Women We Love (Only One is Real)

What is it about the best female impersonators that delights us girls? Is it the whimsical mom/aunt/sister we wished we had ? Are we hiding our own Auntie Mame-ness in the closet? For whatever reason, these ladies who speak their minds are a joy:

Dame Edna
Milton Berle... or is it my Aunt Jean?
Tony Curtis (Josephine) and Jack Lemmon (Geraldine) in "Some Like it Hot"
Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie"
Mike Meyers as Linda Richman on Saturday Night Live (looking verklempt) 
Robin Williams in "Mrs. Doubtfire"
Virginia Graham— the real thing
Alan Cuming as Desrae, marvelous in little seen "The Runaway"
Tyler Perry as Madea or is it Madea as Tyler Perry?
Ru Paul and the entire cast of every season of "Ru Paul's Drag Race"
