Can You Knit and Be Prime Minister?

There was quite a bit of talk this week about Prime Minister Julia Gillard of Australia appearing in Australian Women's Weekly knitting a toy kangaroo as a baby gift for the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge. The thread in the Ravelry main boards ended up being locked.
A sample comment in the media:
News Limited columnist Andrew Bolt said Gillard was "giving encouragement to young female politicians by plying a hobby now synonymous with mad old aunts."
