We don’t know the identity of the model whose face graces the splash page of online train wreck HealthCare.gov — we (and many others) are just glad we’re not her. It must be tough to be the face of failure on every news broadcast. Now, Obamacare Splash Page Stock Photo Girl has found a new gig, on the cover of the new National Review.

The clever cover re-creates the HealthCare.gov splash page with a few modifications, including a big green “Abandon Hope, All Who Click Here” button where the “Apply Online” button used to be. Another new feature is a “See Error Messages In Your Area” button.

    For a straight forward path had been lost.”

      Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Incompetence, I will fear no BSOD: for thou art with me; thy antivirus and thy firewall they comfort me.

    I love the names the Twitter & Twitchy folk come up with for people. ‘The X-Files’ had ‘The Smoking Man’ and ‘Well-Manicured Man’. Twitter/Twitchy have ‘Healthcare Beard Guy’ and now ‘Obamacare Splash Page Stock Photo Girl’. Can you remember some other characters from the Twitchy archive?

    Can you imagine going through life, having total strangers constantly coming up to you saying, “Don’t I know you from somewhere?”

      or, “Do you have any secret tricks to get into your stupid website?”

    For the millions of $$$ spent on TitanicCare.gov…

    …I wouldn’t be surprised to find out the splash page photos are all cut and pasted from an online photo service of some type…without paying the royalties.
