Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher

Great article by John O'Sullivan (love the last name). Not so sure I care for the title, but it did catch my attention! Glad I read this one:

Conservative Snobs Are Wrong About Palin
I know Maggie Thatcher. The two women have a lot in common.
Being listed in fourth place for Time magazine's "Person of the Year," as Sarah Palin was for 2008, sounds a little like being awarded the Order of Purity (Fourth Class). But it testifies to something important.

Though regularly pronounced sick, dying, dead, cremated and scattered at sea, Mrs. Palin is still amazingly around. She has survived more media assassination attempts than Fidel Castro has survived real ones (Cuban official figure: 638). In her case, one particular method of assassination is especially popular -- namely, the desperate assertion that, in addition to her other handicaps, she is "no Margaret Thatcher."
