Whiny Rant is Whiny

Does NYT choose op-ed contributors to make their in-house punditubbies look good? Exhibit A, Lori Gottlieb’s whiny and clueless rant about Obamacare. She has a sad because her anti-ACA Facebook post got just one like.  She is upset that her Facebook friends did not applaud her brave act of complaining about Obamacare’s supposed deficiencies.   Joining a chorus funded by billionaires and an entire political party, how could her friends not applaud this singular act of bravery?

“Obamacare or Kafkacare?” I posted on Facebook as soon as I hung up with Anthem. I vented about the call and wrote that the president should be protecting the middle class, not making our lives substantially harder. For extra sympathy, I may have thrown in the fact that I’m a single mom. (O.K., I did.)

Then I sat back and waited for the love to pour in. Or at least the “like.” Lots of likes. After all, I have 1,037 Facebook friends. Surely, they’d commiserate.

Except that they didn’t.

Paul Waldman of the American Prospect takes Ms Gottlieb to task, over her ridiculous opinion piece.

The Health Care Marketplace is in good paws now, in the interim if you are looking for someone to blame, Gail Collins has some suggestions.

Beltway Media discovers the Blue Screen of Death

On cable news and in the newspapers the biggest topic being discussed is not how the GOP ‘s attempt at sabotaging the economy cost the taxpayers billions of dollars but how the online health care exchanges are awful.  Everyone from Jon Stewart to Ezra Klein is piling on.   That the  Federal Health Care exchange site covers states with GOP governors who have tried everything in their power to sabotage a smooth rollout, hardly merits a mention.  They are behaving as if they have never heard of software problems or glitches or bugs in newly launched software, ever.  Guess they never used Windows Vista.

Blue Screen of Death  Strikes again
