Opening Arguments

How do you sell a lemon?

I, uh, well, gee, you know, um, er:

In Connecticut, selling Obamacare involves renting an airplane. Oregon might try to reel in hipsters with branded coffee cups for their lattes. And in neighboring Washington, the effort could get quite intimate: The state is interested in sponsoring portable toilets at concerts in an effort to reach uninsured young adults.

OK, you may now create your own version of the "government is in the crapper where it belongs" joke, or perhaps a version of "Obamacare is full of s---." I wonder how people who used to specialize in parody are making a living these days.

Yeah, reel in those hipsters, man. "I wanted free health care, and all I got was this lousy mug."
