Note to Sarah Palin: Words have consequences. H/t Andrew Sullivan:
If someone could translate, please advise.
Palin was clearly using Thatcher's death as a means of comparing herself to Thatcher for her own weirdo, grifter motives, which appear to include setting herself up to be The Next Thatcher. The Iron Punchline. The Chick-Fil-Lady. Put another way, Palin basically wrote that she and Thatcher are the same -- look at all these examples! -- therefore she deserves to be taken just as seriously.
