Back to Iraq? Twitter Ignites Over Perry’s Suggestion

Toni Sandys/The Washington Post(MANCHESTER, N.H.) -- Rick Perry‘s attention-grabbing comment that troops should be sent back to Iraq is getting traction on Twitter.

According to our social media-watching friends at BlueFin Labs, Perry’s comment in tonight’s debate brought about 5,800 messages on Twitter.

That number is just short of the 5,900 prompted by the exchange between Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich over Gingrich’s lack of military service.
