Daily Mail: Controversial US politician Sarah Palin could soon be on her way to Britain to boost her hopes of challenging Barack Obama in the 2012 US presidential election.
Her representatives approached Margaret Thatcher to ask for a meeting as part of a bid to enhance her claim to be the ‘heir to Ronald Reagan’ and prepare to challenge Mr Obama.
And Lady Thatcher has agreed to see Mrs Palin, who stood as the Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2008. A spokesman said: ‘We had an informal approach asking if Lady Thatcher would meet Mrs Palin if she comes to Britain and we said yes.’
I think this can be considered the most obvious tip off to date that Palin is going to run in 2012. The meeting will do two things for Palin. It (along with her speech in China) will add more international exposure to her resume and it helps her claim the mantle of Reagan. Not that Palin needs any help with the latter. Out of all the Republicans to come rolling down the pike since Reagan, Palin is the closest Reagan clone by far.
I would pay good money to be a fly on the wall at that meeting. Both Palin and Thatcher have a natural knack for using simple truths to bash the brains out of their opponents. Remember this video?
