Margaret Thatcher Refuses to Meet with Sarah Palin Because She’s “Nuts”

Oh this is precious!

One of Sarah Palin’s political idols thinks she’s nuts and won’t meet with her.   I suppose Palin will be calling someone “nuts” soon.

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.

Trump: “Anthony Weiner is a bad guy. He’s a psycho”

Pot…meet kettle!

Salon

Donald Trump took to YouTube today to share his thoughts on Rep. Anthony Weiner and the fallout from his recent Twitter scandal. It seems the mogul and the congressman don’t have a great relationship.

“The fact is, I know [Weiner] very well,” Trump says in his short video statement. “He called me all the time looking for campaign contributions — it would never stop.” (“I don’t think I ever called him,” Trump adds.)

“Anthony Weiner is a bad guy. He’s a psycho. When this came out, I was not surprised at all. … I thought that his career was so important to him. The fact is, what he was doing was more important — or, probably, he just had a death wish.”

Trump’s conclusion? While Weiner is a “liar” who “should never, ever be allowed to run for office again,” “one good thing” has come out of the whole sorry situation: “I’ll never have to give him campaign contributions.”

Glenn Beck to Charge for Online Show

Does Glenn Beck really think he will be successful with his new online network venture by charging viewers a monthly subscription?  I think someone gave Beck some bad advice…

The Daily Beast

Glenn Beck is about to find out just how loyal his followers are. When he moves from Fox News to his own Internet network, Beck will start charging a
monthly subscription fee to view his show. “I think we might be a bit early,” Beck said Monday about his plan. “But I’d rather be ahead of the pack than part
of it.”

Beck’s new venture is risky, as it is the first of its kind and will be based on his own personal brand. Beck’s show will simply be titled “Glenn Beck”
and will run for two hours on weekdays, although Beck said he hopes to eventually have a mix of scripted and non-scripted shows alongside his daily
show.

His network, GBTV, will be accessible starting Tuesday and the new show will begin on Sept. 12.

Rick Santorum: ‘America Was a Great Country Before 1965′

One could only assume that Santorum is implying that this country was better off before “the Blacks got their civil rights…” or something to that effect.  Clearly Santorum is playing to the racist, tea party crowds with that statement. 

Yet, it seems to be a pattern with most of the GOP presidential contenders, say the most shocking thing you can muster up in order to have at least a two day news cycle and garner the attention needed to win the GOP nomination.

Racism in America is no longer being swept under a rug.  They are still using coded words and phrases but the implications are clear.

Crooks & Liars

While bowing down to the corrupt Ralph Reed by showing up at his conference this weekend, the former Senator whose name should not be Googled, Man-on-Dog Santorum let the audience there know that he apparently doesn’t think putting our social safety nets in place is part of what’s made America “exceptional.”

Here’s more from TPM — Rick Santorum: Obama’s Support For Entitlements Shows He Doesn’t Believe America Is Exceptional:

Rick Santorum has a message for President Obama: Despite what you may think, America was pretty awesome before the mid-60s.

Santorum is one of two presidential candidates speaking during the Saturday sessions at the Faith and Freedom Conference in downtown DC. At home before the social conservative crowd today, he offered up a ripping speech that touched on his long history as a national culture warrior.
