A Long Beach, Calif., man held a one-person protest this week, saying he was denied health care even though he signed up for health insurance through Covered CA, the state’s Obamacare insurance exchange.

You know, a period would have sufficed where that question mark (still) stands. Maybe we’re doing something wrong, because we don’t see a link attached to Donna Brazile’s tweet where she says, “Read this.” So, you might as well read this: Twitter’s reaction to Brazile’s tweet from earlier today.

Okay, what did the #ironlady do to advance Great Britain and the world? Did she leave lasting footprints for women in politics? #justsayin

Happy warriors had no problem answering Brazile’s question about Thatcher’s lasting footprint.

@donnabrazile Thatcher's footprint's so big, you're standing in it and can't see its edges, girl. #justsayin

You haters on the Right might not know this, but Margaret Thatcher, who was known as the “Iron Lady,” broke the glass ceiling — over and over, apparently. We haven’t learned so much from a CNN personality since Soledad O’Brien and Wikipedia teamed up to teach us about critical race theory.

Well, I could send more of the usual right wing hate machine, but why bother? The point was simple enough. #ironlady broke glass ceiling!

Again, Margaret Thatcher broke the glass ceiling for women in politics. In 1979, she became the first woman to lead a western nation.

In the future, think a little before you unleash the insults and worse – mind numbing reactionary rants. #thatcher broke the glass ceiling!

. @donnabrazile Funny, that 'glass ceiling' thing sounds familiar..did we hear that somewhere today?

— Gina Maria (@Ginabeans22) April 9, 2013

Yes, where did we hear that?

"She stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be shattered." —Obama on Margaret Thatcher's passing

@donnabrazile Margaret Thatcher breaking the glass ceiling is the smallest of her achievements.
