Beware The Wrath Of A Woman Scorned

It wasn't enough to just kill off WorkChoices yesterday, Julia Gillard then passed a motion that parliament should celebrate its demise, causing a major kerfuffle on the floor. Annabel Crabb explains the psychology:
La Gillardine is a member of the ALP's Left faction, and therefore has never had the numbers on anything, ever, until now.

This may help to explain why power has gone to her head a little this week, and why - having knocked the Opposition to the mat - she cannot stop herself from sinking the boot repeatedly into its inert form.
Even coalition supporters were disgusted by their heroes' meek capitulation.

Of interest: apparently Lord Clowner was actually sitting in parliament yesterday.
