Why do most cartoonists depict Julia Gillard in a skirt? I have never seen her in anything but pants.

The mass media should accept much of the blame for the carefully contrived language and appearance of senior politicians. Instead of truly reporting the substance of statements by political leaders the media will latch onto a few ill-chosen words and report them out of context - and give inordinate attention to appearance in the case of a female leader. And then have the gall to criticise them for not being relaxed and normal. The media should look at themselves in the mirror.

If the journalists stopped twittering their stupid and sometimes nasty in-house gossip and spent their energies on serious journalism we'd all benefit.

Bob Corcoran is right, they pounce from a great height at every utterance and then write about the fact that they are scripted or wooden etc., What the journalist write is 99% rubbish and propaganda.

Pauline, the PM does wear a skirt for most formal occasions.

I agree with Pauline Power. Instead of analysis we get spin. Cliches suc as 'the Real Julia' et al, does not become such and otherwise talented cartoonist as Fiona Katauskas.
