There Is No Alternative

Peter Robinson's Uncommon Knowledge web-video series is uncommonly good. This is what The Charlie Rose Show could be if Charlie weren't such an elitist hack.

This latest interview with writer/journalist/scholar Claire Berlinski is worthy of everyone's time. She talks about Margaret Thatcher and how the Iron Lady turned Britain around, something that was thought to be an impossible task.

In part 3, Berlinski tackles the inevitable question: Is Sahara Palin comparable to Thatcher? I love Sarah Palin and would sleep just fine if she were president, but I definitely have qualms with her as a political leader. Berlinski explains this beautifully and her concerns apply to anyone running for president in 2012.

There is no alternative getting around it...I'm in love.
