Loser leaves town

Apparently Australian politics is run by Vince McMahon:

Australia’s first female prime minister, Julia Gillard, has been sacked by her party just months before the next election and replaced by the man she ousted three years ago.

Gillard laid down the challenge to [Kevin] Rudd when she called on Wednesday for a do-or-die ballot, on the condition that the loser retire from parliament to end the debilitating Labor leadership war.

Reports suggest that Gillard also had all of her hair forcefully shaved off. She’s expected to return to politics under a new name and wearing a mask early next week.
