Peter Berg To Mitt Romney: "Get Your Own Slogan"

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has begun slinging a new campaign slogan: "Clear eyes and full hearts--and America can't lose!" --a variation on the tv show Friday Night Lights' "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." The show's Peter Berg has slung back, with a sharply worded letter the Hollywood Reporter has made available here.

Says Mr. Berg in part,

Your use of the phrase falsely and inappropriately associates "Friday Night Lights" with the Romney/Ryan campaign. Mitt, we all wish you and your family the best. We are grateful for your support of our beloved show, but we are not in any way affiliated with you or your campaign. Please come up with your own campaign slogan.
