I’m looking at that “never compromise” slogan and thinking how the anti-Obama 21st Century righties would rather pull down the temple than be responsible legislators, and I’m telling myself that’s how all nutbag righties are — no compromise, pure agenda, we’re doing the bidding of the rightwing God. And I’m smiling again at the notion of putting them all into green concentration camps. So no heart-swelling emotional currents for Meryl’s Maggie Thatcher…not from this corner, at least.

And yet I know, perversely, that I’m going to enjoy the hell out of Streep’s performance. I think we all know that.
