Connie: Mitt's Full of Something and It Ain't Heart, Y'all

One of my faves, even in the new soap opera "Nashville," Connie Britton,  has co-written a column for USA Today hitting Romney for mis-using "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" from Friday Night Lights, set in Dillon, TX. (Of course, she played Tammy, coach's wife.)  She writes,  "Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show -- the women we are in real life -- are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions. Women who want to earn equal pay for the work we do. Women who want affordable health care....

"So as women, let's take 'Clear Eyes, Full Hearts/ back and use it as it was always intended -- as a motivator for progress, power, and greatness. Let's use our clear eyes and full hearts to vote early. 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."
