She's a helluva lot closer to Thatcher than the abortion promoting, state run healthcare promoting, global warming promoting Romney. Sarah Palin defeated a corrupt Republican establishment in Alaska, along with the Democrats. The main obstacle to conservative victories is not the Democrat Party. It is the Republican elite which would rather have big government than have conservative ideas win. Romney, Rove, Sununu all despise the Tea Party. Margaret Thatcher would have loved the Tea Party. Sarah Palin pushed Ted Cruz and Rand Paul to victory against the wishes of the Republican Party, then led by Mitt Romney and Rove. Palin is a real courageous conservative. Mona does not like those.
