Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, June 24. Also, check out the instant classic video of David Gregory asking Glenn Greenwald if he should be held criminally culpable for “aiding and abetting” Edward Snowden, and Greenwald firing back. Hilarious, in a pathetic kind of way.

*Russia defiant as US raises pressure over Snowden

*Legislative relief from defense cuts? Maybe. But no solution

*South Africa: Nelson Mandela in critical condition

*John Boehner’s implosion

*Wemple: NBC’s Gregory flops versus Greenwald (As much as I dislike uber-narcissist Glenn Greenwald, I really REALLY dislike the ultimate tool, David Gregory.)

*Smart policy, not political sound bites (“An early childhood education expert hopes the issue will be a priority in this year’s elections.”)

*A rural jobs  blueprint (“McDonnell’s rural jobs  council confronts economic  challenges.”)

*Support snowballs ahead of Senate vote on immigration bill (“Immigration reform has gotten a new burst of life as a growing number of Senate Republicans have embraced the 1,000-page-plus legislation, setting up President Obama for a big victory this week.”)

*Cuccinelli Stretches Labor Argument Vs. McAuliffe (The Cuccinelli campaign is just throwing stuff at the wall at this point, hoping something might stick. Kind of pitiful, really.)

*Already flawed Va. candidates and campaigns further stain each other by twisting foe’s words (This column’s entire premise epitomizes the flawed, “both sides,” false equivalency the “mainstream media” loves to engage in. Blech.)

*Principal of struggling Virginia school asks state for more time to improve

*Questions and hope for third crossing

*Fairfax has the land, money to establish cemetery for the poor

*D.C. area forecast: Humid today with some showers, heat on the way

*Nationals vs. Rockies: Washington falls back under .500 after late rally falls short
