A new video of Missouri congressman Emanuel Cleaver allegedly getting spit on surfaced yesterday. This is the umpteenth footage of last Sunday's incident to make its way on the Internetz in the past several days, and perhaps the most conclusive.

Scroll to the 1:25 mark to see Cleaver get spit on (or not, depending on your political view).



Then tell us, doesn't this video -- and all the others -- remind you of something? Like maybe the Seinfeld episode below? Observe.
