Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk berated Marilyn Tavenner — the Obama administration bureaucrat in charge of the messy HealthCare.gov rollout — during a Senate hearing investigating the site’s failures Tuesday. But he also confused the room with what he explained was a bit of Navy lingo.

“I was just thinking what might happen when you were getting ready for this hearing,” Kirk said, envisioning that Tanner made a phone call to CGI Federal — the company that built the Obamacare site — and said, “It’s Carolyn [sic]. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot on my website?”

Tanner didn’t reply.
