Here we go again: "Friday Night Lights" creator asks Romney to drop show line from stump speech


Republicans often get into hot water with creative types. Here are a few examples:

Team Romney is no exception:

Now it's October 12, 2012, and the creator of the TV series “Friday Night Lights” is all over Willard for using the show's regularly-used phrase “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” in the candidate's stump speech. He called it "plagiarism" but didn't threaten any legal action.

The L.A. Times:

“Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series,” [show creator Peter] Berg wrote. [...]

Berg said use of the expression “falsely and inappropriately” associated the GOP campaign with the hit television show.

He said the only character on the show who might appropriately be associated with Romney would be the character of the car salesman, Buddy Garrity, who gives up on American autos to sell Japanese makes.


Closed eyes, full of crap, can lose.
