Lynda Carter on the topic of Sarah Palin...

In a recent interview in Philadelphia Magazine, writer Victor Fiorillo asked TV's sensational WONDER WOMAN (and fabulous cabaret performer) Lynda Carter what she thought about the Republicans and certain media outlets comparing wretched VP nominee Sarah Palin to Wonder Woman.

This is Lynda's incredible response:

"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.
I like John McCain. But this woman — it's anathema to me what she stands for. I think America should be very afraid. Very afraid. Separation of church and state is the one thing the creators of the Constitution did agree on — that it wasn’t to be a religious government. People should feel free to speak their minds about religion but not dictate it or put it into law.

What I don’t understand, honestly, is how anyone can even begin to say they know the mind of God. Who do they think they are? I think that’s ridiculous. I know what God is in my life. Now I am sure that she’s not all just that. But it’s enough to me. It’s enough for me to have a visceral reaction. And it makes me mad."

Wow. It's about time someone said it. I love Lynda Carter more than ever.

I swear, it pisses me off as Palin is just a planted distraction to keep America focused on her and not the real issues at hand. It's so fuckin' frustrating!!!

Whoah whoah, she likes McCain? That invalidates almost everything she said preceding her response on Palin.

Like alot of people, Lynda probably "likes" McCain because of his experience and his (now mostly forgotten) history as a "moderate". I think when it comes down to it, her fear of Palin has made her switch teams.

the thought of Palin as president has freaked out a lot of moderate Republicans. even Andrew Sullivan is now an Obama supporter.
