Sarah Palin hit the nail on the head with her Ukraine predictions and she made sure that everyone knew this when she took to her Facebook page on Friday. Palin refreshed folks' memories on how she saw this coming with the Ukraine and Putin back about six years ago. It appears that Palin took the opportunity to boast saying, “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” according to CBS News on March 1.
It was back in October of 2008 when Palin’s prediction was labeled “strange” and “extremely far-fetched” by Foreign Policy Magazine. As CBS News puts it today, Palin “couldn’t resist crowing about how events have played out."
"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.”
Palin then rehashed her prediction with the introduction of: "Here's what this 'stupid,' 'insipid woman' predicted in 2008.” She then went on to repeat her predicted outcome.
You have to admit, Palin has taken some nasty hits in the media in the past, some have become part of history and others have gone down as “Saturday Night Live” favorite skits of the past. Talk radio host Mark Levin seemed to remember some of the backlash that surrounded Palin from those days. He wrote online:
"Palin not only knows where Russia is, but she knew what Putin would do to Ukraine with Obama as president."
When Russia invaded neighboring Georgia in 2008, Palin told an audience in Nevada:
"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."
This “extremely far-fetched” prediction suggests that the former Governor of Alaska might just know what she was talking about!
