ONTD Political

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.

My daughter pointed out the health care situation in Lichtenstein and the classmate said something along the lines that it was ok there since it had been around so long.

I'm guessing that it is some kind of high school freshman hipster strangeness. Where I live we are closer to Canada than any other state, so there is no romance there. Everyone knows where the UK is, although many still call it England when they mean the modern country. If you want to look educated (or more like a jerk), go for something no one ever heard of. It has nothing to do with knowing anything about politics.
