With just 20 days to go until the open enrollment period ends for Obamacare exchanges, comedian Zach Galifianakis has done the administration a solid.

 


That tweet is from Tara McGuinness, a White Housesenior communications advisor.

Not sure that’s something for the administration to brag about.

But for Galifianakis, it's certainly brag-worthy, although maybe he won't want to play it up, considering the unpopularity of the law.

Update, 4:45pm: The Weekly Standard's John McCormack reports that 19,000 people who viewed Galifianakis' "Funny or Die" interview with Obama visited healthcare.gov.

That number is equal to 2 percent of the website's total signups for February.
