Sarah Palin: 'Just a broken clock' with the 'right time,' suggests Peck

Sarah Palin is about as prophetic as "a broken clock that happened to tell the correct time," suggested a critical article by Michael Peck. He disclosed he also has written for the same 'high brow' magazine that trashed her as a "stupid," "insipid woman," for forecasting in 2008 how Obama's foreign policy inadequacies would open the door for Putin to move on the Ukraine.

The article was released from Forbes. This is the business channel whose staff can be remembered for pondering, "Sarah Palin's multiple personality disorders." In Tuesday's opinion piece, the Forbes' contributor suggested that Sarah Palin is "gleeful" that Russia poses a military threat to Ukraine and shot down any claim she might have as a prophet.

Michael Peck mocked Palin for "crowing" on her Facebook page, "Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. 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."

As vice-president candidate for John McCain, Palin had warned that then Senator Obama was an indecisive man whose tepid responses could be viewed by Vladimir Putin as a weakness. Palin apparently remains convinced that Obama "leads from behind," in foreign policy and that Obama is unwilling to embrace any "commonsense" assessment that Putin's Russia is a threat to world peace.

In 2008, Sarah Palin directly criticized Obama, saying:

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.

After applauding the graciousness of the "Foreign Policy Magazine," Peck, who also writes their publication," reiterated their position that Palin's comment, far from astute, was merely the political posturing of the GOP's 2008 narrative. "Democrats are weak on national defense and that weakness will endanger us all."

Move along, suggested the magazine and Peck. There's nothing new to see because "Democrats are weak on national defense," has remained the Republican mantra since World War II. Today, according to the LA Times, Obama was reported to have scoffed at any notion that Putin could claim justification for sending troops into Ukraine. Putin's assertion that Russia is protecting Russians isn’t "fooling anybody," said Obama.

Still, in spite of some very tense moments in the Ukraine crises, over on the Drudge Report, Putin has dropped off the main Drudge banner. The Drudge headline reads, "PHEW!" As long as the Drudge Report remains the fat lady at the news opera, it might be good to remember the stand-off with Russia isn't over until Putin drops below the Drudge fold and then off Matt Drudge's radar completely.

While many Sarah supporters believe Palin may rightly feel triumphant in the face of so much past ridicule, Obama is now coming in for a measure of ridicule from another source. Headlines on Drudge reveal that according to the semi-official Fars News Agency, General Masoud Jazayeri said, “The low-IQ US president and his country’s Secretary of State John Kerry speak of the effectiveness of ‘the US options on the table’ on Iran while this phrase is mocked at and has become a joke among the Iranian nation, especially the children.”
