Mitt Romney and George Costanza
What better way to let average Joes know you're one of them than with reference to everyman George Costanza?
Unfortunately, Romney got the quote wrong and made himself an easy target for Seinfeld's Jason Alexander. At the debate Wednesday, Romney quipped: "As George Costanza would say, when they're applauding, stop." But the line was Jerry's, who actually said, "Showmanship, George. When you hit the high note, you say goodnight and walk off." In response, Alexander tweeted, "Thrilled Gov. Romney enjoys my old characer. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he'd embrace that again, he'd b a great candidate."
