For this week’s Genius Idea Friday, we have Australian Senator Pauline Hanson of the One Nation (wait, wasn’t Van Jones big on “One Nation” stuff?) Party, whom decided to wear a burqa into chambers to help cement her campaign to have the garment banned nationally.
Basically, she entered the Parliament House in Canberra and wore the burqa for a whole 10 minutes before disrobing and saying, “I’m quite happy to remove this, because this is not what should belong in this Parliament.”
Can we give Senator Hanson a nice slow clap for her stunt? After all, there is nothing more genius or endearing than a political stunt.
Remember back when Rep. Bobby Rush wore a hoodie on the House floor in the United States and how great that was?
No? Well, okay then.
