She not only used Lady Thatcher's death to attack Palin, but also used a rumor proven to be untrue against the former Alaska Governor.

From The Right Scoop:
On the day that Margaret Thatcher passes, Coulter goes after Sarah Palin by saying that Thatcher wanted to teach Palin ‘how to speak proper English’ but Palin refused to meet with her. Then in 2010, she says, when Palin was promoting ‘some reality show or something’ and went to England and wanted to visit Thatcher, that Thatcher snubbed her and refused to meet with Palin.
I don’t know about Thatcher wanting to ‘teach’ Palin ‘how to speak proper English’, but why even go there? On a day when there is so much to be said about Thatcher, Coulter turns it into an attack on Sarah Palin. And then she spreads the liberal lie that Palin was snubbed by Thatcher which is not true (h/t: RWN):
Coulter, for all her claim to being a conservative, wouldn't even be considered a RINO. She's just a liberal, New England elitist who arrogantly looks down on Palin because Palin is not Ivy League. Plus, you wonder if the unmarried Coulter may be jealous of the married with kids Palin.LEGAL INSURRECTION – It turns out that the Guardian story was a hoax, as reported by Nile Gardiner:I have spoken to Lady Thatcher’s Private Office regarding the story, and they confirm that the attack on Sarah Palin definitely did not come from her office, and in no way reflects her views. As a former aide to Margaret Thatcher myself, I can attest that this kind of thinking is entirely alien to her, and that such remarks would never be made by her office. She has always warmly welcomed like-minded figures in the United States, and has in the past met with numerous US presidential candidates and political dignitaries when they have visited London. But at the age of 85 she is now able to receive very few visitors at all.There was never any snub of Sarah Palin by Lady Thatcher’s office. However, there has been a great deal of mischief-making and unpleasantness from sections of the liberal press in a vain and futile attempt to use Margaret Thatcher’s name to smear a major US politician.
