The Iron Lady and SarahCuda

John O' Sullivan is an old school British conservative and he worked for Margaret Thatcher. He discusses Ms. Thatcher's rise from derision by the intelligentsia to a revered figure who along with Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II helped defeat Communism. He sees plenty in Sarah Palin that reminds him of the Iron Lady. I believe after 8 years of Obama and his Ivy League world beaters showing that a big brain full of bad ideas ain't so cool, we will have our first female President in 2016. That gives her 8  years to practice kicking the crap out of twits like Katie Couric and you can bet she will take advantage of the time.

Inevitably, Lloyd Bentsen's famous put-down of Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice-presidential debate is resurrected, such as by Paul Waugh (in the London Evening Standard) and Marie Cocco (in the Washington Post): "Newsflash! Governor, You're No Maggie Thatcher," sneered Mr. Waugh. Added Ms. Coco, "now we know Sarah Palin is no Margaret Thatcher -- and no Dan Quayle either!"

Jolly, rib-tickling stuff. But, as it happens, I know Margaret Thatcher. Margaret Thatcher is a friend of mine. And as a matter of fact, Margaret Thatcher and Sarah Palin have a great deal in common.
