The Delivery, With Claire Berlinski

Jimmie Bise’s The Sundries Shack gives us The Delivery, featuring Margaret Thatcher biographer Claire Berlinski. There Is No Alternative sounds like a great read (I wish list everything, then go on a spree later).
The chat interface for the podcast probably makes sense to whoever wrote it. I waded through the login and spent several minutes randomly Tweeting prior to realizing that the widget is tabbed, and the proper chat was on the other tab. The crowd was most lively.
Since Jimmie was so cool as to lift my question from the chat (could he recover the transcript for The Sundries Shack?) I should do the honor of linking him and mentioning it.
The question was the obvious Iron Lady / Sarah Palin comparison. I thought Claire articulated her answer quite well, to the point I had to agree.
Maybe Jimmie can excerpt that little bit, or at least mention an offset time for the harried.

    Berlinski’s Thatcher Bio is indeed great.
