Yeah … that’s not a compliment.

This afternoon, the White House pimped a new video starring celebrities who haven’t signed up for Obamacare telling us to sign up for Obamacare. Unfortunately, they forgot to run their tweet by the Grammar Fairy first:

D’oh.

Wouldn’t it, though?

So there’s that. Oh, and did we mention that nobody’s buying what the White House is selling?

Giddy journalists prepare for #NerdProm 2014

http://twitter.com/#!/exjon/status/462052810675068928

Will the organizers of Saturday night’s White House Correspondents Dinner — also known as #nerdprom — tone things down after last year’s glitzy red carpet affair? Of course not. Journalists are busy getting ready for the big night, when reporters sit with celebrities to be roasted by the president.

The Hill has the rundown on who’s taking whom. For example, Patrick Duffy of “Dallas” fame will attend as a guest of Fortune magazine.
