Icelandic politician may become world's first lesbian Prime Minister.
It's all pretty textbook stuff:
It is reported that Social Affairs Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir will be named as interim Prime Minister.
If chosen Ms Sigurdardottir, 66, will become the first openly gay or lesbian person to become a head of government.
She has been an MP since 1978 and was recently voted the most popular politician in Iceland.
Blah, blah, blah:
Ms Gisladottir, 54, the country's foreign minister, has been critical of the Prime Minister's response to the financial crisis.
A former Mayor of Reykjavík, she has led her party since 2005.
Yadda yadda yadda. But then there's this:
She had brain surgery last week.
Tip of the wig to Gweeds.
