First of all, if you haven't seen the hilarious "Between Two Ferns" video from Funny or Die of Zach Galifianakis interviewing President Obama, stop everything and do it now. It's that good.

Then when you're done—or if you've already watched it—prepare for round two of hilarity, because conservatives were not amused. Fox, perhaps in a panic because the video is now the number one referrer to HealthCare.gov, hosted a four-person panel to debate the topic of whether the video was silly or effective.

Fox News on Obama Between Two Ferns Interview:
The answer, of course, is actually both. But that didn't stop the outrage. On Fox's morning show, the hosts called it "unfortunate" and "tragic." And the conservative displeasure spilled over onto Twitter:
Instead of wasting time with a parody interview, he should be focusing on finding answers re: #Benghazi
No, that's not a random Tweeter. That's U.S. Congressman Randy Weber, Republican of Texas. And he wasn't alone:
Yeah, presiding over America's decline is a knee-slapper. "Obama’s New Approach Takes a Humorous Turn" http://t.co/...

News is doomed. Sharyl Attkisson resigns, and our press conferences are prank-interviews by a dumbass from the Hangover movies.
Cheer up, guys. It's not all bad news. Thanks to this Funny or Die bit, millions of people will get the message that if they don't have health insurance, they now have the opportunity to sign up for affordable, quality coverage. And that means a healthier, more secure America. That's a good thing—unless you'd rather see somebody die than get covered.
