Someone, somewhere was able to log onto and create an account on the site this week. CNN claims to have called all of the state health insurance exchanges for a tally of applications, and learned that 52,000 had been “started.” What that means exactly, we don’t know.

What it does mean, though, is tens of millions are going to need to sign up quickly to make this thing financially viable, at least in government terms.

The site is scheduled for maintenance and improvements in the off-peak hours this weekend; have glitches kept tens of millions from getting through? Traffic was reportedly in the millions, but how many people were window shopping against their current insurance policies, looking for those lower premiums they were promised?

Of course, we’re doing math here without verified numbers, but they just don’t seem to add up no matter how optimistically you look at it.

Most transparent administration ever!
