When this first occurred, nearly all of the headlines on the news sites just used the word "Senator", without indicating that the said person was Australian, and I automatically figured it had to be a GOP Senator because, well, why wouldn't it be?
And please, people. If you are going to do things like this, don't waste perfectly good food doing it. Take your eggs and still-fresh vegetables and donate them to a food bank for the homeless. Then, take a pair of vinyl surgical gloves, find a nice, big, heaping pile of fresh doggy doo-doo, and use that instead. It is more degrading to the person it Is used against, it allows you to make a contribution to those more unfortunate than you are by donating said eggs and veggies, and it's biodegradable to boot!
Not that I would ever condone doing such things to an execrable politician. Heaven forbid!
