Mark Steyn has not yet

Mark Steyn has not yet turned his attention to the Jimmy Carter/Nobel Peace Prize phenomenon, but he has found an almost equally worthy subject this morning in his weekly London Telegraph column, “Let slip the Babs of War.” Let me quote the first paragraph of his column:
“One thing I like about the world’s conservative parties is that there’s minimal risk of running into celebrities. Mrs Thatcher, asked to pick a favourite record, named the Beverly Sisters’ classic version of How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? – as pithy a distillation of Thatcherism as any, in that the singer’s enthusiasm for the doggie is explicitly linked to his cost. However, at no time did it occur to Mrs Thatcher to get the Bevs in to the Treasury to brief Geoffrey Howe and Nigel Lawson on macro-economic policy.”
