Pandermania! RNC says ‘all Republicans support equal pay’!/GOP/status/506524410158006272
We get that the RNC is trying to zing the White House for its rank hypocrisy on this issue. But seeming to embrace the socialist notion that the government should mandate equal pay by gender is a total messaging #fail.

‘Come on! Really?’ Even CNN’s not buying Jay Carney’s weak spin of WH pay gap

White House: Want proof Obamacare is working? Watch this ‘Daily Show’ bit

Obamacare has had its share of criticism, and according to the White House none of it is fair or justifiable. The White House’s evidence? This segment from Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”:

Millions signed up for health coverage through the ACA. What came next? The #ObamacareApocalypse: (via @TheDailyShow)

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) September 12, 2014

As if “Between Two Ferns” wasn’t already enough to convince everybody.

Something was left out:

@WhiteHouse @TheDailyShow They had no choice. They lost the plan you said they could keep

@WhiteHouse Millions lost their insurance! #backtosquareone @TheDailyShow

@WhiteHouse @TheDailyShow They found out their premiums had skyrocketed, they couldn't keep their doctors, & the POTUS won Lie of the Year.

@WhiteHouse @TheDailyShow Well it certainly devastated my paycheck. Premiums increased &1st time in 10 years I've had a deductible. #fail

Ironically, actual examples of an #ObamacareApocalypse went unmentioned in the #ObamacareApocalypse video.

Interesting times when the @WhiteHouse tweets out a sarcastic hashtag with a link to @TheDailyShow. #ObamacareApocalypse

@WhiteHouse How telling is it that the White House relies on "data" and psuedo-reporting to bolster support for the ACA? #graspingatstraws

— Spam Man (@TheEmailHead) September 12, 2014

In defense of the White House citing a “Daily Show” bit as evidence Obamacare is working, at least nobody at Comedy Central has been a “Lie of the Year” recipient. Well, not counting the time Obama was Jon Stewart’s guest.

‘Enchantment under the Hairplugs’: Joe Biden invited to prom!/jlub84/status/468398520517799936
Calling him the “most delightful man in America” a high school student in Connecticut wrote a letter to Vice President Joe Biden inviting him to her prom. Biden declined but he sent her a corsage and invited her to the White House. We haven’t confirmed whether her parents have scheduled her CAT scan yet.

The invitation even spawned a hashtag game: #JoeBidenPromThemes.!/CrankyGordon/status/468534134583746560
