Fools and the Internet, a dangerous combination
Queensland's Liberal-National Party (LNP) has expelled a young member who called US president Barack Obama a "monkey" on Twitter.
Griffith University medical student Nick Sowden stirred up a storm of controversy for his Twitter comments during Kerry O'Brien's exclusive interview with the US president.
The 22-year-old says he is not a racist and his comments were supposed to be ironic and have been taken out of context.
At least young Sowden can be thankful that, unlike other intemperate young bucks, he won't end up in court.
