Cher: Sarah Palin is a ‘Dumb Woman,’ Jan Brewer Shouldn’t Even Handle ‘A Remote Control’

Cher: Sarah Palin is a ‘Dumb Woman,’ Jan Brewer Shouldn’t Even Handle ‘A Remote Control’ By Alana Goodman Created 11/02/2010 - 16:18

By Alana Goodman | November 02, 2010 | 16:18

In the new issue of Vanity Fair, legendary singer Cher dished about her feelings on Sarah Palin and Arizona governor Jan Brewer. And – surprise! – she’s not a fan of either.

“I got so obsessed with [C-SPAN] that it was kind of interfering with my life,” Cher told the magazine. “Sarah Palin came on, and I thought, Oh, f---, this is the end. Because a dumb woman is a dumb woman.”

The “I Got Your Babe” singer was even harsher on Brewer, who spearheaded the recent immigration crackdown in Arizona.

“She was worse than Sarah Palin, if that is possible,” said Cher. “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.”

Cher has been an outspoken critic of the conservative movement in the past. In 2008, she called President Bush “the Big Divider” and said the only way she would show her face at a Sarah Palin rally would be “in my nightmares.”

In the upcoming Vanity Fair interview, which will hit newsstands on Thursday, Cher also gabbed about taxes and American-made products.

“I would be willing to pay a lot more taxes, because I make a lot more money, but I don’t want to give them more to just f--- things up more,” said the singer. “It really should fall on people like me to get together and do things to help the people in this country. If you’re not worrying about how to put food on your table, you [should be] worrying about why other people don’t have food on their table.”

“I remember a great America where we made everything. There was a time when the only thing you got from Japan was a really bad cheap transistor radio that some aunt gave you for Christmas.”

Hearing musicians talk about politics is only slightly less irritating than listening to politicians play music. Unless that music is Cher, of course. Then it’s REALLY annoying!!!

Cher has never exactly been the sharpest knife in the drawer. Her opinion on the intelligence of someone else hardly impresses me.

Well, she apparently has gone beyond shame: her film opening soon is called ‘Burlesque’.

You are free to cringe and do your best Ron White at this time. A stiff bourbon would help.

I agree. Given some of the choices Cher has made I’m surprised she would have the gall to criticize anyone. For all her talk about helping other people in need, she didn’t mention the “Cher Charity Foundation”, or anything else she is doing, for that matter. I guess talk is cheap.

Cher is the dumb woman. If only she knew how ridiculous she looks at 60 trying to look like a 20 year old. No intelligent, stable woman would raise a he/she like chastity.

She’s an amazing phoney. When she was with Sonny in the ‘60s, she was a staunch Republican. As a reader of “Tiger Beat” I know this.

Now that Sonny is long dead, the woman who thought Mount Rushmore was a natural phenomenon (according to Sonny!) is a wild-eyed lib!

Cher: take a look at your own sad family and forget politics!

When Cher dies, they won’t have to waste time burying her. Just stick her corpse over a sewer drain and turn on a heat lamp.

You can understand why Cher would dislike real women. Cher has had more body work that a 1997 Dodge in a family with four teen drivers.

Right, all us normal folk can relate to Cher. Where’s my black leather and my multiple millions of dollars? I also forgot which side of the world I’m heading to next, I’m sure I own an estate there either way.

What's stopping her? Write a check to the IRS, they'll cash it.

Ah, but Cher, you are free to give vast amounts of your wealth away to anyone you want, to put food on their table. Are you doing this? Or are you just talking? Until you actually do this I am free to assume that you are just yakking, like most of the celebs of the world, just to keep yourself in front of the public. Oh, and BTW you sound vacuous and stupid. And crude.

Cher..yup...that's who I turn to regularly for all the advice I need on politics and life in the drug lane.

In October 2008 she mounted a big campaign for obama, calling radio stations and talk shows giving him a plug.

Way to go Cher, go ahead and dixiechick what's left of your career...

Also from the Vanity Fair(y) article:

“-Cher has no problem talking about her child, Chaz Bono, except when it comes to using the right wording.

“She's a very smart girl—boy!,” she says in the new issue of Vanity Fair. “This is where I get into trouble. I still don't remember to call her ‘him.-”

Cher is living proof that cheap drugs ARE a problem later in life.
