He's probably right. But I can't help being a fan of Ms Gillard too. She's everything K R Puff'n'Fluff isn't and more.
I can hardly criticise Jones for so rashly losing his heart to a woman from Labor’s Left who once championed an ideology that should freeze the very blood in his veins.
I mean, guess which conservative wrote this of Gillard two years ago: “I have nursed a secret passion for Julia Gillard ... She has the mouth of Paul Keating, but the eyes of Megan Gale, and the one just enhances the other.”
Yes, sorry about that. I’ll mop it up.
But Jones and I aren’t alone among conservatives falling for a politician whose choice of books now suggests she’s readying to take over from the increasingly friendless Kevin Rudd.
Here, for instance, is the Sydney Morning Herald’s Miranda Devine: “(Gillard) spoke so much sense in her speech, and answered questions with such verve and wit, that reporters leaving the Press Club could do little more than shake their heads in admiration.”
