“Of all the beautiful tributes out there, the best obit of Thatcher is missing — the one that would have been written by my late friend and mentor Tony Blankley, my predecessor as TWT Editorial Page Editor,” writes Brett Decker, Editor-in-Chief of Rare, the new conservative media outlet, to FishbowlDC on the death of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. “No doubt those two are in heaven together talking politics now. Tony was born in London and became an American patriot, serving in the Reagan White House and in Congress for Speaker Gingrich. Tony’s dad was Winston Churchill’s accountant, and Tony never quite shook that subtle lingering English accent. They don’t make ‘em like Maggie or Tony anymore — tough and principled political fighters who are also classy.” Tony Blankley died of cancer in January of 2012.
