There seems to have been a big brouhaha in the States about President Obama's birth certificate. He was pressured to produce it (which I think was actually pretty lame of him) and, of course, The Tea Party are all over it as some sort of conspiracy to eradicate the American way of life.
And I thought: I hope someone from the Tea Party wins the next election.
Not because I'm all over the 'Obama isn't even from around here; it's all a conspiracy' theme but because I really, really want to see what happens if they do get in AND get to push their agenda through.
I mean, call me cynical but isn't anyone else interested in what might happen if REAL, honest to God, whackjobs take over? I am. We don't have any real whackjobs over here, Tony Abbott notwithstanding, but I wouldn't be averse to some whackjob leading our Parliament anyway. Human beings are pretty resilient, we can overcome pretty much anything. I just wonder what would happen if an Armidinijad (spelling?) took over. Because, let's face it, the Tea Party are no different to him.
I'm fascinated, mainly because it's all outside for me. I'm not American, so I don't stand to gain or lose if they take over. Maybe the world will but ultimately, it won't affect me personally. So I say, bring it on.
I want to see what the worst that can happen is.
