According to Nicholas Watt at guardian.co.uk, the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher doesn’t want to meet Sarah Palin because quote “Sarah Palin is nuts”.
Palin had wanted to meet Thatcher who she says that she greatly admires, but unsurprisingly, these feelings are unreciprocated.
Love her or hate her, Thatcher is an achiever. She was Prime Minister of one of the most powerful countries in the world for 11 years, overseeing its recovery from the Winter of Discontent. Palin on the other hand typifies the modern famous-for-nothing celebrity. She is an unemployed Facebook blogger with a reality TV show who appears on Fox News occasionally. The only major achievements she has was that she was mayor of a town nobody has heard of and Governor of Alaska for half a term, a state that pretty much runs itself due to the oil drilling industry paying all the bills. The only reason anyone outside Alaska knows who Sarah Palin is was because a bunch of faceless party insiders shoved her into the limelight to ensure that the wingnut section of the Republican party would have a candidate after the moderate and respectable John McCain won the party’s nomination.
Thatcher shouldn’t waste her time on the likes of Palin in the same way she should not waste her time meeting a contestant from Big Brother.
