Every time Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean makes a brash, mean-spirited comment or appears on a national television show, I'm reminded of a certain Seinfeld episode. It's the one where George is hoping to get an extension on his unemployment benefits but needs to prove that he has been looking for work. He hasn't had any recent prospects so he makes up Vandelay Industries and claims that he interviewed for the job of latex salesman. Since this company doesn't exist he gives Jerry's number as the contact number and begs Jerry to answer his phone by saying, "Vandelay Industries" and say that George was interviewed for the job of latex salesman. This scheme fails at the end of the episode when Kramer answers the phone and denies any knowledge of Vandelay Industries while George is in the bathroom. At the end of the phone conversation George stampedes out of the bathroom desperately trying to get Kramer to say "Vandelay Industries." When Kramer hangs up, George has fallen on the floor with his pants around his ankles.
The scene ends with Jerry saying, "And you want to be my latex salesman."
There have got to be tons of Democrats around the country thinking to themselves, "And you want to be my Democratic National Committee Chairman."
If you can't remember this Seinfeld episode, it also featured former professional baseball player and current men's hair care product spokesman Keith Hernandez and the story of the infamous "magic loogie."
