With 368 votes counted, Annalise Braakensiek leads by 15 over Barry Humphries and 33 over Tony. Itís looking good for Annalise, as the Sydney Morning Herald reports:

John Howard is working on a shortlist of candidates for governor-general that includes at least one woman, Government sources said last night.

I vote for Tony. It's a good name.

Barry Humphries? Isn't he that guy who calls himself "Dame Edna?" Please tell me this post is a joke (or that I'm hallucinating).
