Republican Leadership Problems As Told By Seinfeld
Why does this one annoy me so much? I mean, it's so easy and fun to laugh at Republican leadership. They're buffoons, they really are. And Seinfeld
is great! And yet this list rubs me the wrong way for the simple reason that in referencing some of the most beloved TV characters of all time, we risk forgetting that the fact that Tea Party-affiliated members of Congress are constantly threatening to fuck with the Affordable Care Act, and any other legislation that goes against their agenda. This is actually kind of a big deal. Our legislative leaders are being held hostage to the Tea Party. While this particular instance won't have any lasting effect on Obamacare, it is still worrisome, made more so by what we've seen happening to healthcare on a state-level. Even so, this is probably the least offensive "explained by GIFs" list BuzzFeed has done. But it's still annoying.
