Kirsten Powers On Bill Maher: His Comments On Bachmann, Palin Are Degrading To ‘All Women’

Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers told Fox’s Greta Van Susteren comic Bill Maher‘s jokes about Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin represent an attack on “all women.” Maher, who has made no bones about his comedic high hopes for a Bachmann presidential campaign. On his HBO show Friday, Maher described the GOP field of potential presidential candidates as a Gilligan’s Island in the making, with Palin and Bachmann as “two bimbos,” Mitt Romney as “the millionaire” and Newt Gingrich as “the professor.”

“It degrades all women,” said Powers. “When you do this, you can choose these two women, but it degrades all women…if they’re not being called bimbos, they’re being called these scheming climbers…it’s not a minor thing.”
