Margaret Atwood, responding to the question of whether she owns a Sarah Palin action figure:
No, I am afraid of what the actions would be. Read the book by Antonia Fraser called "The Warrior Queens." You will see that no woman ruler has been successful if she has been an advocate for women at large. Not one, ever. It’s the Thatcher model, which is, "All women should stay home and take care of their babies except me."
