RoadRomney's claim that Barack Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China" is selected as PolitiFact's 2012 'Lie of the Year': "It’s not that President Obama and his campaign team were above falsehoods, either.

"Despite going down the road with a variety of artists, the planets have simply not aligned for us to engage the right talent at the right time. Therefore, we have made the decision to end this incredible journey on a high note on January 26 with our original stars intact."

RoadSports Illustrated honors Brendon Ayanbadejo for gay rights advocacy: "When three fundamentalist teammates staged what Ayanbadejo called 'an intervention,' he whipped out (a pro-gay marriage letter from a) minister.
