Ann Coulter: Sarah Palin Should Have Learned 'Proper English' According to Margaret Thatcher (VIDEO)
Ann Coulter laid into Sarah Palin on Monday during an interview on Geraldo Rivera's radio show, charging that the former Alaska governor should have learned to speak "proper English."
Coulter called into the show to discuss Margaret Thatcher's death and brought up the still contested story about a potential meeting between Palin and the Iron Lady. According to Coulter, Thatcher wanted to meet with Palin when she broke out on the national political scene "to teach [her] to speak proper English." Palin was allegedly uninterested at the time and asked to meet with Thatcher years later, but the former British prime minister declined.
When Rivera asked Coulter her point in recalling that story, Coulter argued, "What, I think, a lot of us saw, that Sarah Palin did have raw political talent. And if she had been willing to put her nose to the grindstone and pursue improving herself, speaking proper English, reading stuff, knowing lots of things, she could have been great."
Coulter has ripped Palin in the past. Ahead of the 2012 presidential election, Coulter harshly criticized Palin and her supporters.

While this is probably true, coming from Ann, it's the pot calling the kettle black
Reading stuff? Knowing lots of things?
This story cannot be in any way true. Margaret Thatcher didn't even know who she herself was in 2008, much less Sarah Palin.
In all fairness, Sarah Palin thinks Margaret Thatcher is the Queen of England, and Sarah doesn't bow to royalty.
R3 is right - Thatcher's dementia was well advanced by 2008 and she's not likely to have had any idea of who Sarah Palin was. Ann Coulter is lying again.
The Baroness Thatcher had mentally left us long before the national emergence of that Alaskan piece of white trash, Sarah Palin, in 2008.
Dementia had been in full swing for Thatcher for several years. But even if Thatcher had been healthy, there is no way in the world that Thatcher would have bothered with Palin. Please. The mere notion of Maggie even giving Palin a brief thought is utter nonsense.
Yep, Ann is lying AGAIN. As others have said, Margaret was already long gone mentally by 2008. I can't believe dummy Geraldo didn't call her out on that.
Margaret must have been looney if she thought that Palin was capable of learning anything.
