The story behind the image:

The only warning State Sen. Brian Kelsey, R-Germantown, gave of what he intended to do at U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ visit to the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library Friday, Nov. 1, was that he would appear “in protest of the visit.” Before it was over, though, he’d done a little more than that. He presented the secretary with a copy of the book “Web Sites for Dummies,” a jab at her department’s problematic rollout of the federal health insurance website.

Perhaps that is a sign she should stop doing the promotional tour while the site isn’t working properly.

Consider that even the White House is dropping the promotional events:

Scrapping a planned push to drive people to the balky website, the White House is organizing a flurry of events on the economy and immigration, as well as health care, a senior administration official said.
