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.

Because it's an extravagantly stupid, ill informed tweet. It's so whole-heartedly wrong it becomes beautiful.

Which Australian president is she talking about? We have a president?

Meanwhile our PRIME MINISTER is female, atheist and generally operates in a more liberal political climate than anything Obama has suggested to date.

...read her tweet again, and tell me she's going to function in Australia. XD
