    Costanza Gives Romney a Piece of His Mind

    Mitt Romney loves to reference Seinfeld and, more specifically, his favorite character, George Costanza, perhaps as an effort to show he has a sense of humor and a hip side. Because what’s hipper than being obsessed with a show that was all the rage 20 years ago? Romney even quoted Constanza when he was introduced at Wednesday night’s GOP debate. “As George Costanza would say, when they’re applauding, stop,” he said to the audience and Americans watching at home, which included none other than the man behind George Costanza himself, Jason Alexander. The Seinfeld actor responded to Romney’s Costanza references on Twitter on Thursday morning with some words of advice. “Thrilled Gov. Romney enjoys my old character,” he wrote. “I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he’d embrace that again, he’d b a great candidate.”
