Happy birthday, Mag-on!

maggie

Today is Baroness Thatcher’s 84th birthday.

Baroness. What a kick-ass title. I’d totally rather be a Baroness than some weenus Princess.

The chattering classes (including, sadly, the current useless pimple who heads the Tory Party) have convinced themselves that everyone hates Maggie as much as they do. So I’m hoping to convince them to package her up when she goes and send her off to the States. You can wall her bones up in the Capitol building (next to poor old Smithson, walled up in the castle) to ward off pussies.

sock it to me

She slept four hours a night and ate unions for breakfast.

Long live Maggie!

She was the daughter of a grocer, and a food chemist by trade. She made economic arguments in the simple language of a housewife doing her household budget. The political classes HATED her for stripping all pretense of complexity and nuance from governance.

Long live Maggie!

Early in her career, she hired a voice coach — one of the smartest things she ever did. It’s very hard for a woman to raise her voice without sounding…well, like Hillary Clinton. “Commanding” is hard to pull off with girly-pipes.

Man, I’d listen to Maggie read a shopping list…

I was thinking that when she dies, her bones could be divided up and placed in relequaries as protection against commies, hippies and liberals everywhere, just like they used to do with the bones of the saints…..

When are you guys going to put your Archbishop in a looney bin? Does his brain have teh AIDS? Did his mother have syphilis?

The thing you have to remember about the arch-hippie, PnB, is that because of the weird constitutional set-up in Britain, the Church of England is actually part of the state. And what that means is that the Prime Minister of the time gets to choose who becomes the next Archbish.

In the case of this clown, he was selected by (fanfare of raspberries) the Gramscian joker, Tony Blair. Who later became a Roman Catholic.

What you might call a little bomb, timed to go off later.

This is just one more reason why, come the revolution, Blair’s head will be on the highest pole on London Bridge

“to ward off pussies”

I have a picture of Reagan in my office for just this reason. I put it up during the presidential campaign. For some reason people would come in and want to talk about how dreamy Obama is. I put out the picture of Ronulus Maximus and that shit stopped immediately.

Absolutely lovely. Nobody on either side of the pond has the stones to say this any more.

Oh, Joe — splendid!

I read some great quotes from her today, but I’m kicking myself I didn’t keep track of where they were.

Yeah. I always love watching a Maggie Thatcher verbal smack down, she’s just so skilled at them. I’d love to run for congress just so I can mock other members of congress(not hard considering how dumb yet serious they are). Politicians yearn to be taken seriously and nothing hurts their egos as being mocked.

Scubafreak,

We’ll just have to leave it there.

As for swanking around in a great big brocade frock saying, “la, sir!” and hitting importunate suitors with your fan, nothing beats a Marchioness. If, on the other hand, your fancies run more towards the thigh-high boots, peaked cap and satin bustier, all the better for commanding your army of effeminate acolytes in hot-pants and mesh tank-tops, then Baroness it is.

They don’t make them like Thatcher anymore. She is a national treasure.

Shoeless Joe: Thanks for that! Love seeing Maggie smack down a clueless fool.

Scubafreak: Couldn’t see your video. I got an ‘Error 404: Page not found’ message.

It wasn’t in the filter, Mrs C. There was this guy, though:

Hi everyone
I would like to present my site:
Alprazolam Alprazolam Ambien Ambien Ativan Ativan Biaxin Biaxin Carisoprodol Carisoprodol Cipro Cipro Clomid Clomid Clonazepam Clonazepam Codeine Codeine Diazepam Diazepam
To greet!
See you!

Also, I got a spam with the title, “what jolie’s underwear hides” and I immediately thought, “ZOMG, she’s got a tail! I knew it!”

Bummer. I have to say that the part about CNN’s main focus being about “Fucking Goats” was priceless….. 😉

I had the honor to meet Mrs. Thatcher once. She is a remarkable woman, an admirable role model and a shining light for conservatives. LONG LIVE MARGARET THATCHER!

Great pic, Stoaty – She looks totally regal.

She was the daughter of a grocer, and a food chemist by trade. She made economic arguments in the simple language of a housewife doing her household budget. The political classes HATED her for stripping all pretense of complexity and nuance from governance.

I’m hoping that a certain gal from AK (who has the moxie & the common touch) can get the training in political combat to do something like this.

“You can wall her bones up in the Capitol building (next to poor old Smithson, walled up in the castle) …”

That would be appropriate as Smithson was also English.

I so loved GB when she was PM. I dearly enjoyed my time there then.

Your method of describing all in this post is truly nice, all can simply understand it, Thanks a lot.
