I'm Not Good At Math...

...but apparently I'm better at it than Australian politician Pauline Hanson.  Hanson was someone I would have assumed was gone from the Australian political scene, but it seems she's back in the news after Australia's recent election.  Her party got enough votes to secure a seat in the Australian Senate for Hanson, who had some brief popularity back in the '90s.  Like many anti-immigrant types she's latched on to Muslims as the target du jour, claiming that Australia is in danger of being "swamped" by Muslims.  Australia's Muslim population is about 2 percent of the total population.  Yep, they're going to be introducing Sharia Law any day now with that many Muslims.

Hopefully no one will let Hanson do their finances, because with math skills like that she'd probably really screw things up.
