Lynda Carter, Political Commentator (Or, More Than A Woman)

I - like most liberal Americans scared shitless of the Sarah-Palinpalooza - have been scouring news sources for any and all information and critiques of the frighteningly fundamentalist Governor.

After trudging through much commentary, the following quote from an interview in Philadelphia Magazine - found on Salon.com - made me smile.

When in doubt, America should simply turn to Lynda Carter for guidance.

Here's what she had to say about the gay-hating, evolution-denying, lipstick-wearing, anti-choice, sex-education-mishandling, all-around-fascist Hockey Mom and how some highly misguided conservatives have been comparing Palin to Wonder Woman.

"Don't get me started. She's the anti-Wonder Woman. She's judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they've got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness … that's just not what Wonder Woman is about. Hillary Clinton is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin. She did it all, didn't she?

"No one has the right to dictate, particularly in this country, to force your own personal views upon the populace -- religious views. I think that is suppressive, oppressive, and anti-American. We are the loyal opposition. That's the whole point of this country: freedom of speech, personal rights, personal freedom. Nor would Wonder Woman be the person to tell people how to live their lives. Worry about your own life! Worry about your own family! Don't be telling me what I want to do with mine."

Now all we need is for Ms. Carter to swoop in and kick a certain Governor's ass, drop her in any worthy federal prison, and save a shirtless Steve Trevor from harm.

I loved this article. Read it a couple days ago and totally laughed out loud.

It sucks to be slammed by Wonder Woman.
