I guess nobody told her the Australian PM is a woman and an atheist

It must be quite a shock for Julia Gillard to find that President Barack Obama's re-election somehow transformed her into Australia's male, Christian president who "actually supports what he says".

Confused? So was Kristen Neel, a teenager from Georgia, who gained Twitter infamy in Australia in a matter of hours on Wednesday evening.

After news President Obama won four more years, the 18-year-old tweeted: "I'm moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says."

She has since deleted her Twitter account, but search tool Topsy showed she was retweeted over 1500 times.

Before she went offline, Ms Neel tried to explain.

"I was referring to the prevous (sic) office that actually had a moral position," she wrote.

Australian political and media observers didn't take long to pounce, sending out numerous tweets.

I knooowww. We've got like, universal health care, gun control, subsidised university, our taxes are hiiiiigh as! I had some old American lady complain to me about Obama being elected again today, while I dispensed medication covered by the government for her (concession price too!). The irony.

Actually, I was doing some research the other day on taxes and compared to the rest of the OECD nations we pay pretty low taxes, the US of course is lower, but we are in the top 10.

This really shocked me as I thought that we pay a lot ( just by looking at the difference between my gross and net pay, let alone adding GST on top).
