So who is this uncouth woman now gracing the corridors of our Senate? It's Tasmania's Jacqui Lambie who only got 1,501 first-preference votes in last year's election. Thanks to Clive Palmer, we now have our first bogan Senator.
Within hours of arriving in Canberra, she called Tony Abbott a "psychopath" and said she wants his job one day.
Apparently she's been in the Army and her favourite weapon is a M60 machine gun and only joined PUP because she needed the money.
This week she showed her true character to the nation. As a ratio guest, Lambie said she is looking for a man and she has only two requirements - "They must have heaps of cash and they've got to have a package between their legs, let's be honest" she said.
In response to her bizarre statement, 22 year old Jamie rang up and wanted a date. "Do you have heaps of cash?" she asked and then "Are you well hung?" Jamie responded "like a donkey" and the radio studio erupted into hysterical laughter.
But the single mother of two insisted she was just "taking the mickey" out of her non-existent love life. "I won't be scripted, I'm sorry, I can't operate like that" she said. "I'm just a normal, average Australian, that's what I am and whether I've got Senator in front of my name or not, that's not going to change."
But one thing's for sure, everyone in the country knows who she is.
