Skip to comments.Coulter: Thatcher Wanted To Teach Palin How To "Speak Proper English"
Posted on 04/08/2013 2:18:43 PM PDT by Bratch
COULTER: One thing that I know, because I know people who know her, is when Sarah Palin first burst on the scene, the political scene, she wanted to have a meeting with Palin, because she saw raw political talent, but wanted to teach Sarah Palin to do what she did.
COULTER: To teach her to speak proper English. Palin did not meet with her, and just a year or two ago, when Sarah Palin was promoting some reality show or something, she went to England. And she announced to the press that she was planning on dropping by to see Lady Thatcher, and Lady Thatcher put out the word that she was not available.
COULTER: What, I think, a lot of us saw, that Sarah Palin did have raw political talent. And if she had been willing to put her nose to the grindstone and pursue improving herself, speaking proper English, reading stuff, knowing lots of things, she could have been great. Shes a fine person, but that isnt what shes pursuing. (via MP)
And boyfriends. LOL
Oh shut up, bitch. My goodness.
that was to Ann, not you.
The English invented a language they can’t even speak.
This thread should be entertaining.
Ann is a person I used to like. Ann is a person I used to respect. Her comments are offensive and nasty. She should be ashamed.
Thatcher’s dementia was very far advanced by the time anyone heard of Palin.
This is either satire or it’s Coulter who is just getting senile.
I like Ann but her view of certain people is rather idiosynchratic. She is smart, but she tends to misjudge people for some reason. It is some kind of weird blind spot.
I like Palin a lot. Sarah is Sarah. She is principled and she is a fighter. If Ann is looking for her to be a Romney or a Christy, she’ll have to wait a long time.
Ditto to what you said. Can't stand Coulter and I wish she would go away.
I’ll take the earthy no-nonsense straight talk of Sarah Palin over the disingenuous inflated grandiose verbiage of most politicians any day of the week.
Ann Coulter is part of the left Eastern Liberal Establishment...as Ronald Reagan called it
Sarah Palin is quite well spoken
Let’s be honest. And not fool ourselves. Thatcher indeed had it all together, sharp and witty and eloquent while Palin does indeed seem rather ditzy. She even has the look.
Not saying she’s not a good conservative or person or basically smart, just that she really truly does not stack up to a woman like the Iron Lady. In a debate she’d be sliced and diced. It’s like Bush vs. Reagan.
It's not so hard to understand an 85-year old in poor health wanting to avoid too many meetings with new people.
Everybody hijacked the story to prove their own point and if Ann didn't do that herself, she fell for people who did.
Coulter is an elitist snob about a lot of things. Palin has always been one of them.
Post 16 is for you guys.
I sense Ann trending toward the Ariana Huffington path to liberalism.
Ann Coulter regurgitates the leftist meme that Sarah Palin is ‘stupid’ and she does it in an underhanded way, heaping praise on Palin while making it plain that the former Alaska governor needed ‘help’ in articulating her views and learning how to speak like a proper politician. The condescension is palpable - and offensive. Alleged conservative Ann Coulter using the death of Margaret Thatcher to get in a cheap shot at Sarah Palin is disgusting. This latest comment, along with Coulter’s quixotic pimping of quasi-liberal New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, has rendered Ann Coulter’s political observations basically useless and raises the question, who’s side is she on, anyway?
Seems she has been taken in by all the Leftist (the Guardian) and RINO (list your own favourites) propaganda. Let's use the memory-bank that is the Internet and go back to 2011 when Palin was "snubbed" by Thatcher, or was she?
The author of the piece, Nile Gardiner, was a former aid to Lady Thatcher. He writes:
I have spoken to Lady Thatchers 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. ...... 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. There was never any snub of Sarah Palin by Lady Thatchers office. However, there has been a great deal of mischief-making and unpleasantness from sections of the liberal press in a vain and futile attempt to use Margaret Thatchers name to smear a major US politician.
