With such issues as the economy and immigration, the GOP debate on Tuesday lit up Twitter with an entirely unexpected topic: Michele Bachmann’s white jacket.
Whether or not that is a topic that requires discussion or not is beyond the scope of this article. The white buttoned blazer was compared to everything from a straight jacket to an admiral, and everything in between. There were so many “Captain Crunch” and “Admiral” tweets that we had to pick a few which were representative of the sentiment filling our Twitter feed.
There were hundreds of tweets about the jacket in question, but below are 20 of our favorites. So without further delay, here are the top 20 Tweets about Michele Bachmann’s white jacket:
