Rush Limbaugh: Wrong on Margaret Thatcher and Sarah Palin (The Guardian strikes back!)
The Guardian ^ | Thursday, June 9, 2011 | Nicholas Watt

Posted on 06/08/2011 6:45:20 PM PDT by kristinn

Rush Limbaugh the US conservative radio host, was angry on Wednesday after I blogged that Margaret Thatcher would not receive Sarah Palin if the darling of the Tea Party movement visits London in July.

Limbaugh opened his show with a lengthy denunciation of the Guardian after I quoted an ally of Thatcher on Tuesday describing Palin as "nuts".

SNIP

Members of the Thatcher circle are highly protective of the former prime minister, 86, who has suffered from dementia for some years. They ration her appearances with great care and are careful to ensure that she is not used by unsuitable politicians. This is why they feel so strongly that Thatcher should not meet Palin: they believe it would be beneath the dignity of the Iron Lady to meet such a lightweight figure who would use the meeting to burnish her credentials as the keeper of the Reagan flame.

The Thatcher ally quoted in my original blog told me on Wednesday that members of her circle were standing by their decision after the description of Palin as "nuts" was reported in the US. This is what the ally told me on Wednesday:

"Margaret will not be meeting Sarah Palin. If necessary we will make sure that Margaret has an off day when Palin is in London."

SNIP

The lesson is clear. Report people's real thoughts about Palin with care or Rush Limbaugh will take a run at you with his cigar.

I believe Limbaugh. But not the ultra-left-wing British rag The Guardian.

if this turns out to be so, it is a shame the Grand Margaret Thatcher fell into such unsuitable caretakers in her later years. Not fitting for a woman who made such a contribution to the same movement as Palin is today.

I believe that someone who thinks they know Thatcher said Pail in nuts. But as they said, Lady Thatcher is suffering from dementia and does not know what she is saying anymore.

I wonder if Ronald Reagan were still alive, Nancy Reagan would've kept Sarah Palin away him.

I think she probably would have blocked Palin from access to Reagan.

Whereas Reagan himself would almost certainly have been delighted with Sarah Palin, if he had been able to meet her before he went into decline due to Alzheimer's.

Wow. I expect Thatcher, if she were in her right mind, would love to meet Sarah. I also expect Sarah wanted to meet her based on her respect and admiration for Thatcher.

However, the various “handlers” around Thatcher are all clearly delusional, so it’s best the situation be avoided at this point. ;-P

Sarah announced that was invited by someone to meet Lady Thatchers last year before a scheduling conflict ended that and apparently now Sarah last week sounded confident that she has plans to possibly meet Lady Thatcher if she was in better health, next month. So Sarah said this publicly but others so called “inner circle” are Thatcher are saying these things “anonymously”.....hmmm!

Then I guess Palin won’t be meeting with Lady Thatcher when she visits London. Palin shouldn’t have made any pronouncements until she was able to work something out.

I think they sort of destroyed the whole purpose of their own article and control racket. Leftist are the most clever imbeciles in human history.

The British SAS need to make a strike...take out the miscreant caretakers and transport Lady "Belgrado" Thatcher to a place where she gets the loving care and attention she needs.

Well like the Rolling Thunder. She was invited by someone claiming to have authority. She announced it. Then gets blasted by a lefty other officer who did not know his buddy had invited her. Gives the left and media a chance to freely tee-off on Sarah, but she just keeps on a comin’
