Iceland to name openly gay prime minister

REYKJAVIK, Iceland, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- An Icelandic political party says it will name an openly gay government minister to the post of interim primeminister.

The country's Social Democratic Alliance Party has picked Johanna Sigurdardottir, 66, to be prime minister in the wake of this week's collapse of Iceland's ruling conservative coalition, The Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

Now won't that irk those oh-so righteous fundamentalist Christians who hide out in the dark alleys of the GOP?  They've so much to do to 'fix' this nation now that the 'baby-killers' are in office, and now this!  Those bibles will be a-thump'n day and night all across bigoted America!
