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?
