Real Wonder Woman Sounds off on Sarah Palin

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Editorial,

Lynda Carter

For years (four, to be precise), Lynda Carter wowed fans in her skimpy flag-inspired costume and deadly accessories. She personified truth, justice and beauty with her raven locks and rock-hard abs. She was Wonder Woman, and for many men who remember her heyday she still is a heroine.

But when asked her feelings about , whom the media refers to as a wonder woman, the “real” Wonder Woman didn’t even try to act demure. What did Lynda Carter have to say about the self-styled hockey mom, bulldog-in-lipstick who is John McCain’s running mate?

Be advised, her show may have been child-friendly, but that doesn’t mean Lynda Carter’s political comments are.

Philadelphia Magazine

During a routine interview in Philadelphia Magazine, Carter was asked this as a last question: “I’m sure you’ve seen all the comparisons in the media and among Republicans of Sarah Palin to Wonder Woman. How do you feel about that?”

Sarah Palin

“She’s the anti-Wonder Woman,” Carter said of Palin. “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. is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin.”

And apparently, Wonder Woman doesn’t mince words. Carter expounded on her anti-Palin sentiments: “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.” Carter even seemed to offer some advice to Palin: “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.”

That’s right, Palin, and if I were you I would lay low - Wonder Woman’s bracelets alone can sever limbs.

“I like ,” Carter admitted. “But this woman - it’s anathema to me what she stands for. I think American 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.”

Or on the money? Separation of church and state indeed - when has this ever been achieved in America?

“What I don’t understand, honestly, is how anyone can even begin to say they know the mind of God.” Or that there even is one? “I know what God is in my life,” Carter continued.

Yeah, and she doesn’t need Sarah Palin - or apparently anyone else - to tell her more about the Supreme Deity, or give Him a place in the American government. When her claws aren’t sheathed, I get the feeling that Lynda Carter might’ve made an excellent Catwoman, too.

So far, John McCain’s camp has annoyed several musicians by playing their tunes without paying for the right to do so. You can now add at least one ticked-off superhero to McCain’s growing list of enemies.

anarchy is against the government because of reasons like corruption, cofusion and pissing off other coutries its not a political party, if anything its the opposite of one

yeah i think that its possible hilary could be a better president than bush i could never understand, almost everyone i know disliked bush before they voted who the hell voted for him?!?!?!?!

i know, thats what i meant by against the government i meant against the idea of one in general

i am neither either way whoever wins they lie to get there so really dont make no difference to me. jsut as long as bush is outta there thats all i care about.

no, anarchy is not an official party if theres anarchy somewhere it just means theres no government

Lol. Not against the government. It's FOR the lack of government. I don't believe that confusion and pissing off other countries is included with it though. And I voted for other so that should count. I wonder if anyone will go for feudal hierarchy... certainly not me XD

"I rarely hear about this party in the US." ur kinda missing what im trying to say.... they arent a party, an anarchist country is like a more official way of saying they dont have a government

[quote author="sharkhead7854" date="1212606073"]no, anarchy is not an official party if theres anarchy somewhere it just means theres no government[/quote] Do you know any specific countries that contain an anarchy? I rarely hear about this party in the US.

Anarchy all the way. With the democratic (government type, not the party) polity we have right now, I think anarchy is the best. <_< At least there's no such thing as corruption.

What goals do they have? Are they more like Republicans or Democrats?
