Who Said It: New Australian Senator Or US Tea Party Republican?

Because they're clearly as crazy as each other.

  1. 1. "(The Sandy Hook massacre) should be a wakeup call to those who want to prevent them from occurring again. Arming the good guys is how you prevent the bad guys from causing harm."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's NSW Senator David Leyonhjelm!

    The Liberal Democrat was elected overwhelmingly because he was placed no.1 on the NSW Senate ballot. He benefitted from voters mistakenly thinking they were voting for the Liberal Party. Classic.

  2. 2. "I'm not a scientist... I can tell you what recorded history says... I can tell you what the Bible says... Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Florida Republican Marco Rubio!

    The Hispanic icon is not sure about the science of the world. He preaches the teaching of theories... all the theories.

  3. 3. "There may be more 'wacko birds' in the Senate than is suspected.”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Texas Republican Ted Cruz!

    The Tea Party darling thinks there's a few screws loose in the Senate chamber. He's probably right.

  4. 4. "‘I love the saying, ‘I may often be wrong, but I’m never uncertain’.”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Queensland LNP Senator Barry O'Sullivan

    The cock-sure country boy replaces fellow straight-talking fella Barnaby Joyce in the Australian Senate.

  5. 5. "If you've ever spent much time in the bush, you go out there and you discover there is poo everywhere.”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Victorian Motoring Senator Ricky Muir!

    The founder and leader of the Motoring Enthusiast Party has some very solid views on kangaroo poo.

  6. 6. "I am concerned Catholic hospitals could be forced to recommend abortions … this is politics invading freedom of religion.”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Western Australian Labor Senator Joe Bullock!

    Despite hailing from Australia's party of the 'Left', Mr Bullock holds some strong views on keeping political hands off Catholic insititutions.

  7. 7. "The fundamental reason why Medicare is failing is why the Soviet Union failed -- socialism doesn't work."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Kentucky Republican Rand Paul!

    The almost-certain 2016 Presidential candidate campaigning against socialism.

  8. 8. "Maybe it is time we placed national service back on the agenda but reconfigured to suit today’s conditions … It’s time to teach [our youth] some respect, loyalty and honor."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Tasmanian PUP Senator Jacqui Lambie!

    The former soldier is calling for young people to get kicked off welfare and into uniform!

  9. 9. "And when they say, ‘I want my lawyer,’ you tell them, ‘Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer.’”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's South Carolina Republican Lindsay Graham!

    I love the idea of Lindsay Graham pointing at an alleged terrorist and yelling, "SHUT UP! You don't get a lawyer!"
