Jake Tapper, Master of his Twitter domain: Seinfeld gives him shout-out

@jaketapper @daveweigel @IJasonAlexander
Nice conflation.
Not quite the same thing indeed.

— Jerry Seinfeld (@JerrySeinfeld) October 08, 2012

Oh, my! ABC’s Jake Tapper got a coveted Jerry Seinfeld shout-out on Twitter today for a report in which he made awesome “Seinfeld” references. Tapper was, of course, thrilled.

!!!!! RT @JerrySeinfeld: @jaketapper @daveweigel @IJasonAlexander Nice conflation. Not quite the same thing indeed.

Indeed! “Tapper OUT” is all that is needed now! Tapper’s report pointed out something that had been a joke on Twitter.

At speech in Colorado, President Obama tells Americans that the jerk store has run out of Mitt Romney.

President Obama’s debate performance was reminiscent of a “Seinfeld” episode titled, “The Comeback.” In the episode, character George Costanza came up with a snappy comeback way too late.

Reilly: Hey George, the ocean called. They’re running outta shrimp.
(George drives along. He’s fuming at Reilly’s dig.)
George: (Angry, to himself) The ocean called. Running outta shrimp. Outta shrimp! (A thought occurs) Oh! Yes! That’s what I shoulda said! (Frustrated shout) Dammit!
[New York Health & Racquet club]
Jerry: ‘The ocean called, they’re running outta shrimp’?
George: Yeah, yeah, yeah. But then, I said to him, ‘Oh yeah? Well, the jerk store called, and they’re running outta you.’
Jerry: (Smiling) Really? That’s great. You said that to him?
George: (Confessing) Well, actually, I thought it up on the way over here.
Jerry: Oh. That’s not quite the same.

Tapper equates President Obama’s lame Big Bird “comebacks,” hours and hours after the debate, to that episode. Oh, snap!

Jerry Seinfeld self-quoted from the episode in his tweet: “Not quite the same,” and Twitter users love it.

@jaketapper it took a tweet from @JerrySeinfeld for me to finally find out what @daveweigel was tweeting about. #ourworld #awesome

@jaketapper @JerrySeinfeld Jake, what I love is you and Jerry Seinfeld are in my almost solely politics twitter feed … worlds colliding!

— keithbacker (@keithbacker) October 8, 2012

It’s like another “Seinfeld” episode: “The Bizarro Jerry.” Worlds colliding, indeed.

And many others are green with jealousy over the Tweet-out from Seinfeld.

@jaketapper @jerryseinfeld @daveweigel @ijasonalexander Tapper gets Seinfeld mention I've dreamed of my whole life. Burning with jealousy

@jaketapper You're now my hero (cc @JerrySeinfeld)

But not everyone is squee-ing.

@JerrySeinfeld @jaketapper @daveweigel @IJasonAlexander Did Tapper actually refer to http://t.co/Jf5SMX8f as Mr. am???

— David Burns (@dcb1995) October 8, 2012

@jaketapper The fact that you ignored the part where @jerryseinfeld said "it's not quite the same thing" makes me question your reporting.

@JerrySeinfeld @jaketapper @daveweigel @ijasonalexander thats what makes Seinfeld so great! It conflates w/ nearly everything in life <3 it!
