BUGGERED THEM SENSELESS, BUT TAUGHT THEM ABOUT LIFE (via Bryan Francoeur):
Things Are Tough All Over: But Mrs. Clinton is no Iron Lady (Peggy Noonan, November 9, 2007, Opinion Journal)
The story as I was told it is that in the early years of her prime ministership, Margaret Thatcher held a meeting with her aides and staff, all of whom were dominated by her, even awed. When it was over she invited her cabinet chiefs to join her at dinner in a nearby restaurant. They went, arrayed themselves around the table, jockeyed for her attention. A young waiter came and asked if they'd like to hear the specials. Mrs. Thatcher said, "I will have beef."Posted by Orrin Judd at November 10, 2007 10:40 AM
Yes, said the waiter. "And the vegetables?"
"They will have beef too."
