You’ll be sure to want to catch the NBC Nightly News tonight; apparently the HealthCare.gov site is plagued with some serious technical problems that go way beyond “glitches,” and people are having trouble signing up after 10 days, let alone 10 minutes. No, really.

MSNBC was among the first networks to run up against these glitches, with a reporter giving up in frustration during a live-on-air demonstration. Trying to sign up has become a recurring segment on “Hannity.” And Twitchy has compiled hundreds of tweets from citizens who can’t log in successfully, like these folks.

Ah yes, the completely blank “success page” glitch. If there’s a better metaphor for the success of Obamacare, we can’t imagine it.
