Nothing works like it's supposed to! Greg Dworkin rounds up primary day news, starting with the Tea Party's continued struggle to find purpose, and where the big money is being spent. Are Republicans set for a pivot to climate change (in a bad way)? "Republicans getting away with utter gibberish on Obamacare," and "McConnell Is No Longer the King of Kentucky." Then today's story mash-up: Quinn Norton's "Everything is Broken," "why I was forced to shut down Lavabit," and yesterday's mash-up of NSA follies & the legal system. Whatever you're an expert in, there's someone else, somewhere, who's an expert in undoing you, using a system you don't understand but have to interface with, anyway.
