Australia's new leader is a realist
Why can't we elect somebody who believes in reality?


When Julia Gillard became Australia's first female prime minister last week she quickly earned
international headlines and received a congratulatory call from President Obama for her accomplishment.

Now it turns out she's broken another barrier that, for American voters at least,
would be far more daunting than her gender: She doesn't believe in God.

"No, I don't," she told an interviewer at Australia's national radio, ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corp.)
who asked her point blank if she believed in God. "I'm not a religious person."

"I was brought up in the Baptist Church, but during my adult life I've found a different path.
I'm of course a great respecter of religious beliefs, but they're not my beliefs.

Why can't we have a logical, scientific president?
In America, you can't get elected unless you proclaim yourself to be religiously insane.

I'd rather vote for a candidate who believed in UFOs or believed Elvis was alive than one
who believed the idiotic notion that some Invisible Cloud Being spends his time watching us.


A shot of Chinaco for Julia Gillard
and a shot for the people of Australia for electing her.

You guys traded in your nutbag Bush bastard for a scientist?

Damn, I'm jealous.
