On the ABC's 7:30 report, in between protesting her unfair treatment
by the media, by the ALP and by the tooth fairy, her excuse for her
anti-ALP 1998 election outburst: 'I was very menopausal'.
Apparently she wanted to be treated equally to men - but given that extra bit
of special understanding because she was menopausal. Just as well we have
a policy of affirmative action isn't it?
She also laments that she has had no job offers. What a victim! She has
the superannuation from ten years as a federal MP, but this is not enough to
satisfy her monetary greed. She wants to do something useful, but is incapable
of finding something else to do herself - either forming a lobby group or
perhaps going into business. She expects someone else to ring her and and offer
to give her money.
She also broke up with her husband. That could explain the ad I saw in the
SINGLE WHITE FEMALE. Unemployed, but financially secure
(ex-federal-MP). High maintenance (expects affirmative action). Can usually
control her temper between menopausal outbursts. Strong political beliefs, but
willing to change alliances depending on partner's leanings. Flabby arms, lacks
exercise. Seeks Sensitive New Age Guy who likes long conversations, watching
the ABC and wearing feather boas.
