Sandra Bernhard on Sarah Palin

AC: Why do you think people are so into her?

SB: People relate to her! People want to be famous. They want to be on Real Housewives of New York and Kate Gosselin and Dancing With the Stars. They think this is the American dream. It’s not about talent; it’s not about passion. It’s not even about wanting to be a good leader. It’s just simply being acknowledged.

SB: Oh honey, if she has a bad day, that Bumpit’s back in there.

AC: Do you think it’s gauged to how well her day’s going?

SB: [Laughs.] It’s a barometer. For sure.
