Australian P.M. on the Menu

Julia Gillard compared to quail at opposition fundraising dinner.

What’s for dinner? Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, apparently. A Liberal Party dinner offered “Julia Gillard Kentucky fried quail with small breasts, huge thighs, and a big red box,” at a fundraiser, shocking many—including Gillard. Former prime minister Kevin Rudd (who was also mocked on the menu as “Rudd’s a Goose Foie Gras) described the incident as a “snide, dirty, and sexist trick.” And Liberal Party leader Tonny Abbott was quick to call the menu “tawdry.” At least she is no longer being attacked by sandwiches.
