Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin is making a strong case for enshrinement into the "Say What Now?" Hall of Fame after his latest remarks about incumbent senator, Claire McCaskill:

She goes to Washington, D.C., it's a little bit like one of those dogs, you know 'fetch'. She goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and she brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri.

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is under fire for comments he made Thursday night in his final debate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth -- he said he opposes abortion "without exception," even when the life of the mother is at stake.

The trouble came when the Tea Partier doubled down on his position with the media afterward:

There's no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.

The facts Walsh used to justify his position have been proven absolutely false. In fact, studies show that pregnancy-related deaths for women are on the rise.

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.

In case you missed Thursday night's VP debate, here's the best -- and sassiest -- recap.

Meanwhile, the latest GOP campaign spot sticks it to ol' Joe:

Vice President Biden is laughing... are you? At the 2012 Vice Presidential debate, Vice President Biden spent 90 minutes laughing and rolling his eyes to try and distract from his inability to defend the last four years and provide a vision for the next four.

What say you -- was the veep's laughter as inappropriate as the RNC claims?
