“I got so obsessed with [C-SPAN] that it was kind of interfering with my life. Sarah Palin came on, and I thought, Oh, fuck, this is the end. Because a dumb woman is a dumb woman.” On the subject of Arizona governor Jan Brewer, Cher says, “She was worse than Sarah Palin, if that is possible. This woman was like a deer in headlights. She’s got a handle on the services of the state, and I would not let her handle the remote control.”
There are many threatening Republicans. Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Scott Brown, and Rand Paul. You'd expect, as conservative male Republicans, they would be the focus of liberal women's ire. Yet it is conservative women, including non-office holder, Sarah Palin, that earn a special contempt. It is striking. If Cher is watching CSPAN, she can see Chris Christie eviscerate teachers complaining about public education budget cuts. Yet, nothing. Only Sarah Palin.
It is remarkable, how Liberal women single out, often non-important female conservatives, for special hatred, completely ignoring conservative male Republican office-holders. It really is.
