The utter lack of surprise in Sebelius’ voice helped sell her reaction as genuine:

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of Health and Human Services and the White House’s chief Obamacare cheerleader, was left ashen-faced during a photo-op on Tuesday when volunteers helping Floridians use healthcare.gov were faced with a website that didn’t work.

While reporters trailed her during a tour of a Miami hospital, one noticed that the site was crashing.

‘The screen says, “I’m sorry but the system is temporarily down,”‘ CBS-TV4 reporter Brian Andrews told Sebelius, who could only mutter a surprised, ‘Uh oh.’

The “navigator” loyally toed the administration’s line by saying the site crash “must mean there are a lot of people on there trying to get coverage.” Maybe there will be a little something extra in that navigator’s holiday paycheck, such as an Obamacare waiver.

Sebelius does deserve some credit for inadvertently trying to coin the term “Uh oh-bamacare.”
