| by Michael Allen

Appearing on 'The O'Reilly Factor,' GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney claimed that he had worn a “garbage bag,” when referring to rain ponchos that NASCAR fans sometimes wear in bad weather (video below).

Romney said: “Look, I’ve worn a garbage bag for rain gear myself. We’re out there in the rain. The rain was getting us soaked. I didn’t have a raincoat myself. I would have liked one of those.”

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

As most NASCAR fans know, the emergency rain ponchos are not "garbage bags." They are plastic coverings that usually sell for less than $10.
