The far left Palin-hating cranks at The Guardian reported this week that aides to Margaret Thatcher told them, “Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin… That would be belittling for Margaret – Sarah Palin is nuts.”
We all knew this did not sound like something Lady Thatcher would say.
It looks like we were right.

Margaret Thatcher being used to smear Sarah Palin?
As a strong conservative American with family origins in Britain this simply does not seem right. In a week that Obama sides with Argentina and calls the Falklands the “Malvinas”, comments attributed to Lady Thatcher’s staff are being used to discredit a leader of American conservatism.
Further, the remarks are an insult to me and to other Sarah Palin backers. I am a 60 year old with advanced degrees in medicine and business who has started businesses and been the CEO of two of them. Is Lady Thatcher’s position that I am unable to judge the sanity of those I support?
I urge Lady Thatcher, who is a real hero to many Americans, to re-evaluate this alleged derogation of Sarah Palin, and if possible to meet with her directly to strengthen the cross Atlantic ties of freedom loving Brits and Americans.
