(Newser) Saturday Night Live is the latest to rip the government's lumbering HealthCare.gov website, with Kate McKinnon appearing in last night's Cold Open as Kathleen Sebelius to give frustrated users a little troubleshooting advice. For example, "Have you tried restarting your computer? Sometimes it helps to turn the computer off, and then turn it back on." Another part of the problem is overload, she says, as millions of Americans try to get coverage. "Unfortunately, the site was only designed to handle six users at a time," she says. Other tips? Try signing up in Icelandic, or click on one of the site's handy-dandy links, "such as Kayak.com, where you purchase airline tickets to Canada and buy cheaper prescription drugs." Or users can try the FAQ, which include "What the hell?" and "Who the government?" Ed Norton guest hosted.

Obama didn't create the website, and bad planning by the people who did doesn't change the fact that the AMA is the right move for the country. It's both hilarious and pathetic that anyone would even try to call "Obamacare" a failure because the website isn't working as efficiently as everyone would've liked in its first month. Despite what so many of you seem to think, a broken website does not equate to a broken healthcare system. The ignorance surrounding this is just mind blowing.

Dang. This reminds me of how unfunny SNL was back in the early 80's. Right after the entire original crew left. Hope they can get back on track.

Obama fans can deny he's the worst president in histoy with the most corrupt administration, but they can't prevent being flushed down the drain with everyone else. Nothing this marxist puppet has done works, but he can sure lie to himself that it does.
