I know, so does almost every American. Personally, if I see one more sign around town that says “Vote for Coal,” I’m going to lose my mind, because I’m pretty sure that coal isn’t even running this year. But we’re all about those wacky celebrities over here, so why don’t we check in on what they think about all these shenanigans?
First of all, did you know that good ol’ Mitt has been using a motto from Friday Night Lights? I didn’t, because why would I even watch that show ever, but it’s true. Mitt’s been saying “Clear eyes, full heart, can’t lose,” which is pretty much bullshit coming from him anyway, and he’s even been selling bracelets with the slogan on it. But you know who said it first? The kids on Friday Night Lights. A show about high school football.
One of the actresses on the show, Connie Britton, and executive producer Sarah Aubrey came together to write a piece for USA Today about Mitt’s silly choice, and here’s some of what they had to say:
“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.
“Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. In fact, it is President Obama who has shown his values to be more closely aligned with those represented by the phrase.”
“Who’s registered to vote? I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.”
After she got booed, she tried to fix it by saying “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for. Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote.” But hey, would you have guessed enough Republicans to generate audible boos would be at a Madonna concert?
Finally, Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy, Firefly, and all things good in this world, released his own video with a shocking endorsement of Romney:
If there was any confusion about anything, I hope that video cleared it up for you. Now listen to Madonna and go vote, fellow Americans!
