Poor Julia Gillard.

Fresh from her misogynist-bashing tirade against the formerly smug but still very sexist, Tony Abbott, that saw her become a viral internet sensation, Gillard has fallen back to Earth with a bump. Literally.

On a visit to the Gandhi Memorial in New Delhi, Gillard had a minor balance issue and ended up smooching grass, or, as the Aussies call it "stacking it".

She later blamed the incident on "the logistics" of wearing heels.
