It's the Next Logical Step

Fox Hires Fake Obama to Debate Presidential Candidates - Gawker

Well, why not? Right wingers (and some leftists) have been debating for years with an imaginary Obama who exists only in their imaginations.

"Obama said he was going to bring all the troops home!" No, he said he was going to up troop levels in Afghanistan and draw down in Iraq. Which he's in the process of doing.

"Obama is full of anti-white rage!" Yeah, right.

"Obama should know that Marxism doesn't work!" Which is why he's not a Marxist.

"I don't want me or my special needs son to have to appear in front of Obama's Death Panel!" Good for you. There ain't no such animal, and never was.

And so on.

One Thatcher ally told the Guardian: "Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts."

Does anyone else find the most surprising thing about this story is that Margaret Thatcher is still alive?
