Quote of the Day (July 4, 2011)

Did Margaret Thatcher “refuse” to attend Reagan statue dedication?
William A. Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection:
“Margaret Thatcher is not in good health, rarely goes out or receives visitors, and therefore had to miss the dedication of a statue of Ronald Reagan in London... The reasonableness of the reaction to Thatcher’s non-appearance contrasts with the hyperventilation (and not just by the left) in early June when some anonymous ‘ally’ of Thatcher supposedly (and falsely) told The Guardian that Thatcher refused to meet Sarah Palin. In fact, The Guardian went so far at to state that Thatcher, by contrast to her rebuff of Palin, would be attenting the Reagan statute dedication... Now that The Guardian story, down to the detail of Thatcher attending the Reagan dedication to prove ‘her level,’ has been revealed to be phony, will The Guardian and those who used The Guardian story to bash Palin admit that they were wrong?”
