The Thatcher In Pelosi

More

This rhetorical style could easily have come out of Maggie's mouth:

You go through the gate. If the gate's closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we'll pole vault in. If that doesn't work, we'll parachute in. But we're going to get health care reform passed for the American people.

And, of course, Thatcher presided over a real socialist healthcare system and in eleven years never questioned its existence. Not many Republicans will tell you that.
