Plastic Mitt’s Failed Attempts at Cultural References

In an attempt to seem human in the debate last night, Mitt Romney threw out a cultural reference, albeit an old one, to Seinfeld.  He said, “As George Costanza would say, when they’re applauding, stop.”

The quote didn’t sound right to me, since I couldn’t recall poor George ever getting applauded for anything.  The quote was actually from Jerry Seinfeld talking to George and went like this, “You hit that high note, you say good night and walk off.”

Not a big deal, but I doubt Mitt was ever a Seinfeld fan, so it just adds to his image of a phony trying to connect to regular people.
