(Via Legal Insurrection) So sayeth Nile Gardner, who did one of those things that’s apparently beyond the reach of everybody who gleefully reported that Margaret Thatcher had snubbed Sarah Palin when the latter requested a visit. To wit, he checked with her office.
I have spoken to Lady Thatcher’s Private Office regarding the story, and they confirm that the attack on Sarah Palin definitely did not come from her office, and in no way reflects her views. As a former aide to Margaret Thatcher myself, I can attest that this kind of thinking is entirely alien to her, and that such remarks would never be made by her office. She has always warmly welcomed like-minded figures in the United States, and has in the past met with numerous US presidential candidates and political dignitaries when they have visited London. But at the age of 85 she is now able to receive very few visitors at all.
Bolding mine. and may I say in passing that the Left’s reflexive hatred of Sarah Palin is easily one the most pathetic sexual fetishes that I have seen in over twenty years of being a member of the counterculture*? Honestly, most of these people would be happier perusing clown porn. They’d certainly be more psychologically healthy.
PS: I never believed the rumor in the first place. Maggie always had class.
