Skip to comments.Coulter: Thatcher Wanted To Teach Palin How To "Speak Proper English"

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.
