Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just can’t win for losing.
Speaking in the Rose Garden Friday on her sudden retirement, with President Barack Obama at her side, Sebelius seemed to misplace the final page of her farewell speech.
“Unfortunately, a page is missing,” she said out loud as she realized it was not there. Ad-libbing better than her boss would have, Sebelius concluded: “So I’m just grateful for having had this wonderful opportunity.”
Yep, just as she botched the launch of the Obamacare web site, she bungled her farewell to the nation. And as might be expected, Twitter users were quick to point out what a “fitting farewell” it was. As documented by Twitchy:

And if you think it doesn’t get any better than that, you’re wrong. It gets a lot better:
Sebelius’ missing page from her farewell speech at the White House is perhaps, the perfect metaphor for her tenure. #Obamacare

Apparently one of the pages in Sebelius’ speech said: 404 Error — Matthew (@Matthops82) April 11, 2014
The page is not missing. It’s just down temporarily because too many Sebeliuses are trying to access it. — Jim Antle (@jimantle) April 11, 2014
Oh, my God, Sebelius actually bungled her FAREWELL SPEECH. This Administration is truly beyond parody.
