Acting Prime Minister Mark Vaile has rebutted Deputy Opposition Leader Julia Gillard’s claims that it is unlikely a mother would reach the office of prime minister.

ABC News.

Well, when you’re acting PM and Little Johnny Howler is off on another tax-payer funded jaunt, naturally you’ll lunge at any opportunity to score a point. However weak and tainted that point might be.

In truth, when you get right down to it, Vaile is right. There is currently a mother in the role of PM. The instincts are void, but he’s a mother none the less.
