During yesterday's debate, Mitt Romney shocked the world by making a Seinfeld reference when he quoted George Costanza. It was almost as though Romney had spent some of his Earthly hours watching television. The thought of him sitting on a couch, perhaps with several bowls of snacks surrounding him, staring at a TV set and occasionally chuckling warmly, was enough to inspire many debate viewers to feel faint, as though they were staring at the sun for too long.
But every time Romney pulls on his human skin-suit and tries to pretend he's like everyone else, it backfires horribly. In this case, it inspired Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on Seinfeld, to send off the best post-debate Tweet of the night:
Thrilled Gov. Romney enjoys my old character. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he'd embrace that again, he'd b a great candidate.
