Connie Britton wrote an op-ed piece for USA Today voicing her distaste for Mitt Romney’s use of a certain Friday Night Lights phrase:
“Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose,” was the battle cry for the high school football teams of Dillon, Texas, on the TV show Friday Night Lights for five seasons. But the show wasn’t just about football. And “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” wasn’t just about winning games. Rather, it was a rallying cry of hope and optimism in a community where everyone had a fair shot—no matter their background, no matter their parents, no matter their gender. And no matter their politics. So it has been surprising that the phrase has been usurped and co-opted by Mitt Romney and his campaign for their gain.
Let’s use our clear eyes and full hearts to tell every friend, family member, and neighbor about what’s at stake for women in this election. What’s at stake for all of us.
Paul McCartney recently told the BBC in a TV interview set to air next month that he doesn’t believe that Yoko Ono broke up The Beatles:
“She certainly didn’t break the group up, I don’t think you can blame her for anything. When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things. She showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for John to leave.”
