Ruth Lea, Sarah Palin, Brenda Porter

I was struk by Ruth Lea's response to Chris Huhne on Question Time last night. Chris had perfectly properly challenge Ruth Lea (right wing, pro market think tanker) about her oft repeated advocacy of 'free' unfettered markets with light touch regulation. I would guess that she would back George Osborne's call earlier this year for even 'lighter' touch regulation of banks. Anyway instead of answering the question she protested that she was being bullied! Where have I heard that before?

The Democrats-in America- were faced with the challenge of bringing to book a right wing populist evangelical fundamentalist and have successfully turned her into a liability for the Republicans. Lesson to be learned.....
