The White House Jumped the Shark Today
Amy PayneMarch 12, 2014 at 3:31 pm(4)

Cultural trends are often said to “jump the shark” when they go too far and become laughable or obsolete. The White House is in this territory with its desperate—desperate—marketing of Obamacare.

Today, Lance Bass—a member of the boy band *NSYNC, which was popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s—tweeted that he was “entering the White House to meet w the President to discuss health care reform.” He added a website address: “HealthCare.org.”

Politically active Twitter users quickly mocked this high-level meeting and the fact that the pop star of yesteryear didn’t even know he was supposed to be pointing followers to HealthCare.gov.

The tweet has since been deleted, but here it is for posterity:

Poor Lance hasn't worked in such a long time, he's still wearing his junior high sports jacket.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Didn't he "come out" a year or two ago?  Perhaps OCare was not the real reason he was happy to have this meeting.

Yes, Lance is the proverbial three-dollar bill.
I just feel bad for the Marine in the photo. The crap these soldiers have to endure ...

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
