Best Thing You’ll See All Day: Australia’s Female Prime Minister Rips Misogynist a New One in Epic Speech on Sexism – Jezebel.com:

She basically ripped him a new asshole.

I’m still not pleased with her political performance overall, mind – gay rights… chaplains… But, still. Tides of change in Australia? #DestroyTheJoint
