    John McAfee. Just chiming in with a bit of levity.  Dylan Scott, TPM:

    The House Energy and Commerce Committee asked John McAfee, the tech security guru who went on the lam in Central America last year under suspicion of murder, to examine the troubled rollout of Obamacare's online insurance website, according to CNBC....

    The committee sought McAfee, who was deported to the United States last December after being detained in Guatemala, to "guide our oversight and review of" the website's launch, according to an email obtained by CNBC.

    McAfee was suspected last year of murdering his neighbor while living in Belize. He was never charged and vehemently denied the accusation.

    The consultation never occured, but that didn't stop McAfee from sharing his thoughts with noted right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones in an interview posted Tuesday on Jones's website.

    "My advice would be: Throw it away, and start over," McAfee said. "You cannot fix the system that's there. It is impossible, the way it is architected, any good programmer will tell you, it's just not going to work... It will never work the way that it is."

    OK, then!  Duel of "experts" goes off the deep end!
