Because she is an actress, and her type fit the role (which she accepted, by the way)?
Is there a role for Melissa Joan Hart or Angie Harmon on this show?
R3 "This show" went off the air in 2006.
The producers realize Cherry needed to expand her myopic political views.

She's doing a send up on Marsha Blackburn. Marsha Blackburn is a hard core Republican out of Tennessee who is by no remote means LGBT friendly at all. I'm linking to a you tube clip of Marsha Blackburn in case anyone is interested.
To me it is like Cherry Jones (who is from Tennessee) basically did a sly parody of Marsha Blackburn and I think that is really great because Marsha Blackburn is an intolerant minded piece of shit who sadly might one day become Governor of Tennessee.
