say this just from personal experience as a Verizon customer – I have never known Verizon service to be unreliable. I switched over last year from Sprint, which was a cacophony of unreliability, and Verizon has been unfailingly dependable. Now granted, my phone and data service is a very different animal from what Verizon is supposed to be doing for the federal government, but this is not some fly-by-night company run by Michelle Obama’s pal. It’s Verizon.

And that leads me to suspect that, as has so often been the case here, contractors are struggling to fulfill the wishes of a government that insisted for political purposes on designing a square peg to fit into a round hole.

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Obviously sabotaged by Tea Party operatives, with the assistance of the Koch Brothers.

/channeling Chris Matthews, Juan Williams, and a host of other liberal commentators whose brains rattle around their skulls like a pebble stuck in the wheel well of a truck tire....
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Obviously! And don't forget about Bush!
