Michele Bachmann has fallen victim to bearing the brunt of numerous jokes on Twitter about her withdrawal from the GOP race.

Bachmann, a third-term Minnesota congresswoman and the founder of the Tea Party caucus in the House, announced Wednesday that she was suspending her campaign for president.

The representative's decision came after her disappointing results in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses.

Twitter users have taken to the social media site to voice their opinions and criticisms of the Republican by posting jokes and jibes revolving around Bachmann's announcement.

"I bet Michele Bachmann suspended her campaign because she's not qualified to be president of the United States or a 6th grade class," Twitter user Jenny wrote on Wednesday.

Alex P wrote, "One less crazy to worry about," on Bachmann's departure from the race.

Additionally, many people in the entertainment industry took to Twitter expressing their reaction to Bachmann's announcement.

Comedian Andy Borowitz contributed a post on his Twitter account writing: "Bachmann apparently is withdrawing from the race to spend more time applying gigantic fake eyelashes."

Borowitz later added to his account, "Remember, Michele Bachmann doesn't know the meaning of the word surrender. Also: the words science, math, apple, cat."

Brian Lynch, a screenwriter, posted, "Michele Bachmann may be dropping out, but her eyes will never, ever leave you."

"NEWS: Michele Bachmann dissembled by staffers, returned to Radio Shack for partial store credit," posted Michael King, a cartoonist who formerly worked at The Onion.

National Post sports writer Bruce Arthur wrote to his Twitter followers: "On the plus side, the time has never been better for a zany Michele Bachmann-Herman Cain buddy comedy."

"Michele Bachmann quits presidential race. Too bad. She was so entertaining," tweeted Stephanie Sarkis, blogger for The Huffington Post.

The congresswoman announcing the end of her campaign said, "Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside."

She added that she had "no regrets" about her candidacy. "We never compromised our principles," explained the congresswoman, who noted that she "looks forward to the next chapter in God's plan."
