More on electoral politics and “Friday Night Lights”

A follow-up to my post about Mitt Romney coopting “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” from Friday Night Lights and the objections of the show’s producer:

Dan Hopkins (political science at Georgetown), writing at The Monkey Cage, applies a model to predict how the major characters would have voted in 2008. He concludes that pretty much everyone would have voted for McCain, including Mrs. Coach, although I am not sure I agree with that one. He does not discuss Julie Taylor (Coachette, if you will), whose “get-me-out-of-this-small-town” attitude likely makes her a Democrat. Definitely worth a read.
