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.
