Coulter: Thatcher Wanted To Teach Palin How To "Speak Proper English"
MOFOPOLITICS Video excerpt via RealClearPolitics ^ | April 8, 2013 | MOFOPOLITICS Video

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. She’s a fine person, but that isn’t what she’s pursuing.  (via MP)

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.

I'm not going to the link, but if Colter said this it's only because she's jealous of Palin and is worried by her (Colter’s) increasing irrelevance.

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.

Ha, ha, ha. I'm guessing the FRee Republic whiny bunch will be all over Ann on this. Of course they were praising her and attacking me a couple of days ago when i said her SECOND long article about the American murderess in Italy was a waste of time. Where do you guys stand on this ?

So far as I can ascertain, the only truth here is that Palin's people contacted Thatcher's about a possible meeting when Palin was planning to visit Britain and they didn't get it.

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.

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?

What a maroon, that Coulter chick.

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?

Margaret Thatcher did not ‘snub’ Sarah Palin: The truth about the Iron Lady and the former Governor of Alaska

The author of the piece, Nile Gardiner, was a former aid to Lady Thatcher. He writes:

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. ...... 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 Thatcher’s 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 Thatcher’s name to smear a major US politician.

Care to try again, Ann?

“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.

Well, America is not GB and GB is not America.  We made that clear in 1776. 

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
