Quote of the Day, There Are No Magic Government Gnomes edition.

Ain’t it the truth:

If the government can’t build a health care website, how is it going to actually run health care for an entire country is the obvious question that so many are asking. And the obvious answer is that it will run it the way it ran the website. It will throw wads of money and people at the problem and then look for programs it doesn’t like to squeeze for extra cash.

The Navy had to be cut to the bone and the Benghazi mission had to make do without security so that a Canadian company which began employing a classmate of Michelle Obama’s could score over half a billion to build a broken website.

Via @charlescwcooke.  Admittedly, I am a bit more… ‘optimistic’ is not the right word.  I merely have the expectation that the Gods of the Copybook Headings have yet to speak up.  And that when they do, it will be merely painful, and not actually fatal.
