No Margaret Thatcher

Matt Lewis interviews Thatcher biographer Claire Berlinski about the Iron Lady's alleged parallels with Sarah Palin:

Money quote from Berlinski:

[Palin is] obviously a talented politician ... [T]here's something so ridiculous, however, about Sarah Palin as a serious candidate for the presidency. It's really a case, almost, of mass psychosis -- that anyone could ever have been seriously considering this.
