Here are some Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday morning, July 25.

*Cantor Opposed Short-Term Debt Ceiling Increase, Now Calls Obama’s Opposition to Short-Term Increase ‘Indefensible’ (Can’tor continues to make absolutely no sense, to basically say whatever is politically expedient at any given moment, and to be completely reckless/irresponsible about our nation’s future)

*Va. sheds nearly quarter of new jobs gained in past 16 months (so much for “Bob’s for Jobs;” it turns out that Virginia “has made ‘no real progress’ in boosting employment” since McDonnell became governor, also “lost more than twice as many jobs as during the deep recession of the early 1990s, and more than three times that of any other recession in Virginia’s history”)

*General Assembly: Judge not

*Op-ed: Reduce spending to restore the economy (George Allen proves, definitively, that he knows absolutely ZERO about economics. Zip.)

*Warner calls for vote on Gang of Six plan (According to Warner, who worships bipartisanship almost as a deity, “We’re still the only bipartisan effort in this town”)

*Allen, Kaine: Base schools

*Senator Webb Cosponsors Bipartisan Bill to Delay EPA Boiler MACT Rule (I mean, I’m glad we “drafted” Jim Webb and elected him, but he’s utterly awful on energy/enviro issues)

*Editorial: Governor to legislators: Scram

*Evan Moss update: Hundreds turn out, thousands raised

*Jones’ mayoral campaign fund raises $70,646

*For Virginia companies, campaign donations to lawmakers just another cost of doing business

*Zoo animals try to keep cool in heat
