Maggie 'n' Madge

A bit late to the party, perhaps, but I couldn't let Madonna's recent fist-gnawingly embarrassing error of judgement pass without comment. You'd assume that an Anglophile who was married to a Brit for eight years would know that publicly expressing admiration for Maggie Thatcher might be ill-advised - especially one who very much enjoys cultivating and playing upon their status as a feminist and gay icon.

But no - Madge approvingly quoted the woman whose government introduced Section 28 and who once described feminism as "poison". Still, I suppose she's used to getting up noses - just not those of her own most ardent fans...
