Mittens promises to cut taxes by $5 trillion -- and he also promises not to raise taxes on the middle class or increase the deficit.

Realizing the candidate hadn't quite done the math, Democrats have launched RomneyTaxPlan.com.

The joke? The button won't let you click for details.

Friday Night Lights writer-director Peter Berg is not impressed that Mitt Romney has co-opted the series' infamous "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" phrase on his Facebook page and in his campaign speeches:

Here's his biting letter to the Romney campaign:

Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series. The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan.

Fun twist: Buzz Bissinger, who wrote the book on which Berg's movie and TV series are based, is a Romney supporter.

And the award for most over-the-top ad spot goes to the Dems -- just weeks from Election Day and they decide to go with this?

"I just want to make sure I got this straight. He'll get rid of regulations on Wall Street — but he's going to crack down on Sesame Street!"

Big Bird and Co. are not impressed:

Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.

At least we can all agree on one thing: their houses are probably nicer than all of ours.

This insane Taiwanese news program continues to recap world events with the most bizarre animation. Their take on the Obama - Romney debate features fire breath, the Gangnam Style dance, and Big Bird's violent chainsaw murder.

Politics, right?

Mittens just can't catch a break -- behold his deeply tanned Univision appearance Thursday that has the blogosphere cackling.

"Mitt's Mexican tan?" asked makeup artist Michele Probst. "That was very curious. ... To me, that had to have been someone's idea. Someone said, 'Let's try to relate to people.'"

In an effort to distract from the poor paint job, the campaign today finally released the candidate's 2011 tax returns — the Romneys paid $1.9 million in taxes on $13.7 million in income, which comes out to 14.1 percent.
