The World’s First Gay Head of State…

is in Iceland! pg-2-iceland_121476t
The new Prime Minister is a lesbian named Johanna Sigurdardottir. Granted, Iceland only has a population of 300,000 (i.e., 1/10 the number of people who live in Oklahoma). And yes, Ms. Sigurdardottir will only be in office til May, and is unlikely to hold power after that point. But still – pretty neat! Not to mention that it’s also Iceland’s first female PM. But do you know what the strangest part is to me? She used to be a flight attendant. Of course there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s a pretty unlikely path to becoming the leader of a country!

    I linked to your article on my blog. I’m very proud of the title I used called “You better bjork, girl!” There are just so many great Iceland jokes.

    I’m rather sorry for her. Iceland is in worse shape financially than the US. But I wish her luck. Gay or straight, she has a hard row to walk.

    I believe that would be “row to hoe” or “road to walk”
    I’m old…patience please.
