AS ALWAYS, LIFE IMITATES SEINFELD:

KRAMER: Alright, so there I am at Lorenzo’s — loading up my slice of the fixin’s bar.. garlic, (imitates the shaking of garlic onto a pizza) and what-not… mmm, mmm… and I see this guy over at the pizza boxes giving me the stink-eye. (Imitates the ‘stink-eye’) So I give hime the crook-eye back, (Imitates the ‘crook-eye’) you know… Then, I notice that he’s not alone! I’m taking on the entire Van Buren Boys!

JERRY: The Van Buren Boys? There’s a street gang named after President Martin Van Buren?

KRAMER: Oh yeah, and they’re just as mean as he was!

Flash-forward to today; the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, “A St. Louis teen who authorities say is a member of a gang called the ‘Obama Boyz’ has been charged with two shootings on Saturday.”

Like many in Hollywood, [Jason Alexander, who played uber-nebbish George Costanza] has been a fervent Obama supporter and has criticized the so-called “1-percent” even though he is a part of it.

“I do not want to live in that 1-percent.  I don’t believe in it,” Alexander said. “I don’t think our country, or any country, runs well when the 1-percent is thriving and the rest are suffering and struggling.”

Alexander was reported to earn six hundred thousand dollars per episode in his final season on Seinfeld.
