Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington

This week, researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (aka CERN) found God. Or at least "the god particle." A Big Bang of Higgs boson jokes ensued -- many of them involving a priest and a play on the word "mass." With the god particle out of the way, maybe the CERN folks can try to isolate Mitt Romney's position on health care next. Speaking of Romney, he took a break from competing in the "Romney Olympics" and riding jet skis on Lake Winnipesaukee to criticize President Obama for the dreary June jobs report and promise to create an economy where more Americans can "take a vacation now and then with their loved ones." HuffPost's Jason Cherkis offered a suggestion for a new Romney campaign slogan: "A jet ski in every pot." Finally, don't believe those sources: Chief Justice Roberts didn't write any of this Sunday Roundup.
