More National Review foolishness. This time from Jay Nordlinger:

Will Sarah P. [Palin] be considered a woman — by the media, by the “chattering classes”? That is a question worth pondering. Possibly, she’ll be considered just a conservative Republican. Did anyone ever consider Mrs. Thatcher a woman — in a political-electoral context?

The answer to this, as anyone with any knowledge of British politics could have told him, is a resounding, unequivocal Yes.

Another easy answer to a stupid question. And yes, I should stop reading these people...
