When the folks in Australia elected this incompetent hack we didn’t hear her whining about sexism. It was only when her own party dumped that it was sexist or something. All of this drove her to a “murderous rage,” to use her own words.
Australia’s first woman prime minister, who was dumped by her party ahead of September’s election loss, revealed on Monday she was surprised by the level of aggressive sexism directed at her during three years in power.
Julia Gillard made the comments in her first interview since she was deposed in a ballot of her center-left Labor Party colleagues in June by a vote of 57 to 45 as public opinion polls pointed to the administration heading for a catastrophic election defeat.
She was replaced by Kevin Rudd, a prime minister she had deposed in a similar leadership showdown three years earlier in the face of poor opinion polling. Rudd led his party to a crushing election defeat on Sept. 7, causing some observers to ask whether the leadership change had served any purpose.
Gillard, who turned 52 Sunday, told a sold-out audience of 2,600 people in the Sydney Opera House in an interview televised nationally that she reacted with “murderous rage” to the sexist attacks on her in social media and elsewhere.
Poor thing. Perhaps she ought to grow up and learn to handle criticism. Maybe work in some anger management classes as well now that she’s got some free time on here hands.
