Subject:        doting wenches in Julius Caesar

'Julius Caesar': I ii 274-279:

Casca: ".....Three or four wenches, where I stood, cried, 'Alas! good
soul,' and forgave him with all their hearts:  but there's no heed to be
taken of them; if Caesar had stabbed their mothers, they    would have
done no less"

Do those startling lines suggest that there are some for whom  leaders
[or perhaps celebrities?] are beyond  criticism?
