The New PM

So, yes, we have a female Prime Minister now. Our first female Prime Minister, which is cool, but would certainly be cooler if she was different to all the other political beasts out there. Still, it's good to see on a number of levels.

However, like Lynda Hawryluk, I await this:

Every time PM Julia Gillard does something wrong, it will be because she's a woman and too emotional or irrational, and the first putdown when she does something wrong it will be because she doesn't have any kids so what could she know about running a country.

And anytime she does something right, it will be because she's a woman and that's about it.
