Has this stupid, God-bothering snowbilly ever been wrong, really? About anything? And have the smug “liberals” attacking her as some kind of deranged ignoramus ever been right?
This running joke about Ms. Palin – who went on to become a Fox News commentator, star of her own brief reality show, and well-paid Obama scold on behalf of the tea party – came to mind when she went on Facebook to comment on the crisis in Ukraine:
“Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” she wrote. “I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine. Here’s what this ‘stupid’ ‘insipid woman’ predicted back in 2008: ‘After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.’”
Then she went on Fox News to elaborate.
“Back in 2008, I accurately predicted the possibility of Putin feeling emboldened to invade Ukraine because I could see what kind of leader Barack Obama would be,” she said. “The bullies of the world are always emboldened by indecision and moral equivalence. We can expect more of this sort of thing in a world where America is gutting its military and ‘leading from behind.'”
As I said the other day, there’s not one damned thing any American president, including both the gutless fraud we have squatting in the White House now and Fantasy President Palin, can or will do about anything Putin decides to undertake in Ukraine, up to and including giving every defenseless civilian an atomic wedgie before having them all beheaded with a garden trowel. But as with her Death Panels formulation and much else, Palin sees things a lot more clearly than any self-enamored supergenius like Obama ever will.
