    Margaret Thatcher's Giant Turquoise Feather Duster
    What an extraordinary and antiquated prop

    Long before Barack Obama dusted off his shoulders, Margaret Thatcher used a bright turquoise feather duster to sweep away the dirt of lingering socialism at the Conservative Party Conference in October 1975.

    The Telegraph, which has a great old black-and-white picture of the occasion, says that it was "given to her by a member of the audience" at the party conference, where she delivered these remarks. Of all the images of her as a leader, this is the one that's stuck in my mind since yesterday. What a deft use of imagery -- sweeping away old ideas, dustbin of history, a woman leader ready to clean up the nation, etc. -- and how very dated! The idea of a female party leader today in the West using a feather duster as a prop -- impossible to imagine.

    The more I read about this woman, the smaller 0bama becomes in my minds eye. The diff between a Statesman and a mere politician becomes more and more evident.

    I wish I'd said that!

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    We already are just numbers in a computer...it's called our SSN number, which is now received at birth as your ID number even though it was never meant to be that.

    Yes. He is very small indeed. But he does seem to "tower" in his malignant narcissism. Which seems to be rather infectious among leaders of both parties atm, especially his own.
