Greg Dworkin gets us back on track with his roundup. More from Kinsley. Why he's wrong. EPA to regulate emissions by executive authority, and the likely fallout. Terry Lynn Land is terrible. McConnell fares no better. And could Andrew Cuomo be a test case for pulling Hillary left? Want to help Charles Gaba help MI? Gun news roundup: a public AR-15 whoopsie; WalMart #GunFAIL nearly took out a newborn infant; more bullets fly in Isla Vista. Conclusion of Andrew O'Hehir's "The empire strikes back," and the start of Eben Moglen's "Privacy under attack" set us up for some serious discussion of the national security state.

Sam Wang handicaps the election handicappers. Concerned about veterans' health care? Expand Medicaid. Iran's bomb-making capacity is diminished. Had you heard? If not, why not? Abortion? Michael Boggs knows nothing about it! Mitch McConnell word salads his health care position. Bonkersghazi civil war continues. Speaking of which, Rand Paul gets himself four Pinocchios on the subject.

Even as the tide turns on marriage equality, we're reminded that some think they can turn it on a dime, because "tradition." And the oldest Member of the House ever looks to win his primary. Dark money at work in Arkansas. Twitter was buzzing about corporate social media. What was the Boston "fusion center" tracking while missing the marathon bombing? Occupy. Boing Boing notes new NYT chief Baquet spiked the biggest pre-Snowden NSA story. Speaking of the NSA, the prescience of Justice Brandeis.
