Mrs. Coach speaks
posted by Howard Wasserman
Still more on the dust-up over Mitt Romney using Clear Eyes, Full Hearts in his campaign and speeches: Actress Connie Britton (who played Tami Taylor, a/k/a Mrs. Coach) and Sarah Aubrey (an executive producer on the show) wrote an op-ed in USA Today criticizing Romney for using the slogan, insisting that the women of Dillon, Texas would not approve. The piece particularly focuses on issues of health care and women’s rights–ACA, equal pay, the future viability of Planned Parenthood (they point out that the single mother of star running back “Smash” Williams worked there, a detail I did not know or remember).
Anyway, draw your own conclusions.
