Apparently, The Quitter — who’s going to Sudan in July to see the Sphinx in the great country of Africa and generally bolster her learnin’ about furriners –  also wanted to sneak in a photo-op stop with the Iron Lady.

I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way. I am just hoping Mrs Thatcher is well enough to see me as I so admire her.

No such luck.

Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.

In what respect, Charlie?

Maybe Maggie didn’t care for The Quitter’s account of Paul Revere warnin’ those Red Coats about takin’ away our God-given right to bear arms and drop our g’s.

In any event, I’ve no doubt that the Palinese Liberation Army is, at this very moment, furiously writing lots of mean things on Thatcher’s Wikipedia page.