Care to try again, Ann?
Hey Dimwit, Lady Thatcher’s Alzheimer’s was well advanced by the time Palin came around.
“Ann is SUCH a good judge of political candidates.”
I hate to say it but even Ann gets it right once in awhile. If Palin had gotten a diction coach and moderated her voice to a mild screech and learned the definition of a run on sentence she would have had a lot more punch. She didn’t do it and sadly it has affected her credibilty and her political career.
Thanks Ann Coulter for mentioning that Mrs. Thatcher knew who is Sarah Palin and wanted to meet with her, but did she know about you?
As oppose to 0bama “perfect” speeeeeeech???
I'm sure she reads "stuff". She just doesn't read or believe the leftist claptrap that passes for "stuff". As for how she speaks that's EXACTLY her appeal. No parsing words. No wordsmithing. She speaks her mind and does it well.
Dyslexia does affect the brain
Ann is single. Sarah is happily married.
With the right, Sarah is more popular than Ann, and prettier.
I believe this explains Ann’s palpable jealousy of Sarah since her ascendancy.
Oh Ann..looks like you have been around Bill Mahar for far too long. What is it Ann, pissed that Sarah won’t support Chris The Hippo Christie, pissed that Sarah probably didnt read your book..tell me Ann..what is YOUR definition of “proper English?”
Plus she didn’t finish her term as Governor.
The Brits have a lovely endearing term for harridans like Coulter
Starts with c....capital in her case
Considered far more vulgar here
Sorry TLB...truth is
I can see you haven’t met many English people. Or else the wrong sort.
This is the only thing this media whore could think in remembrance of a Great woman?
Vile disrespect from vile woman.
Hey Coulter! Stick it up your boney behind.
I have studied Palin and confirm not only with all my PhD credentials from one of the world’s top universities but most importantly with the wisdom God gave me that Sarah Palin is highly intelligent and more so than most of the biological bile that represents the global political establishment.
Years ago Palin was quite green around the ears when it came to the national stage and its access via the power broker establishment inside the District of Corruption. But since she has become more aware, honing her presentation and delivery and is developing into a fine conservative stateswoman.
Unlike Coulter who jumps into bed and spreads for the disgusting Maher and then feigns to counsel us on the superior attributes of the Flip Flop Master, Herr RINO Romney, Palin is truly interested in preserving, continuing and extending the American experiment.
Yes I agree, and for Coulter to rely on knowing people who knew Thatcher is just childish.
However as I grab my fire extinguisher for protection, quite apart from Ann Coulter I have commented that Sarah Palin failed to cultivate her speaking style, including when giving interviews and commenting on FOX. She just talks and talks and talks and didn’t learn that a few well placed words would convey authority.
AH!.. the English that think Monarchy is cute and democracy IS NOT Mob Rule by mobsters..
Both being the same thing with different Mobs and mobsters..
Annie is really not too smart..
After all Myth Romney the inventor of the model for Obama-Care.!!. Duuuuugh!..
Oh Annie, Annie, Annie.
Ain’t you special.....
I was hoping maybe Coulter would eventually find her way back, after her passionate embrace of Christie and Romney, including that insane article she wrote praising Romneycare. But she’s just too much of a damned worthless RINO/Eastern-establishment elitist snob. I’ve grown to thoroughly hate their guts.
She can just go burn in hell, as far as I’m concerned.
That’s because of they are Anti Denteye....
And how many conservatives did Coulter help elect to Congress?
You know Sarah doesn't hold a Grudge, she has posted at least three articles on Facebook Book mourning Lady Thatcher's passing.
Sarcasm - go watch the movie “Snatch”
I’ve tried to give Ann the benefit of the doubt the last year or so, but this just seals it for me. STFU and go eat a burger Ann!
Speaking of proper English, I think that Obama guard dog and constitutional law expert Coulter should brush up on her English by artually reading the Constitution. /s
Ann Coulter, put your bitter lips to my A$$.
