1000 words

Tom Scott from the DomPost (don't know how long the link will work).

Very interesting seeing the parlour psychoanalysis and sexualisation of women in politics going on. So, Tariana Turia isn't only mad, bad and dangerous to know she's also a bit of an ideological slut?

As so often happens in political discourse, I think the petty abuse says more about the people doing the talking than the object of their derision.

The phrase "politics makes for strange bedfellows" is probably a cliche, and one Scott and other cartoonists have got a lot of mileage from over the years.
I wouldn't accuse Tariana of most of what is on your list (though "dangerous to know" could fit). Rather I would say she is exceedingly consistent about advancing her own ideologies (some of which I consider deeply flawed). Maorist would fit.
