Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, December 22.

*Kerry Named for the Role of a Lifetime
*Obama turns focus to getting stopgap deal
*Bitter fight over taxes sends Republican Party into chaos
*'Plan B' collapses; House approves Cantor bill on spending reductions (Can'tor's bill would be devastating for the country, for Virginia, and for his district. Not that he cares.)
*John Boehner's animal House
*Education groups: Guns in teachers' hands not the answer
*Democrats Slam NRA's Response To School Shooting
*Everything You Need To Know About The NRA's Wayne LaPierre (Among other things, LaPierre called law enforcement officials "jackbooted thugs." He's a nutjob and a fascist.)
*'Debt ceiling roulette': Sen. Warner sounds off on 'cliff' deal
*Virginia GOP names new executive director
*Griffith responds to new EPA boiler standards (Griffith denies climate science and is a tool of the fossil fuel industry. He should not be listened to on anything.)
*Potential Hampton Roads ports strike is less than 10 days away
*Atheist group's billboards in Roanoke area draw strong reaction
*Federal employees to get Christmas Eve off
*Nationals want an answer soon from Adam LaRoche
