The 25 Happiest Animals In The World

Here are some ridiculously happy animals who have clearly figured something out that they will hopefully share with the rest of us when they are done frolicking or whatever.

Romney's Boast: "I'm Gonna Win In Michigan" (In November)

The polls close at 9 p.m., and early exit polling suggests a narrow Romney lead. Romney promised last night that he'd beat Barack Obama in Michigan in November. He's not that confident about tonight. [UPDATED: An earlier version of this post said Romney's quote was ambiguous; it isn't.]

Dancing Tigers

If they were in the least bit smart, "Dancing With The Stars" would pair Urkel with a live Siberian tiger. Spotted in Austria at the Vienna Zoo.

Jennifer Lawrence Gets Sexy For Glamour And Other Links

Santorum: I'm The Heavyweight

Fox News Crashes The Oscars

The man on the street encounters made for awkward encounters with some celebs when asked about politics.

Yeah... Shopping. Right. Good point Google subway ad. That's why everyone uses Incognito mode. What else could anyone possibly use it for?

A Note To CBS On Casting Lucy Liu As Watson In Their New Sherlock Holmes Show

I am typically not one to fall into the age old Internet trope of complaining about shows and movies that don't yet exist. But as there is already an amazing Sherlock Holmes TV show being made, CBS's forthcoming "Elementary" would be redundant even if the early news about the show seemed good. It doesn't. UPDATED NOTE: I have no objection whatsoever to Watson being played by a woman or a person of color. I simply have a problem with the fact that while an amazing modern retelling of the Holmes story (that's true in spirit to its source material) is being done in England, America is getting a heavily adapted and seemingly "Hollywoodized" version of the tale. All too often this leads to a dumbed down product. Why crowd another development season with a property that's already being done well at this very moment? I should have been clearer, and I sincerely apologize to anyone I may have offended.

George Romney's FBI File

The file, a compiled history of FBI investigations before his federal appointments, offers insight into the life and character of the former Governor and Housing and Urban Development Secretary. Agents' background interviews paint a picture of a Governor with a passion for civil rights, strict adherence to his Mormon faith, his "sensational tennis skills," and a friendly relationship with big labor. It also includes warm personal correspondence with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Here is the entire 345 page FBI file covering Romney's life until 1992.
