LASSO OF TRUTH: Wonder Woman Is Anti-Palin


THE HILL:  Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman on television in the 1970s, slammed Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as the “anti-Wonder Woman.” Carter made her remarks in response to a question from Philadelphia Magazine about comparisons between Wonder Woman and Gov. Palin (Alaska), the GOP’s first veep nominee. “She’s judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they’ve got to live their lives,” Carter added. “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?” Carter said that it was “anti-American” to try to force religious views on others. “I like John McCain,” Carter said. “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.” MORE

PHILLY MAG: From seemingly out of nowhere, Lynda Carter, known best for her ’70s role as Wonder Woman, turned up this week in Atlantic City to begin a three-week concert run at Harrah’s. I caught up with her this morning to discuss nude scenes,  boozing, this so-called “Wonder Woman” Sarah Palin, and, oh yeah, music. MORE
