Thatcher Will Not Meet Palin

Here’s a hint to Sarah Palin: If your political followers call themselves the “Tea Party,” they might not be greeted so warmly by the British. Palin said last week that while on the way to Sudan, she hoped to stop over in Britain and see Margaret Thatcher, who Palin said she “so admires.” But Thatcher aides said Tuesday that Palin is likely to be “thwarted” if she tries to see Thatcher, and not only because of the former prime minister’s ailing health. “Lady Margaret would not be seeing Sarah Palin,” one source said. “That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.”
