Margaret Thatcher: A Pundit’s Fantasy


I can see why the Times published this Thatcher hagiography–she is a pundit’s wet dream.

This version of Thatcher has everything Beltway pundits love–Strong leadership! Doing things! Reinforcing the privileges of the rich!

The idealized Thatcher is what pundits would get if they could combine their 2000s fantasy with John McCain with their 2010 fantasy with Paul Ryan.

I also love how fantasy Thatcher totally forgets about her horrid policies in Northern Ireland.
