It is repulsive to find that not only is Julia Gillard arguing that only a woman as Prime Minister can protect that rights of women but that there are actually women who find that a persuasive argument. On my side of the political divide, there have been extremely competent women who have risen to very high levels and have been supported by men and to be very particular, have been supported by me.
Let me start with Sarah Palin about whom I wrote about here. That she would make a better president than Obama is beyond question to me. That she would make a better president than just about anyone else in the US, male or female, is equally beyond question to me. She won’t be president, but the idea that I or anyone else might make our political decisions based on gender is a typical example of lying on the left.
My other example is Margaret Thatcher about whom I wrote about here. The title of the post was, “The Greatest Woman of the Twentieth Century”. That she most definitely was and on our side of the political divide who would doubt it?
Gillard is a small woman, with constricted ideas and no vision. She is filled with venom and hatreds. She is standard issue socialist which I associate with limited intelligence and a failure to grow up.
