A SuperPAC supporting Obama is under fire for airing an ad in which a steelworker accused Romney of making decisions that led to his wife's death. The women, however, had life insurance after her husband lost his job.

This actually kind of works! And slightly hammy acting aside, I'm blown away by the level of special effects these guys were able to pull off in an unofficial movie about a 32-year-old game. The 3D sequences almost look like Tron: Legacy.
She kisses his ring! And Mark Kelly slips him their book.
Seriously, quit making these out of touch panels immediately. They make so little sense they actually ruin suspension of disbelief.
Lochte, poignant as usual: "We're done with our part of the Olympics, but they're still going on... it's kinda weird."

And doctors can't figure out why. Plus, Alf is coming to the big screen and a new plug-in hides the products of child labor from your online shopping experience.
It's the magazine's biggest issue of the year — and Gaga's hair is big enough to hammer home the point.
Both sides have pretty much stopped talking about the economy, and are just throwing mud.
The Buzz heightens as Romney and his surrogates travel the country. Will the announcement come by the end of the weekend?
