Russell Brand Says Sarah Palin Is Popular Because 'People Want To F*ck Her'

| by Michael Allen

Comedian Russell Brand was speaking to the Television Critics Association on Saturday about his upcoming talk show 'Brand X,' when he said that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has risen to the top only because “people want to f*ck her. That’s why they tolerate the other stuff.”

Brand isn't the first person to comment on Palin's looks.

Earlier this year, former Senator Arlen Specter wrote in detail, in his new book, of sitting next to Palin on a campaign bus: “[S]he radiated sensuality. Her skirt rode above her knees, not exactly short, but close.”

HBO’s Bill Maher once famously called her a “bimbo” as well as the “c” word.
