Iceland to Name First Lesbian Prime Minister

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

From Yahoo News:

Iceland’s next leader will be an openly gay former flight attendant who parlayed her experience as a union organizer into a decades-long political career. Both parties forming Iceland’s new coalition government support the appointment of Johanna Sigurdardottir, the island nation’s 66-year-old social affairs minister, as Iceland’s interim prime minister.

    The tone of the comments at YAHOO on this were encouraging at first. But when they morphed into the usual slugfest that had nothing to do with compitency I stopped reading them. Good luck to her. We all need some luck to go with our hard work. For the moral bigots (I mean moral dictators), SHAME ON YOU! Get over it and get a life!

    As if the world’s greatest salmon fishing were not reason enough for me to want to visit Iceland (especially at current prices!), the prospect of a union organizer becoming PM makes me want to move there!
