The fictional New York gang who show a cult-like devotion to the eighth U.S. President, Martin Van Buren. This term originated, like many new additions to the American lexicon, in an episode (broadcast February 6, 1997) of the wildly popular TV sitcom "Seinfeld." In this episode, Kramer is saved when he accidentally flashes the gang's secret sign: holding up eight fingers, since Van Buren was the eighth President.
The rabid Bush supporters of the South reminded me of the Van Buren boys.
The so-called "feminazis" followed Clinton with an almost Van Buren boy-like obsession.
