The Obama­care web­site is down, and the gov­ern­ment con­tract­ors re­spons­ible are hav­ing to an­swer for their mis­takes. But that’s not news to any­body. Now, late-night has a nov­el solu­tion to the prob­lem: namely, let the NSA take over.

And speak­ing of the NSA, the rest of the world is again tak­ing no­tice of U.S. sur­veil­lance pro­grams. It’s hit­ting closer to home, with re­ports that the NSA is tap­ping the private calls of for­eign lead­ers, in­clud­ing Ger­man Prime Min­is­ter An­gela Merkel. 

This can’t pos­sibly end well.
