Lesbian given worst job

The news that financially desperate Iceland is getting an openly lesbian prime minister reminds me of The Onion's Nov. 5 headline: "Black Man Given Nation's Worst Job."

Meanwhile, Icelanders say they want 66-year-old Johanna Sigurdardottir to take over because she appears to have one important quality:
"It's a question of trust, people believe that she actually cares about people," said Olafur Hardarson, a political scientist at the University of Iceland.
Wow. What a revolutionary concept. Congratulations Johanna, and good luck. You'll need it.
