I’m a comedy nerd and have been a huge fan of Zach Galifianakis even before his “Late World with Zach” briefly made VH1 watchable. So unlike most people who have to follow politics for a living, I enjoyed Obama’s appearance on “Between Two Ferns” to plug the national insurance exchange website. At least it’s an intentional comedy program, unlike the Sunday shows which are all terrible and turn anyone who watches them into humorless prigs.

In actual ObamaCare news, Massachusetts’ insurance exchange remains FUBAR’d. My current insurance keeps getting extended, but I would like to have more permanent coverage. I am no longer a “young invincible” and would like insurance in case a lump starts growing in my balls or anywhere else, really.
