Greece may be on the verge of winning their first World Cup match ever. As glorious as this day may be for the debt-ridden nation, their best international soccer performance came in a game against Germany, courtesy of Monty Python.

Uh oh, Ron Johnson is apparently not doing enough to impress the Tea Partiers. It's encouraging to see some of the Tea Parties extending their distrust of federal government into national security and challenging the Patriot Act. Consistency is good.
Here's Johnson's response to questions on the Patriot Act: "I certainly share the concerns on civil liberties now that you have Barack Obama in power versus George Bush. I wasn't overly concerned with George Bush in power," he said.
