Lynda Carter disapproves of Sarah Palin/Wonder Woman comparisons

SOURCE: Lynda Carter on Sarah Palin - "She’s the anti-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."

And that's why she's still Wonder Woman to us all 30 years later...


  1. Knockout was not hairy by any stretch of the imagination.

  2. I'm not crazy about a Hilary/Wonder Woman metaphor either. But compared to Sarah "Bobby's Mom" Palin...
