Some have compared Sarah Palin to Margaret Thatcher.

I don't think so. Different styles.

This anecdote I first read in an article by Peggy Noonan, discussing, among other things, Hillary and her use of the victim gambit. It's one of my favorite Thatcher stories.

Maggie, after a long day of meetings, took her staff to dinner. At the restaurant, she informed the waiter, "I will have the beef."

The waiter asked, "And for the vegetables?"

Thatcher replied, "They will have the beef as well."
