Mitt Romney is still riding ‘Friday Night Lights’ wave despite Peter Berg’s letter

Last Friday, “Friday Night Lights” executive producer Peter Berg sent Mitt Romney a letter, asking the presidential hopeful to stop using the show’s signature phrase, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” as his campaign slogan.

“Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series,” Berg said before comparing Romney to the show’s prime good ‘ol boy, Buddy Garrity.

Well, Mitt Romney clearly was not daunted by Berg’s comments.

Romney aide D.G. Jackson tweeted that photo of the Republican candidate as he headed to the Hofstra University podium prior to Tuesday night’s town hall debate with President Obama. It’s very similar to previous photos the campaign has tweeted, before Berg tried to issue a Dillon, Tex. moratorium on all this.

Romney also has not changed his Facebook page, which still features the “Clear eyes” phrase and a photo of Romney walking into a driving rain like a warrior prepared for an intense Mud Bowl game.

Berg has not commented yet on this latest tweet, nor has he objected (yet) to the fact that Romney is clearly taking debate instruction from Billy Riggins. Who do you think came up with binders full of women? That’s classic Riggins.

To be continued....
