Shearer needs a sweater vest, Ctd

I blogged about Stephen Harper’s sweater vest and made the suggestion that David Shearer should get a sweater vest.More evidence has surfaced about the power of the sweater vest. David Shearer really should be looking for one on his tour of the bar, pubs and clubs this summer.

Rick Santorum came second to Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucus. Just a week ago he was counted out then he pulled on his sweater vest:

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s sudden boost in the polls is more obvious on Twitter than in traditional national news polls. Could the spike in positive sentiment be because of the V-neck sweater vests that Santorum routinely wears while on the campaign trail? Stranger things have happened.

While other GOP candidates make public appearances in suits, the former Pennsylvania senator has been donning sleeveless sweaters. This has inspired some parody social accounts including a @FearRicksVest Twitter account, Facebook Page, Tumblr blog and YouTube music video.

On Monday, Santorum detailed the moment when his sweater vests caught fire online during an interview on Laura Ingraham’s radio show. He said the meme began after a speech he gave at a Mike Huckabee event in Iowa in mid-December: “If there was one event that really began the moment, it was that speech,” Santorum said. “So all the sudden the sweater vest was like, ‘Fear the vest.’”
