‘Two and a Half Men’ Actress Slams Bachmann, Palin

Holland Taylor is best known for playing a character on the hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men.”

The Hollywood actress is currently starring in a one-woman play at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., where she portrays former Texas Democrat Governor Ann Richards.

Taylor recently reflected the attitudes of the entertainment industry’s dominant social set when the subject of certain Republican women came up in an interview with Politico.

When asked what Richards would say about prominent GOP women such as presidential candidate and current Minnesota  Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Taylor responded, “I think she would laugh her [expletive] off.”

She added, “I see Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin and think it is the end of the world if they can actually be taken seriously as presidential candidates.”

Taylor referred to the Republican women as “mom candidates,” saying that they “have surged forward are not politicians and not experienced and don’t know what they’re talking about for the most part.”

She opined that Richards would have been “pretty sure they [Bachmann and Palin] wouldn’t get elected so they would just be good amusement value.”

Conversely, the actress sees Richards as a trailblazer for women in the political field, having served six years as a county commissioner and eight years as a state treasurer.

“That’s when she ran for governor, not president,” Taylor explained.

Taylor suggested that Richards “paved the way for women to be taken seriously as viable candidates.”
