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.

It got retweeted by a lot of people. And was mind-numbingly stupid. Plus people are in a schadenfreude mood. Though I still prefer pointing and laughing at Karl Rove whose ROI was worse than I dreamed of. One candidate out of the ten he supported won. One. If that doesn't make you point & laugh, nothing will.

I hadn't seen that number, and it filled me with warm fuzzy joy.

I'm still laughing over his epic meltdown on Faux News Tuesday night.
